Total newbie here, looking to learn and contribute where I can.
It looks like there is some promising 3rd party applications featured here, and I certainly
plan to explore those as I move forward.
Just started working with A3 Pro 2500mW purchased from Gearbest. It came with the newer Amana SE controller board.
I could not get the new EleksCAM software linked to by the seller to work. It would not connect to the controller board.
Acquired a copy of Benbox v3.7.99, and got it running with firmware "makeblock-328p-20150606.hex" that was found in the program folder
Had a real rocky start getting Benbox to work, but with a lot of searching through these forums,
along with a lot of trial and error, I now have some consistent, basic functionality..
Here is a link to the machine I have:http://www.gearbest.com/3d-printers-3d-printer-kits/pp_597310.html?wid=21
I paid $50 less than the price now showing..
Right now I'm just experimenting with making some stencils out of card stock, and having some reasonable success.
Now, to the point and why my first post is in this thread.
The " Low light" and "Intensity " controls in the Benbox interface work for me. I have been able to adjust the intensity so it cuts
through my card stock, but doesn't burn the plywood baseboard I'm using.
I'll do my best to answer any questions anyone might have.
