This section describes the settings in the User Settings dialog.
Set the model name and laser type of your machine. This setting affects the machining range, driver power and preset parameters.
Set the processing range of your processing machine. There is usually no need to change the settings, as these are automatically set when you select the model name above. Set it when using an extension frame etc.
Adjust the current value flowing to the motor. It is not necessary to change usually because it is set automatically when you select the model name above. If step-out occurs frequently, adjusting this value may improve the situation.
You can set the grid spacing, the rectangle display unit of objects, etc. to mm or inch.
You can show or hide the grid.
You can also set the grid spacing and number of divisions. Basic grids appear gray on the campus, and split grids appear as red dotted lines. If the division number is 1, only the basic grid is displayed.
Specify the line width at preview. By setting the actual laser width, you can get close to the impression of the final product.
Seek speed: The movement speed when the laser head does not output the laser. Basically, it is the moving speed from the point where the laser output ends to the next laser output start point.
Default mode: Set the seek speed to the specified value.
Quality mode: Set the seek speed to the processing speed.
※ During raster processing and hatching processing (during vector painting processing), operations are always performed according to the Quality mode.
You can set the moving speed of the laser head for position check and range check.
If this setting is enabled, the processing order during cutting will be affected.
Example: When there are multiple pieces for a single vector item (i.e., a "◯" and a "△" as part of one item), and "Times" is set as 2 or more, the machine will process like items together.
[Enable]: ◯ > ◯ > △ > △ | [Disable]: ◯ > △ > ◯ > △
※ These functions are auxiliary. Please use it after making sufficient hardware adjustments.
When converting a figure to G-Code, it will be scaled by the specified ratio in each direction. If the object is near the boundary of the machining range, it may touch the limit switch during machining.
Apply shear to the object when converted to GCode to correct the machine's X-axis tilt. If the object is near the boundary of the machining range, it may touch the limit switch during machining.
Set enable / disable of automatic notification of software update. If there is a newer version, a dialog will appear when the software is launched.
