1. What is a smart laser engraving machine, and the difference between the ordinary engraving machine?
The main difference comes in "ease of use" and Options. Regular engraving machine tend to have the basic functionality, connect via USB and need a computer software to be operated. Although this is perfectly fine, many times alternative work flow options are necessary.
Our Laser master 3 smart engraving machine solves the problem by offering 5 machines in one. Users can still operate normally from USB, use a Phone App, Upload Gcode Via FTP, and more importantly have a full WebUi interface to change and alter all aspects of the machine. From starting engraving to update and change firmware settings.
2. How does the smart laser engraving machine solve the problem of ease of use?
The more important aspect we tried to address with the OLM3 is the different skill levels users tend to have when using their first Laser Engraver. Also their goals.
Some users want to do simple engravings, without multiple layers and complexity. Up to now these users were forced to learn complex and limited software.
Now users can simply use their phone, take a picture, or write text and start engraving in minutes.
For those that want to use their machine at 100%, all the other options remain available. No compromises required!
3. What is a mobile app with practical value?
Not Every engraving job requires a computer and complex software. Many of our loyal users do on the fly customization for their customers. This can make the Ortur Laser Master 3 a prime portable machine to use on fairs and events. All needed is the Laser Explorer, and an compatible Android or iOS phone. From the simplest to the more complex jobs, all can be done at the touch of a phone screen.
4. What are the improvements in the OLM3 hardware and firmware?
Time evolved, and the power of the integrated chips did too. Currently the OLM3 is powered by the ESP-Pro-v2.4 motherboard. Powered by a ESP32 chip and a lot of Extended I/O, a reinforced power delivery system and the TMC 2209 Silent Stepper drivers for all 3 axis. This is the eleventh generation motherboard released by Ortur Laser Application Technology Laboratory, with a very mature and solid design.
On top of the hardware, our Latest 2.0 firmware support the latest IoT technology, allowing better laser engraving protocol standards, image direct engraving, WebUI, multi-language interface, integrated system detection mode, and many other advanced features.
5. What is the limit-free switch function?
With the latest TMC 2209 stepper driver chips, there is no longer the need of physical limit switches to have consistent and perfect homing operations. On top of that, the operation of the machine will near silent at low speeds and very quiet at maximum speeds.
6. What is two-way communication?
The latest ESP-Pro-v2.4 motherboard is designed to have bi-directional I/O interfaces. Not only the motherboard will talk to the machine components, but these can also communicate and report back to the motherboard on their current state. Soon expansion I/O products will be released to give the machine even the power to control the environment around the OLM3.
7. What are the 5 Ways channels link?
Commonly, laser engravers would use USB Serial port communication. This would require a permanent USB wire connection to a host computer. With the Ortur Laser Master 3, this will be available but be only one of 5 options. The machine will give the ability to engrave from USB, SD card, WebUi, FTP, and App. The machine can connect to your wifi network, or provide itself a WIFI network to be connected to (Access Point mode).
8. What is the next generation of laser engraving protocol standards?
Compared with the older generation of laser engraving protocol standards, it is 5 times more efficient.
9. What is a direct image engraving?
Using AI, the OLM3 Firmware will be able to convert and optimize a image directly sent to the machine and generate automatically gcode without user intervention, cumbersome settings or parameters.
10. What is WebUI?
Your OLM3 will be a machine and a service. A webserver is built in your machine firmware and you will be able to connect to your machine via a standard browser. On your Computer, Chromebook, Laptop, Ipad etc. Any device that has the ability to launch a browser and is connected to your network will be a point of control.
