The perfect DPI settings for your laser

How to choose the correct
scan gap


It makes no sense to choose the highest possible DPI, if your laser point dont matches the size of the scan gap.
You can make a dot and measure your laser beam, or you can just use safe values which we marked green.

    How it works:
  • 1. Make sure your mirrors are aligned perfectly
  • 2. Make sure you did a ramp test, to make sure your focus is perfect
  • 3. Do a quick "Shot" with your laser, and measure the dot (I would use Acrylic)
  • 4. Search your dot size in the table
    5. Use the DPI next to the size for all of your images now
