80w china blue
Smoothie and GRBL-LPC
Machine works fine with Smoothie (*almost) but acceleration is too high and changing it in lightburn 9.07 does nothing. Tried connecting with GRBL-LPC and could home laser and move laser head (that is all I tried) but could not read config files to see/change settings. Tried placing SD card directly into three different computers to edit config numbers but no computer will “see” the SD card.
I suck as this kind of stuff, so be gentle and instruct as if I now little about firmware.
*almost - can not get over 15ma through 80 watt reci laser even on 100% power. Laser actually fires when set to less than 1%. This is a brand new board, brand new tube and brand new power supply. Old board/tube/power supply would not fire unless power was around 6%. I assume this is an issue with the new power supply. Not sure if there will be enough control in the lower power settings to do nice grey scale engraving.
