Epilog Fusion 60W Materials Settings
This document lists settings for common materials for the large laser cutter.
|Material||Thickness||Raster (Speed/Power)||Vector (Speed/Power/Frequency)|
|Acrylic||1/8"||90s 45p||8s 100p 100f|
|1/4"||90s 45p||2s 100p 100f|
|3/8"||90s 45p||Use 1/8" settings multiple times|
|1/2"||90s 45p||Use 1/8" settings multiple times|
|Anodized Aluminum||90s 35p||Do not cut|
|Glass||30s 100p||Do not cut|
|Wood/ MDF||1/8"||60s 100p||10s 100p 10f|
|1/4"||60s 100p||3s 100p 10f|
|3/8"||60s 100p||Use 1/8" settings multiple times|
|1/2"||60s 100p||Use 1/8" settings multiple times|
Optimizing laser cuts is an iterative process. Some basic guidelines for adjusting settings to optimize outcomes are:
- If the engraving is too dark, increase speed or decrease power.
- If the darkest shade on an engraving is too dark, lower the power by 10% first. Power setting controls the upper limit of darkness of the engraving.
- In all other cases, modulating the speed of the laser offers finer control of shading. Modulate in increments of 5%.
- For cutting very thick materials, use incremental cuts at settings for thinner materials to get through it more cleanly. Cutting through thick materials has greater risk of burning.
