Hi, Help please!
I have read through lots of posts and watched hours worth of videos but I am still stuck.
I have purchased a cheap (wanted but couldn’t afford a better one) laser engraver from Ebay.
It came with Benbox software which works on simple things, but keeps crashing mid engrave for anything detailed.
The laser is unbranded, has small arduino type board as the controller.
Its a 2500mw laser with x and y stepper motors.
The bed is 400 x 500 mm.
When running Benbox, it made you choose the controller which was:
I think it read grbl 1.1e on the output screen.
I want to buy some better software and Lightburn came highly recommended from Facebook, but I can’t get the trial to work.
I have tried each of the controllers, some will even start… but never turn the laser on (it moves like it is engraving), none will let me move the laser.
Any help to get started would be gratefully received.
