Re: FIRE in the machine!

Hi - One cable is the connection for the cabinet light. If plugging this has caused the fuse to blow, then you probably require a replacement light fitting. The other cable, as you have stated, is for the magnetic sensor for the main lid. That is normally fastened to the roof of the cabinet, but it ...

Re: Engraving Autocad Annotation Text

Try a speed other than 5. If the tiny lines are considered separate, individual lines - i.e. each has there own start point - try using Tools -> Unite lines to merge them into one path. I would normally do text as an engraving, rather than a kiss cut, but it might depend on the font. A single-line f...

Above the Download button in the Lasercut program, there is a checkbox labelled 'Immediate'. Tick the box before you send your file to the laser and it will run the file from wherever you position the laser head.

Re: How to close lines?

In Lasercut, Tools > Unite lines at Tolerance 0.01 will usually close any gaps that should not be there, but as Dave says, this is not really for joining lines, it is used when what should be one line is broken into several. If you are trying to engrave a line though, you would need to set it to Cut...
