Differences between stock Silvertail lasercutter with Lasercut53 software and current lasercutter set-up with smoothiware controller and Lightburn software

  • No need to download to the cutter
  • The equivalent of 'Run Box' to get the extent of your cut is the 'Frame' button.
  • Ignore the controls on the cutter itself. The LCD panel currently does nothing.
  • Z axis adjustment is via software on the PC, choose a smallish step size and keep pressing the up/down z axis buttons. Little steps take it easy!
  • Lightburn tutorials
  • If you E-Stop the lasercutter, you'll need to restart Lightburn to re-detect it.
