Title: At a Loss
Post by: mestguy182 on February 28, 2021, 12:41:53 PM
Hi All,

My Father-in-law recently purchased this engraver:https://universalengraver.com/products/3000mw-blue-cnc-laser-engraving-machine (https://universalengraver.com/products/3000mw-blue-cnc-laser-engraving-machine)

He couldn't figure it out so he asked me to take it and fiddle around with it. The USB connector broke off the Mini Nano board the first time I tried using it so I purchased another board.

So, I have Benbox installed, I have the driver from the manufacturer installed, I get a com port, etc.

However none of the controls work in Benbox so I don't think my computer is properly communicating with the engraver. The light on the Mini Nano board was blinking Red for awhile so I tried updating the firmware to LX-Nano.328p.20150626.hex and now it's a solid green. I know nothing about Arduinos so sorry for being a noob! Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Justin
