Good afternoon. I’m a newbie here and I’m excited to see what I can do with my machine. I’ve purchased the Sainsmart LE5040 Laser Engraver.
I’ve downloaded Lightburn and am unable to get my laser to work. I researched different forums and believe I have all my settings correct. Heres where I am if anyone can help:
At first the laser would only come on but would not burn. It will run the pattern but nothing burns. Now, it will just burn just a tiny, tiny line at the start (see picture) and then quit burning. It will continue on making the pattern.
Focusing: I think I’ve got my focus right but the twisting dial does seem a little loose.
Thanks in advance for any help.
