Looks good, I personally love the laser part of the formaker. As for smoke and odor, you should keep in mind the type of wood you're using might have caused that. Every wood produces different quality engravings, a different smell, and amount of smoke. Smile

How did you setup the height of the laser? The are no explaination hoe to adjust the Z distance. Also when I do my own files it always want to start outside of the laser area...

According to the manual you have to set the height so that the laser head more or less touches the material to be engraved/cut (fit a paper between). As the z-axis height is limited you have to use some kind of box or something else to increase height in case you want to work with thin materials (eg paper).

When creating your own files, run the laser plugin once without any objects inserted. This way a new object is inserted (an arrow and some coordinate information). Move this object to the center of the document. I've described the whole process in one of the other posts in this forum (
