CURA works pretty well. You do not always need all the settings available in Repetier. There is also Matter Control. I have barely used that one. I also tried Microsoft 3D Builder, it was confusing to set up. If you have family that are going to use it setup CURA and it remembers the setting from the last print. I do most of my printing in CURA.

>Exactly how many is known only to them!

Well they only have to sell one to equal 4 or 5 kits at their "sale" price!

Way to proprietary for my taste, I like screw around with things!

Oh No's; a tea totaler!

I don't do coffee or tea, I am strictly a sodaholic, with the occasional shake!

Yep, still have a working VCR. A combo VCR/DVD. Still have some movies on tape.

Yeah; you can get a 100W production size machine for their "retail" cost.

Is their software anything special?

"Over price it, and they will come"

I would like to say they are wrong but they probably aren't. Pretty it up and put a ridiculous price on it and some people think they have a better deal. Corporate buyers are really bad about dumping cash on over priced equipment as looks good is good. It works for Makerbot!

A higher price on equipment should mean superior tech support. Is Emblaser capable of that support?

The cutting board is very mobile. And it stops the machine from walking around. It is like 240mm X 180mm and 8mm thick. Made the kit a lot more stable and reduces vibration. A wooden or bamboo cutting board might be better.

Similar to this;

It melts away from the beam, leaving a small trench then does not do much. I have thought about covering it with foil. I never leave it running unattended!

My stepper driver settings are lower than that at X = .27 and Y = .54. And does not have those problems. The PSU could be the problem. Another one we forget is low power to the Nano. I found a lot of issues disappeared when I used a shorter cable!

So I mounted my A5 to a plastic cutting board. I can run the gantry down to the bottom put the PSU in the frame and stack a Tablet in there too. Everything needed except materials is ready to go and has a carry handle! Also gets rid of the worry about burn through to the surface underneath the Laser machine.

Trouble Shooting / Re: LaserAxe firmware
« on: February 08, 2017, 12:01:29 PM »
Not a stupid question.

Some companies firmware is proprietary. That means you cannot get it, from them, to put on a new Nano. And they may not use the same pinouts to their control boards as is used by Benbox/Eleks Maker boards. Make sure you do not get a Sain smart Nano, they have round reset button not rectangular.

It's not bunions, it's hemorrhoids!!! The nurse said I can get my laser back if I promise to stop etching NFW on the diapers.

I think it was more the writing DNR (Do Not Resuscitate) on everyone else chart!

Yep; I have not been doing much (laser) as it has been raining for most of two weeks. And it takes days to get the smoke smell out of the house!
