Default First Laser burn

My first laser burn. It's on a 6X8 piece of BB scrap.Took 127 minutes to burn and, HOURS to design it in Inkscape. It's also the first time I've used Inkscape.

127 minutes to burn, that sounds like a lot . I’m guessing this is an argon laser module?
My co2 laser would have been a few minutes .

Looks good though Gene
