Settings for scoring on bamboo cutting board

Looking for setting to score on a bamboo cutting board as engraving suggested time was 2 hours. Wanted to score the dear Santa tray image. Any suggestions on good score settings for that

Engraving times are more like 3D printing times as they are much farther to travel. If you are using a raster image, that is the only possibility. The good news is that bamboo gets black very easily so high speeds are a possibility, the bad news is the same if you try to use variable power. If you use the dot dithering and a fairly low LPI and the higher speeds available you might lessen the time needed.

There are literally dozens of threads on working with Bamboo. There is a search function at the top of every page.

As to engrave times, yes, it takes hours to engrave the full bed area. Time goes down as the print gets smaller.

Just use one of the default PG scores.

Unless it is a raster image. In which case engrave is the only option. :slightly_frowning_face:

Well he did say “score” :woman_shrugging:

Sounds raster to me. And not everyone gets the differences or possibilities at first.
