I am new to laser engraving. And I am hoping I am doing something wrong or not got it setup properly. I am also a Mac user, and I don’t have a Windows computer. So, I was pleased about finding LightBurn as it has a Mac version. I also found LaserGRBL, the free Windows based product.
I feel the cost of LightBurn is reasonable, so I don’t have an issue with the price. LightBurn looks more polished and better UI etc. So, as a paid product, I expected to get much better results from LightBurn instead of LaserGRBL. However, what I have found is that I am getting much-much better results on LaserGRBL.
I can’t understand this, as I know LightBurn is very popular. So, I am assuming and hoping I am not using it properly. I have found settings harder to figure out on LightBurn. I have been trying to watch the videos, but so far I have been getting frustrated.
I installed Windows on my Mac via Parallels and I have installed LaserGBRL. I am on the 30 day trial of LightBurn. This is not an attack on LightBurn, I am fairly confident it’s me.
I am using the AtomStack A5 20W machine. Any tips or suggestions would be appreciated.
