Has anyone worked out good settings for vector engraving edge lit acrylic panels (e.g. for simple line art or text)?
Are there any established “best practices” for edge lit acrylic (in general) so far?
Because of the way motion control is handled in the Glowforge, there tends to be significant depth variability during vector engraves (scores). Going around corners seems particularly prone to creating spikes. This all makes the engrave look kind of rough. I’ve had some luck reducing this by using lower power at slower speeds and, by disconnecting corners in the designs.
I searched the forums but, didn’t really find anything relevant. I suspect I am probably just not finding it with search. I saw that some people were converting vector engrave to raster for edge lit applications. I hate to give up speed and simplicity if I don’t have to.
