Laser etching assistance

Hi Everyone,
I am Bryan and this is my first post here. I am trying to do a tutorial on my youtube channel Everything X-Carve and need some help dialing in the laser settings with Imag-R and LightBurn. I have the Opt Lasers PLH3D-6W-XF+ Laser mounted to the machine and was able to engrave few things so looks that everything is working correctly. I have not yet pulled the trigger on the DA Big Gimpin plugin and wanted to reach out to you all to see if anyone has a similar setup to mine. I look forward to your assistance or comments.
Thank you in advance Bryan. @BryanEverythingX-car

Could you please provide the current settings?
Speed overall will be important here as well.

Sorry about that I am running at 1800 mm/min at 7.1% power.

Bryan, if you’re on Facebook, join the “House of Lasers” page. There are a LOT of knowledgeable laser people there. Good luck.

There is also a group about plh3d lasers on fb “Opt Lasers” so that will probably be the best source of information I think :slight_smile: Good luck from me too! hah
