After my eyes got scratchy because of the included glasses, I did some research and found these:

I bought two pairs and am VERY pleased

i cannot confirm (as i do not have that notepad) but if you can run T2, you should be able to run BCL.

Custom Size Frames / Re: Core-XY firmware for Arduino Nano

It is for 3D printer butbis open source. I wonder if we could modify Klipper for this. It is a firmware that controls a printer from a Pi. It interprets on the Pi instead of the nano

What Can Be Cut? / Re: Laser Engraving Stainless Steel With Mustard.

I doubt this will work on glas.
My theory, this probably is just accelerating (due to the temperature of the laser) the process of etching caused by the acid in the mustard.
So if you leave the mustard on the metal for a while youŽd have the same result.

glass, just some acrylic paint would work just fine

I don’t have a place I can laser inside my house and exhaust the smoke. I could for slate but the slate near me now has gone to crap. The Michaels stores near me switched suppliers and I get failed engravings on over half of the product.

Next winter I should be able to keep my lasers going. I plan on heating the garage. I was going to this year but figure am I heated garage will be more incentive to quit smoking, so I chose to not heat it this year. Been doing good on that. Cut my smoking to less than half of what I used to. Figure this winter will help me finish the habit.

I have my 3D printer to get me through the winter.

It gets pretty cold in my garage and starts to affect the belts

Last engraving for the year. Time to store the machines for the winter.

There still are some new people asking questions.
EleksMaker now has a Discord channel and I have been helping some new people there. I point them here and keep pushing T2 and BCL.

most want free and then complain that they dont work (for some reason).
It doesnt help that the EleksCAM dev left EleksMaker and kept the source code. EleksMakerZ is rebuilding the program from scratch and trying to improve it.

Can you look under the Nano (the little board with the usb) and let us know if there is a jumper under it?

My guess is that 3.2 has some dependencies that are 64 bit only or it was compiles for 64 bit only
