Boss Controller

I’m looking at a Boss laser. Is their controllers capatable with LightBurn? Looks like a Ruida controller in the picture but different color. This would be a deal breaker. Not giving you my LightBurn

Guess I posted this in the wrong Category

Boss is a supported laser, as they do use Ruida controllers. In the DSP install screens, you have a choice of choosing various models of Boss lasers.

As it turns out, Boss used Ruida in some models and the AWC in others (most recently it seems to be the larger ones with the open bed). Not a huge concern as LightBurn supports both, but worth noting.


Their LS series uses “LaserWorks” which is RDWorks, and the controller is a rebranded Ruida 6442, and is well supported by LightBurn. The HP series for metal cutting uses LaserCAD, and is an AWC 708 controller, also supported by LightBurn.
