I was working a file with no problems and then lightburn froze in the middle of a save. When I did a force close and restarted the software I have been unable to successfully send any data to the laser to run a cut. It starts as if it’s going to cut the file, then immediately goes back to the home position and kicks the green light back on as if ready. I’m not sure if this is a software issue, laser issue or a combo of the two.
I’m running a Mac on Mohave.
Laser is Thunder Laser nova 35 80W.
I’ve tried restarting both the computer and the laser, unplugging literally all electrical and plugging it back in. The file did work previously so I know it’s not a file issue. I even tried opening a new file and just cutting a circle but that’s a no go.
Usually, I send the file to the laser and let it run from the controller so I can work on other stuff on my laptop. I have tried sending the data both to the laser and cutting directly from the software, both are fails. When I send the file to the laser controller first, if I open the file, it’s just blank
Not sure what else to trouble shoot. Any ideas on what I’m doing wrong?
