I am having trouble with laserweb on osx as well. Also, it doesn't seem to be developed anymore? I have switched to cnc.js . This requires gcode, but it's actively developed and runs fine. If you want to give it a try, you could use inkscape to create the gcode files.
OK. muchas gracias. Estamos en una época donde todo se parece y todos utilizan los mismos software de diseño por lo cual las soluciones óptimas son las mismas. En fin, me gusta la máquina clon. La que tu señalas es exactamente la que yo había visto.
@labradorian I don't know which software you use, but you can install t2laser in trial mode, check invert x axis and the modification is permanent (of course, until you'll change again). Then, you can return to your software, or try t2laser.
BTW, be sure to use the correct firmware, as needed by your software
Hi there, I'm interested in this (old) topic, I almost have the same issue. The laser worked fine for an entire session of one hour then two days later and few minutes ON it did the same : D4 is flashing but no more laser. When the led is flashing I noticed that the fan of the laser is moving a tiny bit. im on Mac but I tried with a pc also, same result.. I would go for a burnt board but I'm really not sure.. Doesn't someone have some clues on it? thanks!
as far as I can see there is very little room for adjustments and you sure cannot use it on things like pens or smaller dia objects, and can someone tell me how you keep a round goblet from rolling around in two parallel rollers. try compering this one with my design, I'm not saying it is not useful for some jobs but surely you want more versatility then this unit can offer. have a look at my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Wilsons-rotary-laser-add-on-1507680272698876
Good tip with the Nano. Weird that i did't think about that. I actually have a second one.
To be very honest: I really respect your efforts with T2. It must be tons of work and brain squeeze to make such a thing happen. And it has great features. I ran it on my virtual machine last night. But alone that is a pain.
I just am used to mac. And that is not only about the outlook, sounds and non intuitive use of windows. I am also just used that everything works. and that consistantly.
My first experiences with lasers were cutting metal sheets back before 2000 for micro structures. DXF i guess was the the only format we could use.
Then a CO2 System from Universal in a hackerspace i like to go here in Shanghai. These systems are of course bigger and let's call it industrial. But of course i learned to love that those are easy to set up and just run your job.
In one point i got the eleksmaker one. neat thin. but i had really hard time to make all run in a reliable manner.
After checking basically every software out there i turned to Laserweb, running on a windows. And encountered from now and then a blue screen. That has nothing to do with the control software but with windows and most likely also my windows machine. But it never happened to my Mac. Problem for me: if the computer crashed in the middle of an engraving job, then i am doomed.
I engrave personalised etching on items that take a long time to make and sell about a 100$. Blue screens, and other inconveniences that maybe don't bring the engraving in the way i want (size, position) cause financial loss.
So i made good experiences with the combination of laser web and mac.
I also run a mini mill for prototyping with it, and it just does what i need.
The pen plotter is more or less playing around.
But i also wanted to scan, vectorise and plot design sketches and notes that i have handwritten spread on papers and notebooks into one book.
that seems to be more complicated than i thought. But it also of very low importance for me.
Important for me is that i can start my laser within 2 min, when a customer order comes in. That i can't gamble with.
So, no offence! But i rather stay away from windows. Never change a running system, right?!
