First tests with laser engraving, bit disappointed

Post by laserinho » Wed Feb 03, 2021 2:58 pm

Hello guys newbie here :)

Yesterday my twotree totem laser 5W arrived and I had a lot of fun building and testing it. After the first few attempts there was the disappointment. My png file and also svg files are totally distorted when the machine is done engraving.

Especially text files are totally messed up. Some forms worked perfectly like in the attachment and others didn't.

Edit: I use lasergrbl and tried lightburn, the images were downloads and created with inkscape.

Can anybody maybe give me some tips?

Thank you very much in advance

best, laserinho
