Trying to understand how to interpret the “scan gap” conversation elsewhere and translate that to GF settings.
i’m working with some software scripts from the facebook group “that dude with a lazer,” (posted samples engraved on my universal a couple of months ago while my GF was in for repair). i’m trying to figure out how to interpret “scan gap” into the GFUI.
Sean, the script author, said, “scan gap is referred to as line interval, resolution etc in your laser software.” And i’m supposed to look at what the scan gap is and use that to determine what the DPI of the image should be. not matching those up will result in less optimal results with the script.
so… how do i reconcile those scan gap numbers (.03 to .25) with settings in the GFUI?
i just randomly set the LPI to 340 and engraved this one one a piece of BB last night, which was set at 300dpi. but i have no idea what DPI i really should be setting up the image at or LPI i should be engraving at without knowing what the scan gap is or how to interpret that in the GFUI.
