Hello Mods, not sure if this is the best place for this post but please feel free to move it if you need to.
I am now a paid up user of Lightburn. I had put in on trial for a few days and it was impressive in its scope, rational approach and user adjusted parameters. I have been struggling a bit with the software supplied by Snapmaker and I did not realise (as a new user of 3D printing/CNC and laser) that I could use whatever software I wanted to hook up to my machine.
My trial of Lightburn has impressed me with its simplicity, ease of use and comprehensive control systems. On the snapmaker forum, I have posted my baby steps with Lightburn and possibly there will be some other user of Snapmaker who will come and have a look for themselves.
My initial difficulty was that I could not get it to talk to SM1 and I think it was because I had been given the incorrect baud rate for my controller to talk with Lightburn. Once I found the correct rate, the use of Lightburn could not be simpler.
The link to my discussion about my early Lightburn use is here:
Thanks for a great piece of software.
