I’m a really new user with a C3D board in a K40 machine.
I am really liking LightBurn and have no doubt it is a keeper. Just need a while to really explore all of the
I want to limit any reference to the old software and controller I was using, because I dont want to suggest LightBurn is missing a feature that the old crud provided.
I have a lot to learn as it really puts everything in one place compared to my previous workflow.
One thing I was able to do with the old cutting software was engrave a preview frame on the target material with one click on a " Preview " button in the interface.
While I don’t see anything similar in the LightBurn interface, can someone verify if I have this right?
I looks like I need to create a frame on a separate layer then send this to the laser to see precisely where my design will appear in my material before cutting, but I do not want to cut out the frame.
FWIW, my need to do this because my cutting platform is not fixed inside the machine and I move it around.
I cut out very small pieces on various wood veneers, and I want to be sure of positioning to minimize material waste.
Let me know if I have missed an easier way to do this…
