If you need to control xTool F1 through LightBurn, download the official release of the LightBurn software. LightBurn is a third-party software, and therefore Makeblock Co., Ltd. shall bear no responsibility for any loss caused by the operation of LightBurn.
The firmware of xTool F1 has been tested in detail by Makeblock Co., Ltd, but incompatibility with the software or hardware may still occur. You can contact our after-sales service for technical support if errors occur due to incompatibility.
Note: Make sure you use the latest version of LightBurn, and your LightBurn is licensed. If the software is of an early version or is a cracked or pirated version, device connection may fail.
Note: Ensure that you start to configure xTool F1 in this way instead of choosing Import Prefs from the menu. If you choose Import Prefs, the original configuration is overridden.
Note: You can also take out the removable baseplate and place the material under the base of xTool F1. For more information about how to place materials, see xTool F1 User Manual.
Note: By default, LightBurn uses the blue light laser for processing.
If you want to use the infrared laser, you can click Console. On the Console panel, click the RED_LASER button, or enter M114S2 in the text box and press Enter. Then, click Start, and xTool F1 will start processing by using the infrared laser.
After the infrared laser processing is complete, LightBurn will automatically switch back to the blue-light laser mode.
