Notice that Etch Power provides you a range of values by percentage. This is a percentage of the total power that BoXZY's laser is capable producing.

Setting the lowest range, the left box, establishes the lowest laser power that BoXZY will turn on. In the example it is set at 5%. So when BoXZY sees the lightest pixel in your image, it will engrave that pixel at 5% of the max laser power that BoXZY is capable of producing.

Setting the highest range, the right box, establishes the highest laser power that BoXZY will turn on. In this example, it is set at 100%. So when BoXZY sees the darkest pixel in your image, it will engrave that pixel at 100% of the max laser power that BoXZY is capable of producing.

Increasing the range of values, increases the diversity of power ranges BoXZY can produce. The highest range of values would be 0% to 100%.

Answer To Question In Step1. Each material that you engrave has a point where it becomes the darkest it can be. When you increase the upper range of BoXZY's laser output, you create a higher amount of variations of high laser output. Sometimes this creates a range of values that are just black because even the lowest output creates black.
