  • Connect your D1 Pro to your computer via USB cable and turn on the engraver. In the software, click “Connect Device” and select your engraver model.
  • Import images, shapes, text or vectors that you want to engrave or cut into the design space. Use the toolbar options to edit, resize or arrange designs.
  • For engraving, use the sidebar to adjust settings like power, speed, lines per inch, engraving mode etc based on the material you are engraving on.
  • For cutting, increase power to 100% and lower speed. You may need multiple passes to cut all the way through.
  • Do test engraves on scrap materials to dial in the perfect settings. Engraving needs low power but high speed. Cutting needs max power and slower speed.
  • Use the Positioning Mode “Laser Spot” option to see where your laser will engrave or cut on the material. Use the crosshairs to align.
  • Check for software updates periodically as XTool releases improved versions. Keep firmware up to date on the engraver too.
