So I just purchased a fiber laser from Omtech and it came with settings that are important. I figured I'd make a post here with pictures of all the settings incase I (or you if you have the same one) ever need to refrence them again. These are from the factory for use in EZCad 2. Here they are:
I'm also going to upload the very newest and latest version of ezcad 2.14.11 for download (right click, save as (you'll need 7zip to unzip the file). I am finding that ez cad runs better when you choose compatibility mode for windows xp service pack 3 on windows 10.
Finally, a great resource for settings for fiber lasers is fiberlasersettings.org. They have most of the settings predetermined for you and will give a great starting point for material engraving.
I'll be doing videos and tutorials as I learn so stop by my YouTube and this blog often to see more fiber laser content! I'll be updating this post with more info in the future.
Upfront Disclosure. Onefinity AND Shapeoko sent me their machines, FOR FREE. Shapeoko asked that I show of their machine when I used it, Onefinity asked that I beta test the machine and help improve the machine and push it's limits for them.

If you’re looking at CNC – computer numerical control machine – you’ve probably come across the Onefinity and the Shapeoko CNC machines.
If you've been following me on social medias, you've seen me use both machines. Both CNC machines work in a very similar way, but will create 2, 2.5, and 3D cutouts of the same materials. They are both designed to be affordable desktop models to be used by hobbyists, home business, and small business alike. They're also priced around $2,000 us making them a solid choice as a first CNC machine.
The question is – which one should you buy? I get asked this daily, so I figured I'd write up a post about the differences between the two and which one I've decided to keep in my personal shop. Click the "read more" below to read the full article.
