View While Engraving?
« on: February 23, 2019, 06:17:15 AM »
Is there a way to view the work as it engraves?  I know you can view before or after, but I can't figure out if I can do so as the laser is in motion.    If not, it's cool.  One of the little things I will obsess over until I know.  haha  ;) 

thanks in advance!!

You look at the engraver  ;D

No you can't watch the simulation "view" while running, the way buffering works it wouldn't be very accurate and also puts excessive load on the CPU which is needed for sending the G-code.
