Will trial work without laser connected?

Hi I will not be buying my k40 laser for a few weeks.
Can I use the trial Lightburn without having a laser connected ?
I thought it would be a good idea to get used to the software whilst waiting to get K40.

You can use lightburn without a laser.

The K40 controller board is not supported by lightburn, so it will not work with your machine without changing the controller to one that is supported by lightburn.

You can search the site for K40 information and how many have upgraded their controllers.

Sorry about that… There is a big advantage using lightburn and one of it’s supported controllers.

Good luck


One thing to be aware of is that LightBurn requires a device be setup for you to use the software. This is because the device specifics determine certain fundamental configurations in LightBurn to function correctly.
