Crazy how I was just looking around for this on the forum today and there it was, posted already a day ago!
Though I am curious, and I think @jdodds was wondering what about in vector cutting mode? [quote=“jdodds, post:1, topic:2974”]
while vector cutting
@dan, I see the screen-shot is for engraving. My question would be for vector cutting mode. @jdodds says pulses per inch, but in vector mode, you can’t really say per inch perse because it you’re trying to set the frequency and that is time dependent along with the velocity…
What I’d like to see is the user be able to set the pulse frequency while “vector cutting”. Not only does this make dashed lines super easy (draw straight line in Illustrator and pulse the laser along that line while moving), but it would allow for other aesthetic affects. Would that be possible to do with the power supply? I’ve seen this on the Epilog lasers (I fell bad mentioning that and almost could hear you want to say “Well then go buy an Epilog, Christopher”)! …and perhaps that what you’ll tell me to say at which point I’ll put my tail between my leg and say, “But I don’t want to…I want the Glowforge”
I hope this makes sense! Pulsing laser while in vector cutting mode at user desired frequency. One step further would have the UI take the velocity and frequency into account in order to report to the user the pulses per inch!
