I've changed the deployment of T2Laser to online instead of a local folder.

So once you install v1.4d (link below) you will be notified of updates and can automatically install them (without uninstalling, losing your settings or profiles :D ).

You can install from here: https://t2laser.blob.core.windows.net/install/publish.htm

Windows may give you some warnings about it being an untrusted application or block the download but you should be able to continue and allow the install. If not, go to the download thread in my signature and install from there.

If you have questions or comments please let me know, this is new to me and I may need to tweak settings.

A big thank you to nottingham82 for his help in testing the web deployment and upgrade feature works.

I'm sure there will be growing pains with this method but in the long term I think it's a better solution.

Hi folks, the Win7 laptop I use for T2laser is offline most of the time (wifi doesn't make it to the basement). Any issues installing via the new method while online and then taking it off for the duration? Is there an easy way to determine when the year license is up?

Thanks, Maury

No issues being offline, you won't get the automatic notification of updates of course but could always take it up to a WiFi signal and start T2Laser when you want an update.

I was planning to make an official announcement for this, T2Laser now includes FREE minor updates for the life of the licence. So any updates after the decimal point are included at no charge, version 2.0 would be a new major version and require an upgrade license.

Hey Zax. I have another suggestion if you open to it. Honestly, I do t know how hard it would be. I am doing a 2hr raster as I type this.

It would be really cool to have a real time simulation of where the engraving process is on the computer screen. Pretty much your simulator that shows where the gcode is at. The percentage and time to completion is great, but I notice I keep lifting my enclosure up to see where it's at.

send zax a private message with your circumstances and he will sort it out for you.  I think he is traveling though so dont expect a response today.

just noticed you cant do vertical and horizontal hatches.  You can do vert or horiz or crosshatched which is at an angle.  Any thought of doing an adjustable angle on the cross hatch so you could make it vert/horiz at the same time?

I know you think we dont read the manual but I totally did right before making the video to be sure I wasn't missing something and I completely missed the right click part!  I had thought you had thrown this wasteboard idea out there before so i was surprised when I couldnt figure out the 1 step solution.

I don't know if it's in the manual but if not just call it a hidden feature  ;D
