1. How to connect my laser to computer?

  • Ensure that you've turned the safety key and confirmed there's voltage in the laser (check if the operation indicator light is on).Verify if you've installed the recommended USB port drivers from the manufacturer. Sometimes, during the OS installation, generic drivers are selected, which may not support the functionality of certain connected devices. It's crucial to install the recommended drivers for your computer from the manufacturer's official page.
  • Have you installed the CH340 driver? Regardless of your operating system, ensure you install this driver; otherwise, the laser won't operate within normal parameters. For Windows users, upon installing the LaserGRBL program, you'll gain access to the latest version of this driver.
  • If Windows automatically installed a generic driver for your laser, install the LaserGRBL program, uninstall the driver, and then reinstall it. (Tools => Install CH340 Driver)Double-check that you've selected the correct COM port and confirmed that the Baud Rate is set to 115200.
  • If you're using a Mac computer, you might require a Type-C to USB converter to connect the cable.

2. Where are the air pump and dust fan located?

Normally, lasers do not come with an air pump and dust fan as they are sold separately. If you need them for your laser, you can also find them in our product list.

If you experience a decrease in burning power after connecting the laser to your computer, consider the following:

Check the cleanliness of the lens. It is important to check and clean the lens regularly, as burning can release fumes and combustion byproducts that may adhere to the lens. Use the cloth provided together with isopropyl alcohol or specific products for cleaning photographic lenses. Avoid using cotton swabs as they may scratch the lens due to the hardness of the cotton thread.

Confirm that "Max S Value = 1000" (in LightBurn => Edit => Device Settings) and $30 = 1000 (LaserGRBL => Grbl => Grbl or LightBurn Configurations => Edit => Machine Settings).

3. When I'm cutting wood/plywood, they have very rough edges and I can't get a fine finish, what can I do?

Keep in mind that to get clean cuts (without burning) and make precise cuts you will need to use multiple passes with higher speed and power, approaching maximum but not 100%, along with the use of air assist. This method allows you to cut incremental layers without deeply burning the material. Once calculated, the execution time can be the same or even less than what you would get if you opted for very low speed and high power.

4. The laser burns the project but the cut fails to break through all the material in some places, even though it did before. What could cause this?

  • The materials used may have an inhomogeneous composition. The plywood may have knots or glue in larger quantities inside, which make burning with the laser beam difficult. The more layers the plywood has, the greater the possibility of encountering a knot. Manufacturers must also use lower-quality wood sheets, which are hidden in the inner layers. Plywood for hobby, special plywood for laser; even if it is more expensive, it is of better quality from this point of view. Try to burn the project one more time, without moving the material, to have complete cuts.
  • If there are problems cutting on a larger surface of the material, check if the material was at the same height level with the laser head.
