Boss Laser Settings
The below is to help you figure out your settings for your cutting job on the Boss Laser. Please do not be creative with settings unless you know what you're doing, because you can easily set things on fire.
There are several test cut pieces. These test various power/speed in a pie shape going from 10% to 100%. These are a good starting point.
