FAQs For New Users / New Electronics
« Last post by Ed on Today at 04:11:02 AM »
I have a 2500MW laser, have been using it with T2 for a few years and have enjoyed the results. I have decided to change the electrons to correct some intermittent problems. (only $19.00  US)

My questio0n is I have T2 on my computer but do I have to load any software/files on the new electronics so it will talk to T2?

Benbox / Benbox Download question
« Last post by Peter Fabricius on May 04, 2022, 07:06:58 PM »
Hi All,
 I have lost my Benbox Software and I cannot find a location to download this from.  My HD crashed, the drive sounds like it has gravel in it and the computer cannot access the drive to start up...
Please help.
Thanks
Peter

I have no idea how to restore the benbox firmware. Overwrote my 6 years ago and have no regrets. You could try one of the host applications that interface to standard GRBL. T2 and Lightburn are available with demo options. LaserGRBL is free.

General Discussion / Restoring Benbox firmware
« Last post by mt_100 on April 17, 2022, 01:04:26 PM »
I was playing around with my laser engraver trying to get it to work to cut some parts and flashed the firmware to a default GRBL one. It still works fine in other applications but now it doesn't work at all in Benbox like it used to, none of the buttons work to control it and it won't do anything.

It is a standard looking Arduino Nano controller from what I know. How do I get the default Benbox firmware back on it? I have tried all the ones in the Benbox application folder and none work.

I just got LightBurn to work on my MacBook. It opens my Illustrator files directly, no more exporting as dxf. For that alone it's worth the $60! and it's so much more intuitive for me as a Mac user. So thanks again for the recommendation :)

LightBurn is a commercial product with a 30 day evaluation free use period. LaserGRBL is opensource which I think is Windows only. Try both.

Also, thanks for the recommendation of LightBurn. I didn't know there was a Mac version, and it looks pretty good so I'll try it out. And that site led me to finding the AtomStack 10w dual laser head, which I have ordered - https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005003727779510.html?spm=a2g0o.store_pc_promotion.promotePruductList_2001992869252.5

Good to hear. Makes me wonder how bad mine is. My 3d printer has a similar non-square problem due to the placement of the belt pulleys in relation to the drive gears. It has a firmware compensation option. BTW - don't see any attached picture.
