burnburn correction in mm (bigger values for tighter fit). Use BurnTest in "Parts and Samples" to find the right value.


Set burn in the Default Settings to the lowest value to be tested. To get an idea cut a rectangle with known nominal size and measure the shrinkage due to the width of the laser cut. The burn value is half the difference of the overall size as shrinkage is occuring on both sides. You can use the reference rectangle as it is rendered without burn correction.
