I was able to install the Cohesion 3D Laser Board, and attempted to set it up on Lightburn I went and added device, and it found it (Smoothie) and the COM port but when I look at the device settings afterwards after I load an image, it shows “disconnected” and I cannot home the device or run the device.
When hit the “play” key, the program pops up message
'there was a problem sending data to the laser. The device may be busy or paused."
I know this might be a novice question and I must be missing a step somewhere. How can I make sure that the device is ready, or what do I need to check? Does the switch to activate the water pump need to be on? I have a separate outlet for that, and it is not on the laser.
Thanks in advance.
