12-How to Set Cutting Parameters

Laser cutter software RDworks v8 tutorial 12 How to Set Cutting Parameters

Hi guys, this is ken from Thunderlaser.
In this lesson, we will learn how to set the cut parameters.
Let’s select the target object first. Is Output must be set to “Yes”
Then set the cutting speed. For what speed to set, it depends on the material you’re going to cut and the depth you need.
Usually, for most laser cutters, the max cutting speed is 300mm/s(you can set faster speed, but that won’t shorten the cutting time much and might reduce the quality of the cutting) For processing Mode, select “Cut”
Then set the min power and max power, if you need to get a better cutting quality, usually, you should set the min power a bit lower than the max power.
Now click ok and send the file to your laser cutter.
And that’s all for today. See you.
