I bought one of the blue 50w Chinese lasers a couple of days ago and when in light burn if I set the speed at 15mm/s @ 80% min/max as soon as I send it over to the machine it automatically sets itself @ 80% max and 20% minimum power.
Is there something I am doing wrong or is there something I need to change within the machine or program?
My machine is the blue 50w chinese laser (40w actual power?)
It has a Ruida controller.
lightburn is running at 1.0.04
I’m using a windows surface laptop 2
And here are some screenshots of the problem i am having.
So when i have it in lightburn running at 80% power for a cut at 15mm/s it looks fine but as soon as it starts on the machine it runs @ 80% max and 20% min
Im just looking to find out what i need to do to cut 4.5mm Acrylic and 3mm Ply
Okay so I did all of that and I can change the settings on the controller to 80% max and 80% min and run it that way. Is there a way I can do it so that I don’t have to do this each time I send something to the machine?
Do you happen to have the ‘Default’ set to ON (green) in the Cut Settings? You want that off (red) to allow the settings from LightBurn to be used. With that on, the settings on the controller will be used.
