Showing the laser position

Is there a button that will trigger a low power beam to show where the laser is currently at? For example I’m doing a star wars style Aztec calendar and have found the center but I need a visual of where the laser is currently pointing so I can move the piece into place.

Yes there is. As you are using a diode laser, you need to enable it first. Go to edit, device settings, enable laser fire button. Restart Lightburn. Then when you go to the move tab, there will be another button marked fire, set a low percentage say 3% so you can see the beam (with glasses) but not burn material. Press Fire and you will see a low intensity beam.

To frame with the power enabled, once you have the Laser Fire button configured, hold the Shift key when you click the frame button, and it will set the laser power to the value in the Laser Fire setting.
