OK, I didn’t wrote it down, so I’m not entirely sure.
-all watercooling pipes are free (no kink)
-cooler is at 17°C
I’ cutting 3mm poplar plywood. To get through I use 100% Power and a speed of 40mm/sec. That seems to be quite a lot power and low speed.
I do think I got the same plywood cut at much lower settings before.
Also the beam cuts a fairly wide gap of 0.4mm.
EDIT: Embarrassed myself a bit here. Note to myself: set focus again after lowering z-axis for material removal…
But still get different width of the cutting gap along y-axis and it’s still 0.2mm at best, which should be narrower to my understanding.
What are your settings experiences?
EDIT: Also I have noticed, that my cutter leaves a rather small distance between nozzle and material (at least, when I compare it to what I see in the video on the mainpage).
So I need the expected distance for that, too.
That was a good step forward. I have the long nozzle.
And with this information I now have the correct focus as it seems. Now I cut 3mm poplar plywood with 50% power at a speed of 80mm/s (which is double the speed suggested by Bonne).
