Buying a Galvo fiber laser to use with my DSP CO2 laser

I apologize if this question has already been asked and answered (I did a quick search and did not see it)

I am currently using LB 1.4 with my CO2 laser and now I am buying a Galvo Fiber laser. I know that I will need to purchase the Galvo license for LB. My question is will I need to run two versions of LB on my computer or can I run both lasers from a single instance of LB?

I switch between the little diode, the China Blue co2 and the fiber in a single instance of Lightburn… it’s in the device settings that lets you determine specific hardware type requirements…

Make sense?

When you have questions, sing out… none of us got these out of the box and working without questions…

Good luck, I’m sure you’ll have great fun



By design, LightBurn allows one to define (step 1) multiple ‘Devices’ or device profiles and select (step 2) the one you are keen to work with for a given job. All from a single instance of LightBurn. :slight_smile:
