2 Questions: Pointer light and Not enough extended space error


  • I received my laser last week and have done some test cuts.  It works well.  I have two issues:  The laser pointer light doesn't come on anymore and sometimes when I burn from Lightburn, I get an error for not enough extended space.

    I cannot burn from the 0,0 position.  I would need to move the stock 2 inches to the right.  I'm assuming the extended space is a setting in Lightburn?

     

    Also, is there a firmware update available for the ruida controller?

  • I figured out the pointer.  There is a short in one of the connections.  I will need to strip back the heat wrap to see what it is.

    I also figured out the problem with the laser giving me an extended space error.  It seems I had the speed too high...

    Lastly, should I upgrade the firmware?


  • Good to hear that you figured out the other two issues. Let us know if you need help with the laser pointer. As far as upgrading the firmware, you don't really need to. The only updates you might need to do are software updates.
