They then generate an array of small squares that form a grid of power and speed settings you entered.
This allows a quick determination of optimal settings for a new materiel.
I have attached an SVG that achieves this goal, but man is it a slow process. I had to create each of the squares at a different RGB value, then when I get them into GFUI, I have to create a custom setting for each one of them, and make a guess at what green should be so I can get it cut out…
I am looking for the way to share my GF drawing where I have done all that work, but am still a NEWB, so I don’t know how to do that.
The left item is a ¼ Baltic Birch plywood from Rockler.
The right is 1 ⅛ inch plywood from (I think) Dunn Lumber.
The settings here range in speed (horizontal) 100 - 460 in increments of 40. Power from 10 to 100 in increments of 10. If I had a real materiel test tool, I would make a second grid in the 60-90 power and the 160-200 speed range to get the best “Consistent cut with minimal smoke damage” setting. For now I will use the top most row of the right most column that cut through.
