I did find the following post that contained somewhat of an answer to my question:
but not completely. I’m on a Mac and both lasers have Ruida controllers and are connected via ethernet… could be a third one too if you can figure out how to work a Trotec so I can dump Job Control
In Lightburn I have “Machine 1” and “Machine 2” added and they work.
I made two copies of Lightburn: “Lightburn machine 1” and Lightburn machine 2". Both instances started and I thought I could have a “Machine 1” connected to “Lightburn machine 1” and 2 to the other one, but no.
It’s only on the first Lightburn that I start that I can switch device (I see “Ready” when ever I switch device). The second Lightburn says “Disconnected” on which ever device I choose. Is there a way to have one instance of the program connected to its own laser?
I know it doesn’t exist now. But would it be possible to have a tabs inside Lightburn for each of your devices?
I haven’t really come up with a smooth workflow yet for multiple lasers. How are you guys doing it?
