Hello, i am new to lasers, recently got me an xtool d1 10w and trying to get sorted and known with Lightburn, got me a wastegrid i am now trying to engrave into my workspace but it only become like half the size.
From 390x390mm and when i burned it it ended up at 185mm.
Units/grids is set to mm/min Visual Grid spacing 10.00
My device settings and working size shows 432x406 mm
When in workspace in lightburn all measurements look correct when i align the grid in the window and i do not really get what could be wrong so i try ask instead since google make my head hurt now after several hours with no answers =)
Here we go, just went trough Xtool creative space and it says all firmwares are up to date.
But when i am in Laserbox basic and try check firmware it just disconnects, if anything is failing here? Just thought i would mention it incase it has something to do with the problem.
I have not tried do the same work in XCS but i can do it in a jiffy, All objects are half the size
Sorry for shabby pictures but it look clean and crisp irl exept the “test” which i had to much power, it should be 10cm but ended up as 5cm.
Can you take the same grid design and then use File->Save Gcode, then save to a file with .txt extension and then upload here? I want to see if the gcode is being generated incorrectly or if the laser is interpreting incorrectly.
I think it´s sorted, i made a 395x395mm square in Lightburn and it works as intended, something was up with the gridthingy and when i saved it as toolpath it messed up the rest as well so now i believe it will work correcly… Thanks for the awesome support, felt like a beginners mistake but now i can get this thing rolling! xoxo
