I recently bought a re-badged (RS Laser) JQ Laser 1290 machine, it’s a large upgrade from a K40D both in cutting area and learning curve.
I saw the machine operating (cutting and engraving) but never thought to ask about the software specifically. I was given a USB disk with LaserCutEngrave6.0 and RDWorks V.6 with a few sample sample files
After installing the extraction, air compressor and chiller it was time to install the software. The machine will operate using LaserCutEngrave on a Win 7 machine, it’s not very intuitive and is very basic. However when I try to run RD Works it returns a connection error and with Lightburn it’s unable to find the machine.
I’ve been getting a com port error in Device manager but I’ve been unable to find a suitable driver online. I hope that some might be able to guide me in finding a driver or about making adjustments to the port settings (currently at the default ).
I’ve tried connecting the machine to an XP and Win 10 with no success.
The controller is a LNC-LS232A
The controller keypad looks like a very basic unit
