I invested in the Comgrow Aluminum Lightburn Camera with Mounting Arm, hoping to enhance my engraving endeavors, particularly given my setup with an ATEZR P20 PLUS 20W Laser. Regrettably, the experience has been less than satisfactory for several reasons:
Functionality Issues with M1 Mac Mini and Lightburn: I'm using an M1 Mac mini with the latest OS and the most recent version of Lightburn. The camera consistently failed to work with this setup, despite its advertised compatibility and features. Users with a similar configuration should be wary.
Mounting Bracket Incompatibility with ATEZR P20 PLUS: The mounting bracket was not a fit for my ATEZR P20 PLUS 20W Laser engraver. This forced me to undertake the unanticipated task of drilling holes into the engraver frame to accommodate the arm.
Customer Service: While the Comgrow service team did acknowledge my concerns, I've been left hanging, waiting for the promised resolution.
Considering the product's price, even when purchased on sale, I had high expectations for a seamless integration and functionality. The hurdles I faced, both in terms of hardware compatibility and software functionality, were unexpected and disappointing.
For prospective buyers, especially those with an ATEZR P20 PLUS engraver or using an M1 Mac mini with Lightburn, I'd recommend approaching with caution and conducting thorough research before committing to a purchase.
The delivery was quick and painless, so was the setup.
Assembly was straight forward and components are excellent. It probably took all of 20 minutes to set up. I limited my rating to 4-star only because I haven't yet had the chance to use it.
This does fit XTool D1 Pro
I tested the camera before assembly of the arm and found it didn't work. I took it to my work bench and gave it a once over but nothing stood out. Having experienced many electronic components from China I know there sometimes are problems with assembly. I took a dental tool and pushed all the wires into the JST connectors and resolved the problem.. I went one step further and hot glued the connectors together and the wires. Less chance of the small components from vibrating apart.
As for the arm structure, it goes together rather straight forward and it built very well. I would say it is almost over engineered for the purpose of holding a small camera. Overall, it should perform very well and last a long time.
