Ok, im new too LightBurn. but I like it already.
I bought and Xtools S1 and used there software. It does an ok job
but for what I would love to do, its not suitable. So LightBurn is the best alternative I think. But I have one problem (for now) and couldn’t find the answer.
My project contains 3 layers.
a engraving lager, another engraving layer
en a cut layer that is a square in the software, but it constantly cuts it as a triangle ruining my project.
When turning of the other 2 layers that engrave, it actually does cut a square shape.
I looked in the software, I found cut optimisation settings.
I already tried remove overlapping lines, on.
I tried turning the whole thing off. but I can’t seem to figure it out.
There’s nothing in the g-code that would indicate a diagonal cut. This basically confirms that the machine is interpreting the g-code incorrectly. You can see this by importing the g-code back into LightBurn.
Perhaps as a temporary workaround run the image engraving and the cut in separate jobs.
Did you check to see if there was a firmware upgrade available in XCS?
When you first connect to the xTool S1 with LightBurn, you should be offered a firmware number from your xTool S1. It will appear in the Console window in LightBurn. Please select that firmware number right in the Console window copy it, and paste it into a reply here.
With LightBurn running, your file open and ready to send to the laser, click File then click Save GCode. Save that file somewhere convenient.
You should be able to drag and drop the file into the reply box to attach it.
Either it’s us, the lbdev file that was supplied by xTool, or something non-standard in the xTool S1.
