Frequently Asked Questions

1.Do I have to record all the cutting/engraving parameters for different materials in a paper?

No need. We’ve added a parameter library in the software, once you find out what settings is best for a certain material;you can record it in the parameter library. Next time you cut the same material, you just need to read it from the list.

2.What kind of software and hardware do I need to use Thunder Laser?

You can use your Thunder Laser machine from your Mac, PC, and more to connect with it. You’ll just need a USB-PC Cable or Ethernet Cable.


Utilizing software like LightBurn, RDworks, and Adobe Illustrator, you have the capacity to create designs. Thunder Bolt has the capability to print various file formats including JPG, PNG, SVG, PDF, and more. The process of printing a file is as simple as transmitting it to our Laser Machine, followed by fine-tuning the preview according to your preferences.

3.What files is the software compatible with?
4.Can I take a picture and engrave the image on an object without any hassles?
Yes, you can take a photo by using a camera and then load the photo to the software directly and engrave it.
5.Does machine comes ready to work?
the laser machine is ready to work, the exhaust fan and the air pump and the water pump are included.
