    I finally got a MKS SBase, and I had it running in a K40... I really suggest using a real smoothieboard. I'm saving up for mine now.

    What issues did you have with the MKS SBase?

    Hi guys. I just received my k40 and sure backup everything you say about the software. I haven't had it long enough to judge much about operational problems, but the flow is horribly convoluted. I'm ordering a MKS SBase ASAP. After 3 years of building 3d printers and progressively larger CNC routers, I think I can handle that part, but don't know if there's anything I need to be aware of with controlling the tube itself and what software to check out.

    I'm really not trying to hijack the thread guys, just tying to follow what you are talking about.

    Thanks, Larry

    Check out Lightburn - it's a fantastic software package written by a guy that specifically supports Chiense laser cutter types, including the K40. I promise you it will make the world of difference to your overall experience using a Chinese laser.
