I’ve been consumed by the “puzzle bug” lately, and one thing I constantly encounter is that simple (proofgrade) cuts results in pieces that will only slide together one way. This is a result of the cut being slightly tapered - cut, of course, is not what’s happening, but rather the annihilation of material nearer the surface is more significant than that down below.
In pondering this conundrum, I was thinking - wouldn’t a “straight cut” proofgrade setting be useful? Pretty sure it’s a simple matter of splitting the cut into multiple passes, which I plan to experiment with, but has anyone else spent time thinking about this?
… and another thought I’ve had, is whether the laser could be “modulated” at a high frequency, dependent on feed speed, so that it mimics the effects of multiple passes in a single pass?
