Thread: redsail m500
Tried on 3 different Xp and 2 win 8.1 (we have a few laptops in the house lol). Works on none :(
I had a problem with drivers for a device and from the system screen in control panel I found the hardware_id associated with the device. I copied the value into my browser bar and did a search and it came up with a site for the drivers. I can't remember the exact details of where to find the hardware_id, but it was probably under driver details in the property tab for the yellow "?"-d device. The boards these machine use are often designed with a standard comms protocol.
Hi I've just got one of these redsail lasers and had nothing but problems. I've done a couple of test cuts. I drew a simple square and a circle and set power speed to cut. Each time the shapes are stretched circles are ovals and it only engraves no matter what setting I set they don't cut or produce the correct shape. Any ideas, seems like the machine is misinterpreting the software or something :-(
I've not got mine cutting yet so I'll let you know when I get to that point. Your software works though?? Better than I have at the moment.
Finally connected....struggling with settings now. Seems no matter what i put into the bed size it doesn't like it
Progress is good though !
I've spent the last two days with "communication Error"
Re-install of software fixed it
Conclusion .. PC filled with MDF dust overheated and screwed up.
All cleaned out now with an air compressor ! and working again.
My Laser is on the LAN network, not USB BTW
Does anyone use lasercutengrave software??
Not sure what to input in here for my redsail. When i put 500x300 it doesn't work ? Anyone able to explain these for me?
Or on here
This is the work bed sorry not the one before. In any case I'd like some help understanding them. Also i can't seem to set the origin and whatever numbers i out in for x and y it still overuns into the edges and i have to stop it. Microswitches don't seem to be registering.
