First I will introduce myself. My name is Kim. I have had a 40w laser for about a year now that uses LaserCAD v5.95. We just purchased a used 80w Chinese laser that uses LaserCut ~ 5.3 I think. It has a dongle.

On the 80w laser, I am trying to figure out where to put my product on the laser table and line it up with LaserCut 5.3 since the software doesn't seem to have a way to set XY coordinates for my drawing. Any help setting up my software & table would be greatly appreciated.

Background on how I set it up now if I import a jpg. I design in Corel; save it as a jpg; import it into LaserCAD; reset the jpg's size; move jpg to the corner using XY coordinates; place my product in the corner; set up speed & power and engrave.

Thanks in advance,

We figured it out. Apparently I need to pick the object and press the space bar for the coordinate box to open up. Now comes the fun part of trial and error with speeds and power. :)
