image engraving setting

Hi, Im a newbie trying to engrave photo using laser. May I know what is the correct setting to select in repetier host?  Thank you!


  • Repetier-Host has no settings/slicer for engraving. If it is based on a supported firmware you can send the file with it, but no special help, sorry. 
  • Can the repitier host be set to (G Code) turn Off the fan to turn on the laser during extruding and turn on the fan to turn off the laser during non printing/extruding movements?
  • No it can't and it would also not help in general since fan commands must be synced with movements and printer path planning. Repetier-Firmware has a laser mode which does this conversion printer side so it can sync with movements without stopping all movements on each change.
