Engraving Quality on EM2

 Im trying to do my first laser engraving, and the quality looks a bit less than I’d like.

3mm Plywood with a 2000 cut rate, default for raster.

Suggestions?

Hi  Glen

Quick guess but I’d say your to close. do forget the mat height. Ie all though the  material setting for 3mm ply sets the height to 3mm, you need to add 10 for the mats. So height should be 13.

I did the same thing. ( and still do sometimes )
