Benbox or EleksMaker Evolution Desktop CAM?

  • Hello
    I have recently bought an A3 5500mw laser engraver . Is T2 software capable of engraving photographs? I have tried some things with Benbox but it is running only like an on-off switch. No gray scale.
    Please inform me.
    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, that's it's primary purpose but it will do a lot more.

  • @Zax
    Thank's a lot for your direct link.
    Let me know the better windows system to work with.
    I get some computers, one win vista, one win seven, one win 10 and one old machine win XP.
    Waiting for your council.

    Windows 7 or 10 are the best options, Vista should work too. I'm not a Win10 fan so I still prefer 7 but do testing on both platforms.

    I do have an XP version of T2Laser but it's not the latest and isn't officially supported since Microsoft no longer provide .net updates.

  • @Zax
    OK , I will soon proceed with the purchase of the software.
    I hope the best...
    Thank you

    You can test performance using the trial, it is free to try for as long as you want but I limit the amount of G-code lines.

    Is there still a 30 minute time limit too that resets when you reopen it?

  • Developer of T2Laser Software

    Yes, there's a per session time out but you can restart immediately and as many times as needed.

  • @Zax Hi, let me know the procedure for the purchase of the soft, is it a donation or a fixed price.

  • Developer of T2Laser Software

    @zorglub_11 The standard license is $39.95 (for single PC) and includes updates for the life of the license. I also have other options, like "dongle" so you can use on multiple PC's ($79.95), and I am always adding new features.

  • @Zax Do you accept Paypal?

  • Developer of T2Laser Software

    @zorglub_11 That is all I accept. The "Buy Now" button is via PayPal.

    What is the life of the license? Does the program disable after a year? Or just updates for a year

  • Developer of T2Laser Software

    The license and updates are valid for the life of your computer (if you purchase the single PC license).

    All licenses come with lifetime updates, so you always get the newest features and best program.

  • @Zax What happens if you have to reinstall Windows. The hardware ID might change. Or is the license only valid for the current installation of Windows?
    Also the register box says "A single-computer license is $39.95 and includes 1 year of updates and e-mail support."

  • Developer of T2Laser Software

    @Martian It is valid unless you replace the motherboard and/or CPU, anything else it's OK. I have always given updates free to everyone, I will update the message (most people don't read it anyway ;) )

  • @Zax hi zax i used your sofware for a trial and my laser didnt burn hot enough to burn wood 3000mw.. i put the settings up to 1000 and the full laser strength on 255 but it seemed to be only pushing half way ? Also everytime i load it now it says do i have a valid code ..dont know whats that about but i cant get it to run now anyway ....

  • Developer of T2Laser Software

    @colety50 Thank you for checking out the trial :thumbsup: .

    If you were using the Eleks firmware it is modified to use 1000 as maximum power so you have to change the LaserMax setting in T2Laser to match. I recommend using my Grbl 1.1e firmware as it is faster (improved motion) and supports more features (real time overrides and dynamic laser power etc.). It uses 255 the same as standard Grbl, incidentally using 1000 has no benefit as the PWM output is 8-bit so Grbl just scales it back to 0-255 anyway.

    I don't know why it is asking for a code now, unless you attempted to enter something in the key code box. If you are interested in purchasing a license, contact me via email and I will help you.

  • @Zax hi zax the controller i have works fine with eleksmaker evo ok so i just asumed that it wood be fine with yours lol i have no idea why its not working now the only thing i can think of is my 10year old was on the pc yesterday but the laser wasnt plugged in .... it seems i cant even buy it now if i wanted to as it doesn't give any chance to register now either going to have a go at him now the little s... he swears he didnt touch it...hmmmm lol ..

  • Developer of T2Laser Software

    @colety50 It's not the controller, you just need to set the software to match the firmware (in this case 1000 for laser max). If you wanted to switch between EleksCAM and T2Laser you could use their firmware as T2Laser supports any version but if you use mine you get more features.

    I can still register your computer, you would just have to buy from my website instead of the software.
