Adding Atomstack X7/A10/S10 in Lightburn

Atomstack Controllers - GRBL
BAUD rate - 115200

Since no one, not even Lightburn support can even muster up the brain cells to answer a question properly on how to get their software to work for multiple devices, in this case Atomstack controllers, I will post it here. Also, in their defense, this is not a printer you can just press a button and your print magically appears. Take your time and remember safety first!

We’re not all computer nerds, or at least, we haven’t been for the last decade but for those starting out and wanting to get this thing to work, you have to ensure your settings are correct.

  • Download Driver - CH340 Drivers for Windows, Mac and Linux
    It’s for the X7 pro, but it should work for all others.

  • Install driver. I use Windows 10. The X7/A10/S10 Baud rate should be set to 115200.

  • In windows, you can do this by hitting your windows key and typing Device Manager.

  • Install Lightburn

  • Click the program and it will open Device Manager.

  • Under “Ports” you will find your device with the driver name you just installed. Double click it.

  • Under Port Settings tab, click Bits per second and select 115200. Click OK.

  • When adding your Laser, click Create Manually and select precisely “GRBL”.

You should be all set from here.

Um, Welcome, and nice to meet you. I am trying to understand what value this statement is intended to provide. We enjoy when our members share their successes and provide the steps used to achieve some goal. It helps the entire community, so thank you for sharing that part. :slight_smile:

If you have had an unsatisfactory experience, working with our team or our products, we want to know and work with you for the best possible outcome. Yet, there is no need to insult anyone or post assumptions about our ability to “muster up the brain cells”. Just not helpful. Please play nice.

You killed me with kindness. Now I feel bad.

I suppose I was frustrated that I couldn’t find anything relating to proper software setup for atomstack units. The only topic or question I found was a closed/locked thread on this forum with a final response from a mod essentially saying we’re on our own when it comes to help with getting your software to play nice with our hardware. Hence the source of my frustration which resulted in my previous statement. Nothing directed at anyone in particular, but rather the perception of indifference Lightburn was portraying.

LightBurn supports an ever-growing list of laser manufactures such as Atomstack. Many of these manufactures use a common GCode firmware known as Grbl (GitHub - gnea/grbl: An open source, embedded, high performance g-code-parser and CNC milling controller written in optimized C that will run on a straight Arduino), which is one of the standards LightBurn supports. We provide significant resources to understand how we work with Grbl and provide many posts here on the forum as well. We typically provide links to those resources when folks are asking how to get their system to work with our software. These are worth review: Adding a Laser - LightBurn Software Documentation

and: Common Grbl Setups - LightBurn Software Documentation

And from the forum, we provide a specific section for Atomstack, although not all Atomstack issues have been placed there, so use the search, found at the top-right of every page to find information you are after. Atomstack - LightBurn Software Forum
