Multiple laser CO2 cutting and laser engraving calibration tools! Everything you’ll possibly need whether you’re calibrating your power and speed settings, adjusting your focal depth, adjusting your laser beam alignment, or measuring the thickness of a piece of material.
This pack includes these handy items:
• Cutting Test Cards: 7 different versions made for specific machine wattage. There are 7 different versions for machines powered from 5w -150w
• Engraving Test Cards: Also different 7 versions made for machines with wattages ranging from 5w-150w
Laser Cutting & Engraving test cards come in both small and large versions. The large versions have many more test areas. The speed and power levels are all customizable and can be edited in Lightburn or Illustrator. Instructions on how to edit the power and speed settings are included!
• Laser Step focal depth measurement tool: Use this to measure the distance between your laser head and your workpiece. Many different sizes included for any size lens and focus depth you’re using. Focus range measurements available from 3mm – 37mm.
• Material Thickness Tester: A calibration tool with notches measured at the most popular material thicknesses. Just slide your material into the notches to see how thick your material is.
• Vertical Alignment Targets: These can be printed out on paper and used when vertically aligning your laser beam on the Z-axis.
• Ramp Test: Get the perfect focal distance with the included ramp test. It’s re-usable so you’ll only need to cut out the top portion if you’d like to use it on a different lens. Fusion 360 file included with editable parameters if you’d like to edit the height, length, or width. Instructions for how to use the ramp test are included.
• Kerf Test: The kerf test uses very small pieces so that you don’t waste a bunch of material getting the perfect kerf for your finger-joint projects. The kerf test includes instructions on how to use it. You basically try out a few pieces with different kerf settings in Lightburn, or your software of choice until the kerf is perfectly lined up. Then you can use that kerf setting as a reference when cutting out finger jointery projects.
All calibration tools include Illustrator, SVG, and Lightburn (where applicable) files. Lightburn or illustrator files include text that can be edited if you’d like to use your own values. I tried to make these as easy as possible to customize to your liking, but there are multiple versions of each file so you probably won’t need to do any editing. Just pick the tool that fits your machine, and cut it out!

This is an instant-delivery DIGITAL PRODUCT. No physical items will be shipped.
Note: When importing files INTO illustrator, use 1:1 ratio in MILLIMETERS.
Note: When importing SVG INTO LIGHTBURN, make sure 72dpi is set.
(Edit > Settings > File Settings > 72DPI)
Added DXF files for every version. The SVGs were made in illustrator and import at the wrong scale in Inkscape. Illustrator exports with 72 dpi and Inkscape imports with 96 dpi. If you’re importing into Inkscape, use the DXF and select “Method of scaling” > “Read from file” under the import options.
Updated Ramp Test measurements to be more accurate.
Adjusted some engraving settings based on feedback.
Update v4: Cutting & Engraving Test Cards: Removed 5-25w – broke this up into two new groups.
Update v5: Cutting & Engraving Test Cards: Added RUIDA RDWorks Software files for Small Laser Test Cards. RDWorks files have the extension “.rld”
Update v6: Added Lightburn Files for Kerf Tests.
Update v7: Added instructions for changing mm/sec to mm/min in lightburn.
Update v8: Adjusted power/speed settings for 15-25w test cards
Update v9: Adjusted Large Test Card Data Layer PWR/SPD settings for a wider range of machines.
Update v10: Fixed some inaccurate measurements in material thickness gauges.
Update v12: Added xTool Creative Space files! Support for xTool machines up to 60 watts. Maximum engraving speed I was able to add was 250mm/sec. If you have an xTool S1, contact me and I’ll help you figure out speeds up to 600mm/sec.
