    Hmmm... You want to be the coolest, best-est thing out there, on a par with the Apples, Ferraris, Porsches, and Mercedes of the world, but you insist on a Kia or Smart budget approach? It is...

    Well, it certainly isn't "new". Every RF laser I've seen (primarily Epilogs and Universals, the oldest being from the mid-late 1990s) has had a frequency setting. And it has nothing to do with dots...

    I can't swear the following is absolutely correct but it is my understanding of what is going on. At least with RF lasers, the FREQ setting is sort of a laser firing rate control. I think you were...

    Agree 100% and that's why I responded to John Lifer John Lifer's comment: "IT IS A KNOWN ISSUE WITH EPILOGS. Seems that it is VERY common for the first file to 'scramble' or skip part of the FIRST...

    Mayhaps I read more into the OP's question, but I think he was looking for a more general solution that would allow an entire design to be scaled while keeping certain features "fixed", not simply...

    You are not quite right about Epilogs 'scrambling' the first job of the day. What actually happens is that the tube often doesn't fire right off the bat after the machine has sat powered down for a...

    If you don't want to redo the whole thing, you would need to use a parametric design tool. Such a tool allows you to specify and/or constrain certain parameters (hence the term "parametric") of...

    You can select your doubled/overlapping design, hit Ctl-K or Arrange/Break Curve Apart (it will become 20 curves), and then click on each of the 10 duplicates and delete. Finally, select the 10...

    One reason steppers run very hot is that they are often driven with constant current, so they constantly dissipate power even when standing still and essentially no torque is required to hold the...

    That is the one I have and it works very well with my Epilog.

    Jumping around on the cuts definitely helps reduce the fire hazard, albeit at the cost of taking more time.

    I cut some snowflake ornaments from 1/8 clear and white acrylic a couple of years ago,...

    Maybe you could cut a slotted rectangle out of acrylic as a filler. The rectangle would be 1/4" wide (slot width) and as long as the base's slot, and a 1/8" slot in the middle of the rectangle to...

    I have a repeat customer who wants oak engraved. I think it looks horrible but he loves it. It's like Kev said, when you try to deep engrave you will get significant highs and lows from the...
