Cutting with laser

Good evening, I have been doing some reading and can’t seem to find what I’m looking for. In vcarve if I set percent to 100 is that actually full power? Im trying to cut 1/8 birch and I have seen it done but I can’t seem to make a dent in it. Anyone done this with success?

It should, but you need to slow the speed way down. I set mine to 100mm/min and 2-4 passes to cut through 3mm BB plywood.
