I had the same problem.
The AS a5 was found by lightburn. When i gott my x7… It found it as my old a5. I really like the atom stack build however I feel that they perhaps rushed to production. The fact that the controller cannot identify itself. But there’s various other reasons also.
From what I understand lightburn get settings from the little computer on top of the diode laser.
I just like you although Adam stack was helpful they kind of just scratched her head at the situation. When I ask for drivers they didn’t quite understand what I was asking for. Apparently the only drivers that are needed are for an apple computer. The gerbil software that’s where your driver comes from.
Hi, to clarify, I was able to get the machine to connect manually using the driver in lasergrbl and lightburn does connect manually.
I set the dimensions manually to 410x400 and verified the smax matched firmware which was 1000.
I guess what I am looking for is if anyone has any suggestions on mm/s and the laser intensity.
Perhaps I had higher expectations for this machine but so far on some approx 5mm hardwood plywood board (unknown species) even at 11mm/s and 100% its barely cutting into it. I did 40 passes and it was finally showing at least a cut on the back side. Is that normal for a 10w diode laser?
I have some other wood scraps I am going to use one of the test grids on so perhaps I just need some softer wood.
Anyway if anyone has more experience with this machine any tips would be great. thanks.
