Re: Does anyone have the latest lasercad manual?

Thanks Marco,
in the mean time is there any manual for the lasercad software (new or old) available from your site at this time? I am not able to find it yet..

lasercad persistent settings per color

Is it possible to get lasercad (version 7.86.1 here) to remember the settings for each color? Or is there a preset table of settings per RGB value that I can reference? I have some pw5 files saved out from lasercad and since then I've had to reinstall lasercad from scratch and the files I've saved d...

Re: Does anyone have the latest lasercad manual?

I am also wondering about this. I've just resurrected my lasercutting and the updated software looks good but options seem different.
"grade engrave" for example is nowhere to be found.

Any advice Marco?

Thanks

Re: What is the difference between AWC-608B / X7 DSP / R5 DS

Marco, The reason we want "grade engrave" to work for rubber stamps is that if there are fine line details in a drawing (in text, for example, there are lots of fine lines) when you make a stamp, the lines have only the support directly below the line. Adding ramps (grades) to the sides of...

Re: What is the difference between AWC-608B / X7 DSP / R5 DS

Hi All - thanks for this great thread analyzing the two controllers. I have the AWC608 and am beginning to embark on a new build and will naturally want the most feature rich controller! I am leaning towards the X7 because Marco is our direct support for it and he has been very helpful over the past...

Re: Anybody see a problem with this wiring change (DSP -> PS

yaddatrance, is this allowing you to make grayscale engravings of bitmaps (like jpg files?) ?

if so, what are some example settings in lasercad that you are using and if you have time could you post a photo or two?

Thanks for your work on this!

Re: Can any one help me with ethernet connection

I am curious: what is the problem with the USB connection? I would agree with Marco in that your networking would work better with a hub or switch between the dsp and your computer. You may be right about not needing a crossover cable, but in case you're wrong, a switch can be had for under $20 http...

Re: laser power reduced

I am not sure about your first question: this was the original tube, and I replaced the DSP so maybe the answer is "DSP upgrade" second I don't know how to check the PSU outputs do you have advice for me on that? It is a 40watt co2 tube. nothing changed as far as I can tell except that the...

laser power reduced

I have a laser tube from another supplier - buildyourcnc.com - but the dsp and power supply are from lightobject. I also have the milliwatt gauge / readout from lightobject. I am no longer able to achieve 18mw and the power of the laser seems reduced. it is no longer able to reliably cut 1/8 inch pl...

Re: Can't find Coreldraw/Autocad

unrealworld: the installer is not flexible at all. It is looking for the specific folder path that it expects. I think you might try creating the same folder structure under c:\program files that corel installed in on your other driver letter. Then the installer should find that (although I think it...

Re: Rubber Stamp Engraving Settings

yes. me too. The ability to make rubber stamps was a key point in convincing my wife that this was a "good idea" However, as in my above posts, it is still possible to make a relatively successful stamp as long as you consider the widths of the lines and plan for adding enough thickness to...

Re: Rubber Stamp Engraving Settings

Having re-read some older posts from Marco, I tried today to make a 'return address' stamp . Being all text, I thought it a good opportunity to try "grade engrave" again Unfortunately even with the job being nothing but text, grade engrave setting has absolutely no noticeable effect. I tri...

Re: DSP does not run file ! Unable to use laser cutter !

Thanks Axeman,

I guess I fixed it.
Although I tried shutting down lasercad and reopening it, I tried rebooting and nothing helped until I drew a square in lasercad itself, that ran (yay) and then uploaded a file (download) to the laser and now its working

Fixed!
