Newbie here running a SainSmart 3018 Pro with SainSmart 5500 mW diode laser. grbl 1.1f.
I am just wondering if there any known issues with saving a design containing an image using Lightburn’s Save GCode, transferring it to a USB drive and running from the offline controller? Does anyone have experience doing this? Does the output GCode need to be edited or re-formatted in any way?
I haven’t tried yet but interested in knowing what issues may arise. The controller was bundled with the CNC machine and works fine with the test files that were originally loaded onto it. I would like to be able to use my laptop without it being tied to the machine during a longer laser job.
