Light burn tells me I am out of bounds every time I use current setting and center position
I am about ready to dump this software
trying to do a 4" square. If I use top left corner then Light burn moves 4" Beyond my square then frames.
If I move my object to the position then Light Burn move an another 4" to the right beyond that.
Either you have a sufficiently different laser than what was used in the video to where the settings are not comparable or possibly you’re using different units for speed and not accounting for the difference. Diode lasers speeds are typically expressed in mm/min. If you’re not already, suggest you switch to that.
This is almost never a fix.
The value curve where payback exceeds learning overhead is quite shallow. Effort is not zero but getting a couple of projects under your belt will quickly bring familiarity. You’ll likely run into the limitations of XCS quite quickly unless you’re doing only very basic things. But of course, if that’s all that you need then no need to go beyond that.
