Mooz 2 Laser Only Works With Dobot Sample Files


#1

I cannot get the Laser to print the Gcodes created in the Mooz software. The result is usually a diagonal line then a rectangle frame followed by back and forth burning of a short line. Sometimes it prints the complete outline as a dark rectangle. I can barely make out the line of the image.

Any thoughts?

My first guess is that you’re using the 0.5W laser that came with it, correct?

If so, most likely you’re printing it too fast. The default in the Mooz software is to move at 1200 mm/min, which doesn’t give the laser enough time to work.

I suggest you try reducing it to 400 mm/min and see if that works better.

I also wrote up a very thorough tutorial on using the laser here, which you might learn a lot from:

Thanks for your response.
I have the 1.6 watt laser too.
When I print the Dobot supplied files like Starbucks. it comes out great. when I use the Mooz Studio to convert a JPG of BMP it doesn’t work

I am trying to use your instructable and will let you know if it works. Just don’t understand why the sample files work and the Mooz Studio doesn’t

Yeah, I hear you. Maybe you could try opening one of the supplied ones in notepad and compare it to the ones you generate? See what’s different? I’d be really curious - maybe you could post them both here? (Or at least the generated ones?)
