Feeling a little overwelmed

Ok I just got my unit and it is still in the box. I have no idea where to begin. I don’t know the software yet. I guess I’m looking for some suggestions. I do live in the Nashville area and would love to come see how someone else runs the software. My next day off is Sunday so I’m going to start unboxing and putting it together then. Any info of web links would be appreciated.

I would follow the instructions and watch each video on the Langmuir site at this link:

Keep an eye on the decals on the parts in the videos and orient your pieces in the same way so you don’t get the sides mixed up. Otherwise it’s easy to get the torch mount arm hole or the control box on the wrong side.

Just take your time and double check everything. You’ll be good.

And if you come across a guy named jamesdhatch listen to his advice.


LOL. Only because I make all the mistakes first and remember them :grin:

I was the 5th of 6 kids. Used to take apart and fix everything I could (or I wouldn’t have things because by the time something got handed down to me it was pretty used up :slightly_smiling_face:). Then I got into software and it seems to be the way my head works. But I’m a mechanic more than an artist.


ORRR You could have said. O i teach things of this sort … So modest lol.

I do some if that too :slight_smile:️ I teach CAD/CAM and operations for CNC & lasers for our local Makerspace.

What I love about all of this is I can actually start with a sheet of material and make something come out of it. The first time is magical. It keeps on being “wicked cool”. Beats the stuffing out of designing & developing software for psychic satisfaction any day if the week.

Thanks… I will definetely be checking that out.

Ditto on what jamesdhatch said… watch the videos on putting the machine together. I felt the same at first…, but its really not to bad to put together. You will be getting familiar with the “REWIND” button on You Tube like I did. This is an awesome forum if you need to ask questions…like I have. GOOD LUCK!!

If you need a little help. I’m between Nashville and Chattanooga. Let me know.

Thanks Finter. I will give everything a whirl and go from there.

I live about 1.5 hours north of Nashville in KY. message me if it gets to daunting you could ride up and see mine or I could come down.

don’t feel overwhelmed, I had no clue what I was doing other than assembling because it just came naturally I guess. I had no idea what I was doing when it came to the software stuff but James Hatch helped me tremendously. I just now got comfortable with creating tool paths and cutting circles and rectangles. the sad part about this is I was in batch one. if you need any help with software I highly recommend asking james hes awesome and dumbs it down for guys like me.
