Laser 2D Engraving in TruCUT Laser Software

"Laser engrave" or "laser scan" is a common laser machine function to put pictures onto the material surface. http://am.co.za/ With the advanced circle filling feature, a perforated plate with round holes effect can be created on to your engraving surface.

What is Laser 2D Engraving

Laser 2D engrave, also called "laser engrave" or "laser scan", http://am.co.za/ is a way to print vector or 2-bit bitmap files onto solid material, for example, http://am.co.za/ wood board, by turning the laser onto a fixed power when scanning the vector line or the black dot of your artwork, http://am.co.za/ and turn the laser off on other areas. And eventually print the design image onto the material on a fixed depth in all the black areas in your design.

How-To Achieve Laser Engraving

Double click the layer identification colour in the Layer Management interface, http://am.co.za/ and then a dialog box pops up as below:
Laser Engraving Options

Speed
Engraving speed on X-axis. http://am.co.za/
Power
Laser power when the laser scan is processed. http://am.co.za/
Scan Step
Moving distance on Y-axis when engraving a row on X-axis. http://am.co.za/
Expand scale
Mainly used to compensate small letters, http://am.co.za/ whose transverse strokes are smaller than the actual size. It can be adjusted to positive or negative numbers depending to the desired effect.
Bi-Direction
Laser is on in both positive and negative X-axis movements when this parameter is selected. http://am.co.za/ The engraving efficiency will be much higher (double) when the laser engraves in both direction. http://am.co.za/ But if you need a high process precision, do not select this parameter.
Air-On http://am.co.za/
Turn Air On or Off while laser is engraving.

Advanced Laser Engrave Option

To set advanced engraving parameters. http://am.co.za/ Click the "..." button, a dialog box appears as below:
Advanced Laser Engraving Options

Fill with Circle
Use circles to fill the object, http://am.co.za/ the default setting is to engrave outside the circle.
Engrave in the Circle
Choose engrave in the circles. http://am.co.za/
Radius
Radius of the circle. http://am.co.za/
Space
Distance between two circles. http://am.co.za/
2nd Laser
Laser power of the second laser tube. http://am.co.za/ This setting will only be available for twin-laser machines.
Perforated Engrave
Normal Engrave
(Red Colour is Laser-On Area)
Filled with Circles
(Engraved Outside of Circles)
Engraved in the Circles

With this circle filling engrave function, http://am.co.za/ you can easily achieve a Perforated Plate with a Round Hole effect.
