Reduce the max etch power. It's highlighted in orange. When I experiment with values, I decrease this percentage by 20 at a time at first. So 100% becomes 80%, and if that doesn't work, 80% becomes 60%.

Notice the incredible change in detail in the second image. The top cat is just black. No detail. This was done at 100% max Etch Power. The bottom engraving was engraved at a max Etch Power of 50%. The only change between these etchings is the max Etch Power.

This took merely a couple minutes of tuning. With some real thought and additional adjustments, the definition can be even more dramatically improved
