Hi so I just bought a new 55w Omtech Laser on ebay and I want to buy a camera for it before it gets here. It has a 400x600 bed size so I got on lightburn to see which one would fit it. Problem is I have no idea how high the camera mount will be from the laser bed. Does anyone else have this specific machine and can tell me what camera you got? Here is the link to the actual page I bought it so you can see if its yours: OMTech 55W 16"x24"40x60cm Ruida CO2 Laser Cutter Engraver Engraving Machine 758232258194 | eBay
Hi thanks for the reply! yes I did go to the camera selection help tab but I dont know what my minimum mounting height is as I havent got the laser yet. Just wondering if anyone on the forum had this laser and could tell me the height from the bed to the camera mount
Thanks for the fast reply! Thats just what I needed! Do you have a camera on yours? From the camera selection help guide it looks like the 5mp-66 (camera sees 600X450mm, mounting height 577mm). I dont know if you have one but does this look right? Again thanks
I have a “not original” on my K40 that I will test at some point on my new machine, otherwise I will probably buy a LightBurn camera if I find a way to import it without too much tax.
By the way, I have checked the height with the correct focus setting it is 620 mm from the workpiece to the bending of the cover screen. So I would argue that the camera should be mounted at about 610mm.
However, I have not yet decided which type to order.
Here in the forum is probably someone with the same machine who has gathered the necessary experience and who would like to share it.
