Where is my T2 lightning bolt? (Resolved)
« on: March 24, 2017, 02:04:44 PM »
I have my machine running and moving with BCL.

I am not able to get it running with T2.  I notice from other discussions that there is a lightning bolt on the upper right corner of the T2 laser controller screen.  The lightning bolt is not on my screen.  As I press the "Control laser" button on the main screen and T2 goes to the the Controller screen there is a momentary flash image which does show the lightning bolt, then it is gone. 

Any clue as to what I am doing wrong?

In the laser control screen, the connect button is in the upper right hand side. Next to it is the com port selection dropdown and baud rate dropdown.

If you do not have that, it may auto connect. Look above the direction control arrows (surrounding the house) and if you have X and Y coordinates, you should be connected.

If needed you can click disconnect from the Machine menu, or right click that big red stop button to disconnect and allow you to change port etc.

OK, Right click opened up "lightning bolt" on screen so I could set com port and move laser as required.

Next a small project!

Thanks again.
