I recently purchased a Lightburn license after over a year of struggling with Laserweb. So far I love it! I’m just running into one problem. During large jobs my laser either freezes up (as does Lightburn) or the laser head goes nuts at starts running off into an odd direction. This only happens on large and complex jobs. I’ve tried Lightburn on both Ubuntu Linux and OSX with similar issues.
My hardware is a DIY 700x700 laser bed with an Arduino running GRBL with a Protoneer CNC shield. Everything works perfectly until the machine either locks up or sends the laser head off into the corner of the bed to crash. The Lighburn interface shows as “busy”. The console reports nothing.
I’m way inside boundaries . . . I don’t think that’s the issue.
There are no errors shown in any interface.
Can someone tell me where to start trouble shooting the issue?
