Power and speed parameters
The most important settings in the material database are the power and speed laser parameters, which can be set as a percentage between 0 and 100%.
The Power laser parameter describes the output power of the laser. 100% is the maximum power. A higher power is needed for dark wood or stamp engravings, while lower values are used for materials such as paper.
The Speed laser parameter describes the movement of the laser head. Fast speeds lead to short exposure times, while slow speeds lead to long exposure times. For example, large-scale engraving of TroLase materials are engraved at high speeds between 80 and 100%, but for photo engravings with lots of detail on wood, the speed should not exceed 10%. This setting also affects the quality of the finished laser cut.
Note that laser cutting and engraving speeds are not comparable, cutting is slower than engraving (a "high" cutting speed is 10%).
