How to use lightburn with mach3 and gecko g540

Hi, I’m new to this forum and to the world of laser cutting. I just recieved an endurance laser and someone suggested to use lightburn to run the laser, so here I am. I was wondering if there is anyone here who could walk me through setting up my laser with lightburn combined with mach 3 and a gecko g540 breakout board

LightBurn will not drive the machine directly, but you could probably use it to save GCode that you could run on Mach3. I’ve been told that Mach3 is not usable for image engraving because the PWM output for the spindle doesn’t change fast enough, but it might be ok for engraving. If you create a GRBL-M3 profile in LightBurn and use the ‘Save GCode’ button in LightBurn you can probably run that GCode on Mach3.
