Show laser position during job

Hey guys,
I have checked the forum, but found no apparent topic/solution for my question.

Is it possible to show the laser position in lightburn during the actual job?

software version: Lightburn 1.1.03
laser: Atomstack X7 Pro

Thanks for the help in advance,


No, not while the job is in process. There are two reasons for this.

  • The time required to query the laser for position and report back to update the display would cause a considerable amount of data to flow back and forth that has nothing to do with the actual running of the job.

  • It is not safe. Providing near real-time display of laser position within LightBurn promotes watching your computer screen and not the laser itself, where fires can be made. :wink:

Thanks for the quick reply!

Sounds appropriate, even though it would be quite nice to have :slight_smile:
