Connecting to a smoothieboard laser via lightburn


(Hornet) #1

Hi,

When adding a laser, I select the ‘Smoothie’ option, but the only connection available to select is serial/usb. I use laserweb to talk to the laser, and can upload exported gcode files to the control system accessed via the IP, so I’m sure some sort of integration must be possible.

I feel like I must be missing something; is there a reason for the omission, and/or a workaround? Breaking the workflow into a step for manual uploading is a bit frustrating, in an otherwise excellent bit of software.

Many thanks!
