Piranha Laser Issues

Postby shepkyle » Wed Dec 28, 2016 5:12 pm

I just recently purchased the laser attachment for the Piranha XL and can't seem to get it to operate. I downloaded the post processor and save the design file as a .tap but when I load the file into my machine the laser never comes on. I've tried uninstalling the post processor and reinstalling it. I've also connected and reconnected the laser attachment I don't know how many times. Any help getting my laser to work is much appreciated.

Yeah I've went through those guides several times trying to figure out if there was a setup I'm not doing correctly and I can't see anything that hasn't been done.

Probably best to ask NextWave either directly or on their forum. It's a very specific thing to your particular machine rather than a general issue that other Vectric users would be able to offer much help with.
