Yes, you can get it here: http://download.cnet.com/T2Laser/3000-2130_4-76476538.html

I only post release candidates here on the forum but official releases always go up on the various download sites and there's a link on my website too.

Hello Zax,

please i would like to try T2Laser so i've downloaded 1.3t and 1.3w versions.
But i am not able to run installation because of .NET Framework..

"Installation of the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 is not supported on this operating system. Contact your application vendor."

I am running Windows XP, but I've seen mustafa's screenshot in this post working with T2 on XP.

Machine just left customs so Monday i need to be prepared.

Maybe some older version helps for now?

I am very interested in you software, just need to wait for final piece of control board - i mean to see it physicaly :)
My final machine will run Windows 7 Pro, already have hw and licence - there should not be this problem there.

Thank you in advance.
Kind regards.

I do have an XP version (link below), it is not regularly updated as official support for XP has ended.

The latest is v1.3f so missing some newer features:

I would wait until you have the Windows 7 system running and license that for T2Laser.

I've just spent last three hours with my new 6550 Laser engraver and Zax's T2 Laser software and I have to say It's just georgeous! :D so there's no reason for using BenBox Software. T2 Laser is "musthave" for every GRBL Laser owner. And I like the way it feels like using my Mach3 in combination with Cut2D. That big red button makes me smile. :)

Good job Zax.

Does T2Laser support the Smoothieboard firmware?  I am running your app on my led laser and love it, however, I just got a k40 and upgraded it to a smoothieboard.  Do I need to change any configurations to work with smoothieboard or will it work without any mods.   Thx.

The laser controller is for Grbl firmware only, however, the G-code generated should work with any compatible machine.

Does T2laser run on Linux? I was thinking about using a raspberry pi as a dedicated laser machine.

No, it's a Windows desktop app. You can use a cheap Windows 10 tablet, that's what I use for testing.

What are the limitations of a DEMO version of T2Laser? I have not yet received my 65x50 benbox 3w laser from China Inc but thought I might download T2Laser and get used to the interface since I have already decided it is likely the way to go compared to the Benbox software. Can I run T2Laser without a machine attached? If it is a time limited demo I would hate to waste it just perusing the software. I am very experienced with CNC stuff from a router and milling point of view but laser is all new. Hope to use it for custom branding on cotton canvas.

Appreciate the comments
Gerald

The trial is fully functional but G-code saving is disabled and output is limited to 10,000 lines for raster and 1,000 lines for vector. There is a 15 minute time limit per session but you can restart immediately and there is no restrictions on how long you can continue to use it (either sessions or days).

Yes it does work standalone without a laser.

Hi All, I recently purchased the t2laser software. Easy to use, and still powerful. I'm really happy with it!

I only have one problem to sort out, and all is good.

When I open my files, trace and compile the gcode. Then run the gcode in the simulation. The program runs fine.
But when I run the actual code in a live cut. The laser seems to be intermittent, cutting out at certain points and
not completing the cut. I have attached a pic. any help would be appreciated.

That's really odd, some shapes are complete and others have large gaps.

Usually the small gaps are due to machine setup (belts or friction) but in this case I think it's something else. It's like the laser isn't always turning on immediately, which I had never heard of until this week and now you're the second person.

What system do you have? (newer Mana SE and TTL laser)

Yes it's the newer mana se & ttl laser
It's this one in particular if that's any help.

Not sure if it's the start or finish that it's happening, haven't paid close enough attention. I've set the correct tension on the belts, all the plugs are in correctly also. Being brand new, I'm not sure that the cables would have fatigued already as it hasn't had a lot of use yet.
