New Release of PicEngrave Pro 5

Post by picengravertoo » Sat Dec 13, 2014 12:20 pm

Hi everyone.

We have been in testing for quite some time now using our Shapeoko 2 to make our full featured Image to gcode program completely grbl 9g compatible. PicEngrave Pro 5 has been officially released.

PEP5 has Analog, TTL modulation and Variable Feed Rate Laser photo engraving options and I know this forum is not relative, but now also supports PWM gcode for the LazerBlade grbl. With PicEngrave a settable Variable "Feed Rate Change" can be added to each line of gcode for image shading enhancements. Sonny Jeon's (chamnit) 9g is the only grbl available that can run our X, Y, Z & F Raster gcode on each line without any issues. Thanks again Sonny for making this all possible!

Our "Feed Rate Change" option can also be used with Spindle photo engravings for reducing the chip load in deeper cutting areas and then speeds up in shallow cut areas. Anyone that makes Lithophanes knows that a smaller bit gives best detailed results, but the risk of bit breakage increases and a roughing pass is always needed first. With our "FRC" option, Lithophanes can be engraved in one pass with a smaller bit to save on the overall project time.

A full list of PEP5 features, upgrade offers and a Demo Download is available on our web site.

Thanks.
Jeff
