Thunder Laser Air Assist Control

Works with LightBurn and RDworks

BE PREPARED TO ADJUST THE VOLUME . THE FANS ARE FAIRLY LOUD IN THE VIDEO.

Here is a test of Thunder Laser’s Air Assist Control using Lightburn. There are 2 modes for air assist. Cut and Engrave. The 2 air solenoids are controlled with the smart board. There are also 2 needle valves mounted on the front left panel so you can adjust the flow for each mode  as well as momentary push buttons to test the flow. When you press a button the corresponding stage activates for 10 seconds.

So now you can define high (Cut) or low (Engrave) air assist by toggling the air assist function in each layer. With air OFF you get the engrave mode automatically. So for engraving just toggle air assist off in the cut settings in lightburn. For cutting, toggle air assist ON and it will choose the cut air stage.

This also works in RDWorks and, depending on the version, it may offer ON and OFF in the drop down or CUT and ENGRAVE in the current version (this is specific to the Thunder Laser version of RDWorks). If you use a generic version of RDWorks it will function this way as well. All you need to remember when applying layer settings is that air assist OFF will activate the Engrave stage and air assist ON will activate the Cut stage. This means that one or the other air control stages will always be active so there will not be an instance where you get no air assist at all.
