    Changing lenses is easy, though it can take a bit the first time to get them calibrated in the software (after that, it's all saved... there's a bit more to it than that, but it's easier to explain...

    Kev is spot on. MOPA can laser various colors on metal only-- and even then it's relatively slow and I've seen some folks pulling out their hair as batches of the "same" metal won't behave the same...

    Kev,
    In one of my facebook groups a guy from Italy posted the below pic and settings, so looks like it's possible. I don't know if it's the genuine case or not (looks to be though)

    Kev,
    I was thinking 2.10, not 2.14.10. If you're having crashes where more RAM might help, try the download at the link below. The guy on the forum that did 2.14.11 also did the same change on the...

    Kev,
    Honestly I'm not sure-- I hadn't run any large enough files previously to have any issues with EzCAD crashing on me. However, once I saw the blog about how to edit the program files to allow...

    Julian,
    Besides the link in my post, I'm not aware of another version out there. I've seen the increased memory one floating around in a couple of my facebook groups, but I have not seen one that...

    I don't have pictures, but with my 150 lens (well, that's what it's closest to, long story) on my 30W non-MOPA I used 1500 mm/s, 99% power, 35kHz, 0.002 (yes, tiny) hatch and got a fairly decent...

    All,
    You folks have been a huge help to me here and I wanted to share this file with you folks first. On one of my facebook groups a much nerdier nerd than myself went in and changed some aspects of...

    I think part of it is also the crowd they market to. Their adverts show off the laser as a "pick a design, press a button, walk away" type process-- and I think this gives confidence to many folks...

    Ha, I should note that I just realized my laser was ever so slightly out of focus to get the whites. I dropped it back into focus and everything is brown now. I'm going to blame forgetting to check...

    Alright, so I have a giant telecentric lens on my machine at the moment (and a 150 on deck I can switch to... and two other focal lengths on the way) and used Kev's settings above (600mm/s, 99%,...

    Kev, you're fantastic. I'll run through your notes and give it a shot hopefully tonight. Thank you!

    Vic,
    I do have the Tykma settings PDF tucked in a folder somewhere, I'll see if they have any good tidbits in there for this application.

    John,
    I appreciate it, thanks. I have a plain-Jane laser...

    If you install the lights in your shop, that life expectancy is probably true. I mean, my wife understands-- when I say a project will take 3 days, that's 3 "workshop" days, which I think equals out...

    I'm not sure if my Google-fu is at 100% this morning, but I don't think you can etch glass with that sort of laser. Adding a coating to the glass may make it slightly less impossible.
