Settings Question about IMP112G

Hi all… I am all set to print to a clear acrylic item #IMP112G from JDS and when I use the setting that I have saved it tells me that the print will only take 1:26. And i KNOW that is not correct.

I am using the following settings:
Meduim Clear Acrylic
speed: 550
power: 80
LPI: 45

Any help would be great!
THANKS!

LPI of 45 seems very low, but I don’t know what you are actually printing as I don’t have the JDS catalog.

Here is an image of the item and my engrave file.

The item is found in the JDS Industries catalog:

I honestly thought the same thing about the LPI. But that’s what I had in my notes. I upped the LPI to 270 and the time jumped to 8:50 which seems much more logical. Set the LPI to 450 and time is 14:33.

So NOW I’m wondering if I simply wrote it down wrong in my list.

I would guess so. An LPI of 45 would have the lines visible to the naked eye.

Why not just use the Proofgrade setting for clear acrylic? I would choose sd graphic for the engrave.
