Update: 2023-08-17

This guide will provide you with clear, step-by-step instructions on how to use the Mintion lasercam to track images in LightBurn.

Step 1: Calibration and Alignment

For first-time users, you need to complete the camera calibration and alignment. If you haven't done this yet, please refer to our detailed guides on camera calibration and alignment.

Step 2: Updating the Overlay

Assuming you have finished focusing and aligning the camera, place the image you want to track into the laser engraver. Then, click 'Update Overlay' to update the image captured by the laser camera to LightBurn.

Step 3: Image Tracing

Next, click 'Trace'. Adjust the 'Cutoff' and 'Threshold' values to optimize the image capture, and then click 'OK'.

Step 4: Adjusting the Traced Content

Now, adjust the content of the traced image by deleting any unnecessary content.

Step 5: Update Overlay with New Material

Remove the image item tracked in Step 2. For instance, if you're tracking a paper image, remove this paper from the laser engraver. Then, insert the material you want to engrave or cut, such as a wooden board. Click 'Update Overlay' again to refresh the image.

Step 6: Position the Traced Image

Move and place the image obtained in Step 4 onto the item you want to engrave or cut. This should be done according to the 'Update Overlay' image from Step 5.

Step 7: Engraving/Cutting

Set the correct engraving or cutting parameters, then start the engraving or cutting process. When the task is completed, congratulations! You have successfully transferred the pattern to another material.
