I’ve had my OG Snapmaker as an original kickstarter supporter. I’ve only used it as a 3D printer until now. The laser and CNC heads have been safely hidden away in a box for years.
I’m finally trying to laser etch something and I can’t get it to work. My friend who also has an OG Snapmaker and has laser etched a ton of stuff on his machine has also tried to help.
I have it in an enclosure however I have unplugged the enclosure cable as well as the heated bed cable
My laser turns on, I can focus and set the origin of my laser.
He’s created a .NC file for me to etch
I select the file and start the etch and nothing happens. I’m not sure why it’s not starting the laser and or start printing the program.
Any help would be greatly appreciate.
