2.3. PC Control

PC Control Interface:  If you are going to use a serial control interface i.e. not use the SD card on the LCD screen unit to transfer your GCode files then install Smoothie USB Driver and determine COM Port of Ed Laser as per the video below.



LaserWeb4 is the recommended PC control interface software for Ed Laser and is covered in more detail in a following chapter.  However many CNC interfaces will work (same ones as for 3D printers).  Checkout the Smoothieware site for Software options.
