Engraving seems quit functioning cleanly in small areas. I'm writing 24pt test and the Tops of my T's and P's are large and clear but the vertical parts are not clear and sometimes not even there.

Quick Answer:

You are engraving too fast for the charge/discharge ability of the glass CO2 laser.

Complete Answer:

You should notice that the higher speeds of engraving do not allow time for the glass laser to trigger ON and charge to proper power before moving to locations that command the laser to shut off. For this reason, thin details are often lost when trying to engrave at too high of speeds.
