I found 225/25/1/ to be a bit on the deep and dark side. I got some great results using

1000/100/1/270lpi/x2defocus to have a slightly lighter colour still deep
1000/80/1/270lpi/x2defocus deep to medium deep and still great contrast
500/35/1/270/x2defocus for a light to medium engrave.

Math.

If the material is .100”, you would enter .200” into the focal height field under manual settings.
