Very new user here, disclaimer that the machine in question belongs to a family member and not me so I have almost no idea how the software and hardware works besides the extreme baby basics, I’m just troubleshooting it because I have a lot more time to do so during the day and I’m more tech-savvy (at least I hope). I saw another post on this forum from April last year that seemed similar but the answer didn’t help me at all. I apologize if this seems like a dumb question or I posted this in the wrong category.
The problem I’m having is that when the $32 setting inside Machine Settings is set to 1 (activated, green check box), the laser will do a “dry run” of the project without actually firing the laser and engraving anything. When it’s set to 0 (deactivated, brown check box), paradoxically it will fire but do so VERY slowly, to the point where a 10 minute project could take hours. From my research, this seems to be because the laser is having to stop every time it needs to change power, when it should be able to constantly stay on. Here are links to videos of these examples:
Here’s a readout of the GRBL settings according to LightBurn
