Experimenting with various line thicknesses today on the laser cutter. Here’s a map design I created. Some of the lines that overlapped canceled each other out, so the negative space flipped a bit. Something to adjust in the future.
I’m having some success making leather stamps using 1/4″ cast acrylic. I’m preparing a B/W bitmap. The laser settings are 300mm/s with a Max. Power of 50% and a Min. Power of 30%. This goes for 6 passes and for my size patch it takes about 45 minutes. The line for the outline of the body of the guitar is around 0.65mm in the drawing.

For future reference, these settings cut cleanly:
Max power: 12
Min power: 10
