    Default question about software and laser

    hello everyone!
    i have ishow laser software I connected the laser with the adapter.
    the problem is that the laser does not function properly with the software.
    example: a straight line comes out crooked. Rounding out crooked. (If I use standalone SD card that works great!)
    hope that the images will illustrate the problem.

    I have not been able to produce better results with the ISHOW software. That is why i only kept the ILDA library (Images and animations) from the original ISHOW installation, and moved on to purchase Spaghetti. It is far more easy to use, and gives you a far better image quality with the ISHOW DAK.

    You can find the software here: http://www.hingednewt.com/Pages/Spaghetti.aspx

    There are some ready made shows for Spaghetti here at the PL FTP, that gives an idea of what can be done with this software.

    The simple truth is yes. I like spaghetti!
    (Certainly did not expect to write just that on a forum regarding lasers)

    100 percent you will never have, but Spaghetti does have some decent optimisation tools.

    Yes, but if I'm working with the laser standalone with a memory card Its works great! .. How can I get to this level?

    Yes, like Datsurb said start with spaghetti, its optimization and output quality is excellent. If you feel you outgrow it look at LSX or Pangolin software, cost goes up in the order I mentioned the software packages.
    I don't know how your projector optimizes the projection from its memory card, I can only tell you I have both spaghetti and LSX and am very pleased with both.
    OR, if you're confident with building electronics, you can look at building a correction amp and wiring to a sound card to create a sound card DAC. Then you can also try LaserBoy, which is also popular but I don't have any experience with LaserBoy.

    You can just download LaserBoy and use it to optimise files for the SD card. Or convert dxf animations from Blender.
