Re: laser newbie

Good morning John,
Yes the laser fires, but even if I set the power to 0 it still fires and cuts.
In fact, I currently have the laser about 3 inches above the focal point.
Doesn't look like its on low power at all.

Re: laser newbie

Good morning John,
How do I find that out?
Bought my X carve in late 2016 and it has the X controller.

Pic laser can only import pictures?
It cannot import vector files? like from Vectric software?
I read the paragraph about editing a picture to achieve the correct file extension, but it will not do it for me.
