  • test fire for positioning the 7w Laser

    Can anyone assist me in figuring out how to test fire for position? I am currently using the laser on a Piranha FX. with V-carve 9.5 T.I.A.

    I'm not near my CNC at the moment, so this is from memory. If you still can't get it, reply and I'll check again when I get home tonight.

    You'll want to position the laser to the proper location and height according to the documentation (mine is 0.1"). Then when the laser module is on and the key is turned, use the pendant to choose the other options (on the right side of the screen). Within that list is an option for the Laser. Within this is a Test option. There might be a couple of other questions after that. Be sure to have your safety glasses on. It will then fire up and make a small burn dot.

    Hope that helps. Sorry it's a bit vague.

    Now if I can just get some quality settings figured out... If you find some good burn settings, please pass them along.
