K40 whisper @ http://www.scorchworks.com/K40whisperer/k40whisperer.html

I am trying K40 for my C2O laser.
Too much simple-no options to change intensity for laser, resolution options, engrave only horizontally, use SVG files only from inscape (still try to use SVG files from CorelDraw X 7 home edition) but YES!!! it works for Chinese K40 C2O laser.

I could probably adapt T2Laser for the standard board but my CO2 was long since converted after the original board failed. A replacement was too expensive so I used an L6 that I had sitting around and cost under $20.

It would be much easier to install a Grbl based board.

ohhh,so sad to hear....after one year using 0.5W laser and T2, I bought C2O laser and was thought to use T2.

Does it mean for K40 cannot use T2 laser?
Somebody knows where to get drivers for K40 for windows 10?

T2 Engraving / Re: Output size incorrect

Check the export settings.

I have tested drawing in mm and inches and it is correct for both on my system.

You can also see the Corel file you posted and the imported T2Laser sizes match.
With plt file I dont have problem.
I have problem with JPG.
I want make design in Corel draw and after engraved with T2Laser- output size is not like I save it. (on attachment example 10mm*10mm)

PLT format is vector, not raster so you can't open like an image. PLT support was added in v1.2x.

The links are in my signature (below every post), you want to install the latest update:

Thank you, Yes with version v1.2x it is working.
But still I have problem with correct size- for example when I export from Corel draw JPG format square 10mm*10mm, open in T2Laser, there is shows 24mm*24mm

I'm not sure what you are doing wrong, the PLT loaded just fine for me (see attached, this was using your .plt as received).

Are you perhaps using the DXF import and trying to load a PLT format?

You may want to move your design to the page origin in Corel or during export select use plotter origin "Page Center" so T2Laser finds the drawing extents and shifts them to 0,0 but it isn't required. The attached .plt and view screen are after I loaded the Corel file and saved it out with the origin fixed.

I uninstall version 12r and install 12t. I dont have PLT importer- I all time tried open like image. How I can add it?
I fallow instruction and made conversion.

Same results. :( :(

Last test was uploading the exported file to the Autodesk page at "https://a360.autodesk.com/viewer/" after verified that the object is CURVES and exported to r10 version.
The result is OK and attached to a screenshot but this make me crazy  :D

It is work, when you export to r10 version? Can you write please step by step how dod you do?

@lulu

You mention exporting as jpg and then as plt, one is for raster (images to be engraved by scanning) and the other if vector (drawing to be cut or line engraved).

If you are using CorelDraw I would imagine you are trying to do vector, did you follow my CorelDraw export instructions?

Please e-mail an example to me and I will take a look, send the .cdr and .plt output.

There is examples. I fallowed instructions, anyway-invalid format.

Make sure your G-code for is in millimeters not inches for output. You can draw in inches then export in millimeters.

You should see G21(mm) not G20(inch) at the beginning of your code. Output in inches to the system in millimeters equals really oversized objects.

I have G21, I work in millimeters, I export in mm- But program don't show correct size

For example, I made drawing in Corel, export real size to jpg but T2Laser resize it? When I want put Output size, it's shows error- Please report firmware interrupt error. Parameter is not valid.
Export Corel file to PLT file error - Format invalid.
