An Update.

It will generate code for Mach3 or Analog, but not for the 3D Printer laser.

PEP6 "Program not responding"

I have had PicLaser for about a year. I have been thinking of upgrading to PEP6. I downloaded the program and installed it.

Thanks for your help in this.

Re: Mach3 control and no continuous jog

I used a rotory sander before lasering. It was done "horizontally". I'll try 45D
I have the lens secured with hot glue.
