    Default question on litho settings

    I have just created a new litho and it just doesn't look sharp that is why I questioning my settings.
    attached is the picture I used to create the pattern and the pattern itself.
    The settings are depth of 200 and height of 400. should I have stayed at 180 or not.
    please see attachments and give me your suggestion on the settings.
    Fell free to adjust the ptn if you feel you can get a sharper image.
    To the average customer it looks great, but to me it could be sharper.
    My version is 3.0
    thanks

    I have often wondered why it is that
    Conservatives are called the "right" and Liberals are called the "left".
    "The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of
    the fool to the left."

    I would stay at the 0.180 depth setting, less chance of a carve through. Try adjusting the height up or down. 300 (to me) looked a little better.

    I think Floyd's settings make a big difference.

    Also I seen where you are using the 1/16 ballnose, if you use the 1/32 ballnose details really show up ( I prefer the 1/32 ballnose.)
