  • Laser issues with hd4

    Good Morning all,

    I've owned my shark for 8 months now. works flawlessly until.... trying to install the laser.

    Test mode: No red light, no laser.
    Run a job and red light comes on laser.
    Set up multiple tools, spindle speeds but still no laser.
    Yes, I looked into the key on the back it appears to be in perfect condition.

    Any Ideas guys?

    Thanks and have fun today!

    Hi h18c,

    Do you have an HD4 or HD3? That would help better diagnose your issue.

        Sorry, I overlooked that!

        Could you post a picture of your controller and hub connected, so I can verify everything is connected correctly?
        Also, what firmware are you running? Go to Apps > About Controller and take a look at what you currently have installed.
        Should be an easy fix with that information.

              Try using the piranha laser post processor. You do have to use a laser post processor to get the laser to turn on

                When picking the laser as the tool the spindle speed is the laser power. That was my problem I Kept putting in a zero so the laser wouldn't turn on. ^Also what toolpath are you using. I had to use the engraving toolpath.
