    Last night I disconnected it from the laser and put it on my bench and ran it. I went through a couple videos and set it up as they did and let it run. Once I got the programming in properly so it...

    Thanks, that is much appreciated. I did find this, for troubleshooting purposes. I have a message in to the seller as well that the package was damaged by Fedex, and may need to be replaced. When I...

    Ok, so that answers my one question that it creates it's own heat while running. Thanks.

    I will drop the temp on it and see what happens when I do some cuts. Since I am in the learning process of...

    I have made settings changes for the set points. It all works as far as the controls go, but the actual question I am looking to get answered is how long should it take to cool down. I feel that it...

    Thats what I was afraid of. Seems like all the kicking around by FedEx may have damaged it as it takes a long time to cool down. Thanks guys.
  6. How quickly should a CW-5200 cool down from 25C to 22C?

    I am wondering if mine may have been damaged in transit, FedEx must have dropped kicked it off the roof a few times with how many holes the box had, but the unit appears undamaged, not even a tiny...

    I had to clean and align everything. The mirrors were cloudy, and there was junk in the focusing tube. They also have the focusing lens in upside down with the convex on the bottom instead of the top...

    I picked up an Ebay 60 watt 700x500 Yellow and Black one, like this one. I also got a CW-5200 chiller to keep it cool. Been watching Russ on Youtube with his RDworks training videos, Very informative...

    Sometimes it pays to compare. Was going to get a CW-5000. Found a few for $470. Decided just for the heck of it to look for a CW-5200. Glad I did. Found one for $8 more. So next week I should have a...

    Yes, I know, it's an ambient chiller. Considering that the warmest it will be would be 68*, I was wondering if it would indeed keep the temp of the water @ 68*. I have seen a few people who are...

    I am on the fence now, based on the controllers. What I can't determine, and a few hours of the "search" function has turned up ZILCH!

    I was about to pull the trigger on this one for a few...

    Thanks.

    So, working through this now, and narrowing it down to an 80W 20 x 28 EBAY unit. Interesting how many different sellers have the same product, some are long wait shipping times, others are...

    Been looking at them, and found that the majority of lasers are ll from the same manufacturer under different names and prices for the same package. I found an Epilog 24TT 40 watt. Since it is a...

    Aspire would be my entire budget! :) If I were ever to get to the level where a program like that would be a benefit, then it would make a good addition. For now looks like Cut2D will be top on...

    I gave Cut2D a test drive. In 2 hours I have figured out how to get a copy of one of the parts off the PDF, layer it at the bottom, add layers on top, and then trace the part. Since it is a half...

    Thanks to every one. So far I would say 90% of what I am trying to understand has been accomplished. The other 10% is in operation of the unit, but have to have one to even know, right? :D

    So...

    If a laser comes with a controller that comes with and uses Corelaser, is that easily replaced, or can it work with other software as well? Some lasers I look at don't mention the type of controller,...

    Well, somewhat useful, though it is a 3 year old thread and those versions are hard to find. Since I run windows 10 and Linux, and older than X7 doesn't play nice with Win10, I would want to get at...

    Good point, add it to my list.


    Been looking at Corel Draw, and man, the search function is not helping. Most recent thread is 2 years old! Looking at Student and Home X8, and looks like...

    Don't have one yet, and it will mainly be balsa and plywood for starters, then maybe once I get the hang of the software, other things like engravings. Still working out details of what to get, how...

    Well, the one I would get is $1950 plus shipping, which is $300. So $2250. Over my budget, however, looking further, the next one up, with a 23 x 35 inch cutting area, 80w, is only $2800 shipped. If...

    Thank You, looking at it right now.

    LOL, For ease of use, the GF looks good on paper. I read a lot of reviews and they don't jive with the advert, so I can see how that can cause problems. Pretty much ruled it out, considering one...

    When I was searching I came up with 30+ pages. Gave me a headache. Just trying to narrow down the software side of it. BTW, that link,

    There is a makers space somewhat close, at least according to google, but their website fails with a DB error, so makes me wonder if they are still there. I'll follow up when I get time for that....
