Notice: The Laserbox basic software DOES NOT support D1 Pro, please download and use xTool Creative Space (XCS) software.

 

With the material pack delivered with xTool D1 Pro, you can create your own works. If you have no idea how to get started, you can use an example project as a beginning.

Let's start with an easier one, to make yourself a phone holder, as shown in the following.

1. What you need

What you need is the assembled xTool D1 Pro, a computer with xTool Creative Space (XCS) installed, the power adapter and cable, the USB cable, a basswood board A5 that can be found in the material pack, and the example project file 1. Phone holder-1.xcs.

2. To protect your desk or floor

To protect your table or floor from being burned or smoked, you can place the aluminum sheet delivered with xTool D1 Pro in the working area on your desk or floor.
