Thanks for your posts! I am going to try laserweb3 on mint now that I just loaded one up. I did try in a tpi3 and the CPU lagged.

I have not tried T2L in wine but did try running RobotLaser. Either I messed up or it just didn't work.

I would love to see a python app or these engravers. It would be nice to have a OS agnostic program. If anybody decides to do one, I would love to be involved. Not a pro here, but always eager to learn.

Hey all,

I have a bunch of extra computers just laying around at my house with Linux on them. Does anyone know if these boards will work with LinuxCNC or any software that is based in Linux?

Any chance BCL, T2L or RobotLaser will ever go Linux compatible? Maybe Python version........?

Just and add on to the question. Do you offer license transfers for a modest fee? Say, to upgrade a computer one "pudding emoji's" the bed?

Thank you all for the replies. As a newbie into the laser world and more-so a hobbyist for now, I am still learning what I can and cannot do.

I did find a cool site with some info similar to what is mentioned in some of the other posts

Thanks Zax and beikeland.

Just trying to find out what options are available and recommended.

Everything I have seen about 10w lasers are they are overpowered 6w lasers. Anybody have any experience with a 6w to mark metal? Is there a way to do it by applying something like paint as a medium? If so, get a good exhaust.

Hey all. Got a quick question. I have an A5 engraver with a 2W diode laser. It has a L1 clone board. I am waiting on delivery to my L7 board (soooooon.....).

With the L7 setup, can I use a CO2 laser or fiber laser module? I am assuming I am missing something here... Any help is appreciated.

I would eventually like to etch metal, so it seems a CO2 laser is needed.

Thanks

So, I used the sketch feature in T2L. Can't wait until I get my new board and my computer issue fixed so I can get the full version of T2L. The time limit is a bit of a hinderance  :P

Here is the end result. My daughter likes it, so its a winner!!!

Awesome. Got that working. Now when I go to laser it, no matter what speed I set it at, it only goes one speed. I set it at 200 and it is going at something like 1000-1500.

That could be because I am using the benbox firmware. None of the firmwares included with T2L work with my board. Man, I can't wait till my L7 comes.

Possibly. I I made that in MS Word and made a PDF out of it.

I made one in Sketch. Is there a way to rotate the text? I need to make it about 300mm long and my engraver is not that wide, but it is long enough.

So I tested out the CLI version of Convert2DXF. It works well except for one thing. Attached is the PDF file I am trying to convert as well as a snapshot of the error I get from T2L.

Any ideas? What am I doing wrong?

So....you're saying I am a blockhead.............. ;D

Wow. That is an easy fix. Use the correct app. I will try that when I get back to my laser computer.

That's why I said donations. He is giving the software away for free, people just should be given the option to donate for his hard work. Once I get my laser computer OS issue handled and when my new L7 controller board arrives, I will most definitely be buying T2L.

Thanks!
