I need help with my laser
« on: May 26, 2018, 09:21:20 PM »
Hi I am new to this, i purchased a A3 DIY laser engraving machine on ebay,

the problem i'm having, well to me looks like the laser isn't cutting, the high light isn't turning on, it's always on low light.

any suggestions in what i can do to get it to engrave.

Thank you

ROSS

Lasers are wonderful machines..not ONLY  can they cut a finger off BUT  they can also cauterise it at the same time.....

SAFETY -  IS NO ACCIDENT

What software and firmware combination are you using?

It could be as simple as a mismatch in settings, or incorrect for your machine.

Does everything work as expected, X & Y motors, laser on/off etc?

could the low light test laser button be stuck on the on position? I had this happen with the black acrylic cover for the board..
