The required image resolution will always depend on the specific application that you are trying to process. When running “normal” engraving jobs, use "500dpi resolution" with "Air Assist On" to combine superior quality matched with faster working speed. Both parameters can also be adjusted in JobControl® via the material database.
When photo engraving on paper, we suggest decreasing the resolution to 250-333 dpi. This will reduce the chances of the slightly enlarged screen points that appear on the paper from overlapping.
Additionally, set the image resolution to 1000 dpi if you only want to process a cut into the paper.
