Honestly I have no idea what laser I have. I got it as a gift and the instruction booklet that came with it is all in Chinese. The only thing I can find on the booklet that may be helpful is “Laser engraving machine 3550,6550,3550,100100”
I’ve tried to connect my device in the software by scanning since I don’t have the info to do it manually and the software can’t find my device. Does anyone have any suggesstions, tips, or advice? I would really like to start using my laser.
That’s an Arduino nano with some stepstick motor drivers - it looks like the controller you get with the Eleksmaker lasers. You’d need to figure out what firmware it’s running - if it connects with GRBL-M3, the console should say something when it connects. If it doesn’t, it’s likely a custom firmware that’s not supported by LightBurn.
It appears I have the same or similar machine and issue.
I have been running it successfully with T2Laser which is where the 1.1e firmware came from.
I recall my first startup before 1.1e would fire the laser. This problem was resolved once the firmware was upgraded.
Am I correct in assuming that there is no solution to this in order to use Lightburn?
Do you have firmware available for these machines?
I really like the features of Lightburn and would be disappointed if I’m unable to use it.
