Hello,
I'm looking for a file to make samples of different materials to see how far you can go.

Like the file used in this film of Thunderlaser:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_cont ... e=emb_logo

I want to make material templates for my shop.
I can make it myself of course, but if it already existst....

Regards,
Erik

I have a similar sized machine with a 130w EFR tube. I can post one of my parameter file tomorrow... but. My machines upper mA limit [32mA] is reached at 45% on my controller- yours may be very different depending upon the matching between your tube and HV power supply.

These will allow you to benchmark your system AND if you save one of each it can be a reference for future comparison of how your system changes over time and to evaluate settings for a particular effect.

That is a good resource, People should be aware that they should not surpass their individual machines mA meter maximums- 85% is not a universal maximum power setting [it apparently may be correct for Boss lasers].
