Have been happily using the A350 for a couple of years and have just updated to Luban 4.9.1 and I’m having an issue with generating G-code for laser engraving.
I have a feeling it is related to the constant power mode option. (don’t recall seeing this option in previous versions of the software)
I am able to successfully export the G-code as per normal but when I engrave, the laser is continuously firing so as well as my design I have a (slightly fainter) engraved line plotting the every move of the laser head in the “white” areas of my design…
I have tried with the “constant power mode” box checked and unchecked, I have tried bitmap and vector files and I have tried to use dot filled rather than line filled engraving… the latter actually gave me a usable result as it is not continuously firing although it does still plot a line from my origin to the start of the design before it begins engraving the actual design as intended… (not ideal)
wondering if this is maybe a bug with the new update or perhaps I’m doing something wrong with the slightly unfamiliar new dialogue box.
another suspicion I have is that it has something to do with the “preset” I have selected? I don’t remember ever having to use a preset before but I can’t seem to proceed without having one selected since the update…
I’ve tried setting up my own preset with all the parameters set the way I want but Luban keeps reverting some of the setting to values it thinks I should use; again, seems a bit “buggy”
I have reinstalled the software but having the same issues.
Any help much appreciated…
