Hi Everybody....

Postby steve1564 » Sun Dec 18, 2016 5:51 pm

Hello from Clevedon (SW UK)

Ok just bought a LS1260 as part of a liquidation sale - came with 3 spare tubes

Its possible that the drive's have been changed at some point ( now fitted with Leadshine M240'S) and the Z-axis is on 2 additional buttons

I Have no clue how to use it so stand by for some really dumb questions.....

Like: where do you put the dongle thingy? & why wont my machine move ?

Unit powers on but thats it, - if you hit "Datum" it moves to the top RH corner....
The X/Y wont jog on the keypad (just bleeps) and if you press test it displays DLL version different or something like that

I'm going to look stupid so bear with me as its my 1st day at school.

Thanks


Steve

Hi Steve,

It sounds like you will be better off speaking to HPC - they can supply the dongle for laserscript and the latest version. The dongle is used to run Laserscript so plugs into the PC you are using with the laser.

No idea about the Leadshine M240's - if it has been modified so much and does not use Laserscript you may be on your own! ;)

Thanks Dave

I guessed that would be the case - I didn't pay much for the machine so i don't mind throwing a few quid at it.

OK dumb question time :-

1. do i need to connect the water supply for the MC to operate (i know i need to cool the tube but at the mo it wont do anything other than Datum return.
2. re above do i need the PC connected as well?

I have the white WHCX-LASER dongle but not sure what version of laserscript it uses

Moving off topic so i may start a new thread in "Newbie asking dumb questions" forum!!

Ta!

Hi Steve,
PM me you email and I will send a HPC manual which will help.

Yes the tube will not fire without water flowing (it should have a sensor).

You don't need the pc connected - you can download files from Lasercut to the machine via the USB side port - but you need Laserscript (assuming it has not been modded to use another system).

It may not do anything if there is no file loaded ;)
