How to add a cnc engraver to light burn

how do i add a cnc engraver to lighttburn and get it to work with z axes

It depends on the cnc engraver.

A couple of folks here are running Newing-Hall engravers - It’s a Pneumatic Z control. I’ve seen a couple of Plasma Cutters and one fellow with a Long Arm Quilting Machine posted here a while back.

LightBurn doesn’t officially support it but it sure seems like folks are encouraged to take their best shot at it.

If you’re looking for full Z control, and full milling machine implementation, then you’ll need tool-path planning and slicing…

I don’t have any indication that it can be done at the present time.
