Firstly, I had my upgraded air assist working on my previous Macbook. So I loaded my previous machine settings on the new Mac and checked to make sure that “Enable air assist output” was " true" and I wrote it back to the controller. I checked the connection to make sure the wires had not come loose from my solenoid. I searched over the threads and one recommendation is to send to the controller then start. I tried the alt (option for mac)+shift+s and that didn’t even move the laser, so I went to the laser itself and hit start and it did not turn on.
Did you do this because it wasn’t working with the new Mac? Reason I ask is Machine Settings are actually stored at the controller so should not have required rewriting. In that case, I’m wondering if you accidentally overwrote the wrong settings.
You can explore backups in File->Load Prefs Backup.
No I think I just loaded it thinking it would be required. I’m pretty sure it was the correct settings regardless. But would any of this matter? The only option that needs to be checked for it to pulse is machine settings > vendor settings > Enable air assist output = true…and it was…
OK so in my opinion this is good news… somewhat. When I go back to my previous Mac, it works as intended. However, I’m not certain what I can do at this point. I’ve tried changing out the Machine settings again, same result.
Sorry, I just thought that was what you were suggesting. Perhaps I need to brush up on my lingo. I always lose things in translation. Preferences does not relate to machine settings then. I actually did look at the Preferences Backup as you suggested, just thought that would all be contained in the file I was referencing. I’ll try to better break down what I’m being told. Again, my apologies.
So I just tried loading the prefs as you suggested and that did not work unfortunately.
What I meant there was prior to the last post I looked at the File->Load Prefs Backup as you had suggested and just decided (wrongly) that it was all related (Prefs - Machine settings) so a backup was going to be no different.
