Settings for 1/4 inch birch plywood

I second what @Jules said for the cut. I’m working with Woodpeckers Baltic Birch 1/8 and 1/4 (more often the 1/8). I need to revisit my 1/4" engrave settings now that I’ve done a few more jobs on the thinner ply. You’ll be able to get away with a faster cut if the board is absolutely flat and flush with the honeycomb, but here’s what I have in my notes that you could toy with.

1/4" BB
CUT | Full Power, Speed 140, Focus 0.23, 1 pass

1/8” BB

ENGRAVE | Full Speed, Power 75, 340 LPI
ENGRAVE | Full Speed, Power 80, 270 LPI
