@JimWrey I have several softwares installed. I only use T2 to operate my machines though. Personal preference is part of it. Community support is the other part. Zax helped me get my laser going last year. Since then if I have had a question or suggestion I get almost instantaneous (or within a day) feedback from other t2 users or zax. Its best not to software hop. They will all work but they take time to learn. When you feel you have hit the limitations of one software, try another. I tried Lightburn. I liked it but it has no firmware and it cant support rotary axis. Those are 2 things I have to have so I stick with the software that does the things I need and that is T2.
Here is how I set mine up.
The case with a window to see in has a light trap air inlet along the front bottom edge and the exhaust is a separate box with two computer fans that snaps to the back of the case with magnets. The exhaust goes through a 3 inch duct to a dryer vent on the outside wall. pretty quiet overall when closed up. Everything is made of plywood and MDF and has 4 coats of FF88 fireproof paint.
@Chip-Estrada Never mind, I figured it out. I cant explain the residue on the Nano, but I ran it through its paces.... It is fine, The boarded checked out too. The power supply failed!!! I have an extra one, no biggy.
@djen.kuhnel I haven't seen vibration like that on these small machines, especially with belts they are usually smooth. I have had similar issues with a large CNC where the motor vibration caused the bit to chatter and make a rough cut so it's certainly plausible (as they would say on mythbusters).
