Hi I’m a researcher relatively new to 3D printing and I’t trying to get a Moai printer to expose a material applied to a glass slide. I’m have some questions about how to write the gcode to get this done. Basically I want the galvos to move to a new position (X1 Y1) at some speed (F6000) then turn on the laser for a set amount of time ( G1 F0 X1 Y1 E0? or something with G4 and P ). Turn off the laser (no E value) then this process would repeat.
If this was an FDM printer I just use G0 F10 E30 to get a 3 min extrude or hold but not sure how to implement with a laser.
Something in here is probably wrong, anyone have suggestions?
G0 F6000 X1 Y1 Move to spot A, no laser
G1 F0 X1 Y1 E0 Fire laser at spot A (How do I specify time?)
G0 F6000 X1 Y2 Move to spot B, no laser
G1 F0 X1 Y2 E0
FYI I know laser intensity in a singe spot will burn FEP and films which is why I’m not using them.
