The cut settings would be much slower than 500 and more power than 1. Your settings are wrong.


A score is just an underpowered cut.
those settings are definitely way too low to do anything.
For 1/8” birch plywood I usually just use the PG Medium Maple Ply settings. Start there and adjust if it doesn’t all the way through.


Thank you. Is there some sort of chart for this or just trial and error?

If you’re not using PG materials then officially no. There is a public google doc floating around in this forum somewhere of user submitted info, use search function :slight_smile:


As suggested, start with a Proofgrade setting and adjust as necessary. Start with medium maple plywood.


This question is outside our team’s scope. I’ve moved it to the Beyond the Manual so the discussion can continue there.

Check out #6.
