These parameters are provided as a general guideline and should serve as a good starting point. Individual materials and preference will determine the final combination of settings for each application. These parameters are provided as a "general range" and therefore some user testing and experimentation is required. Here is some ezcad files that is important for you to mark on stainless steel, it will give you some information what your fiberlaser can do.
1. Power vs Speed Grid 2. Power vs Freq Grid 3. Frequency vs Hatch Grid 4. Ezcad 2.14.11.zip 3.75 MB
5. Ezcad 2.14.10.zip with usb drivers 33.12 MB 6. EzCad parameter setting and debugging
7. Here are more test grids. (Dropbox link) Thanks to Zac Zac for sharing those awsome test grids. For MOPA and non mopa fiber lasers.

Here is a video from Zac Zac how a fiber laser source looks like inside

Do you need help ?? Join the groups below. I think these are one of the best groups on facebook regarding fiber lasers.
Alot of usefull information : Fiber Laser Engraving Talk and Tech Fiber Laser, The Next Level
Hatch settings ?? What is that ??? Check out the the video Beginner's Guide to Hatch Settings from JefferyJ
Learn how the hatches and frequency cause different effects. Look at it like sandpaper. Smaller frequency
more aggressive. And power is how much pressure you put down and speed is the rate of sanding the surface.
ROTARY, ring rotary or rotary for tumblers has always been a struggle for newcomers.
Check out this youtube video for Fiber Laser Rotary Basics. Here is another one, Fiber Laser Rotary Example 1
Thanks to Elephant Engraving Co. for these videos.
Different Hatch types:
Optimization two way hatch.
Similar with bidirectional hatch, but the end of each end
Dashed Hatch
Hatch fills the object with perforated hatch lines.
Unidirectional hatch.
The hatch lines will be marked from left to right.
Bidirectional hatch.
Hatch lines will be marked from left to right first, and then from right to left.
Ring like hatch.
Fills objects from the outside to the inside like a ring

CUT settings = Use 0.2mm offset in design for cutting.
