There is probably a limit to the total number of points per frame with that sd card reader. The ilda file format has a hard limit of 65536, which is the limit of a 16-bit unsigned integer. But that's way too many for any practical purposes. Can you post an example?

I managed to get my truss template exported but when I display the image it comes out distorted, I tried to take some pictures but I could not get the complete image.

I managed to get a basic square to project but the corners were slightly rounded.

Truss is somewhat detailed. You should think about reducing the information to the absolute minimum.

To get better looking images, you can change the parameters of optimization.

LaserBoy space is defined in 3D short integer, so X Y and Z are integer values from -32767 to +32767.

In the [Tab] menu you can set the maximum displacement in points (in the coordinate system shown above) between any two vertices.

Options 3 and 4 allow you to set this for when the laser is lit or when it is blank.

This controls the scanner velocity. A lower number is a shorter distance per clock cycle. So the scanners move slower.

Also, you can increase the dwell in corners. Dwell is a function of the acuteness of the angle so the maximum dwell in points is for a full 180 turn (a  line folding back on itself).

Lowering the max  vector distance  and adding dwell will increase the number of points in a frame. So your DAC will take that much longer to get through all of the points.

The longer it takes to scan an entire frame of points, the more  it will flicker.

If you hit the [Enter] key, the menus will disappear and reappear.

Also, look in menu x and turn on remove redundant vectors. Sometimes dxf drawings have  multiple lines where there should only be  one. With this checked, the minimization step will find them and remove them.

Finally!

A new full public release of LaserBoy!!!

https://laserboy.org/code/LaserBoy_Current.zip

I cleaned up everything. If you already have an installation folder of LaserBoy, I would recommend renaming it as old and unzipping this in its place. Then move your files from the old folder(s) to this new one.

For Windows users: The zip no longer contains a 32-bit version.

LaserBoy.exe is now a 64-bit application.

Please let me know if you find any problems or have questions.
