Longer Laserburn App - Longer B1 connection

Longer B1 adopts a mainboard characterized by wireless technology, microSD card reading, touchscreen display with graphic interface (you can buy it separately) and total interaction with your smartphone through the MKSLaser application by default.

However, recently we released a new and more powerful phone app, Longer Laserburn. This app, available for Android and iOS, allows you to emulate the screen of Longer B1 directly on the screen of your smartphone, and also allows you to create and edit files exactly like Lightburn does on PC. In fact, similar to Lightburn, Laserburn allows you to create and edit image files and vector files, and it is possible to set different parameters of power and speed of cutting and engraving, with the possibility of differentiating the work process in various layers. To simplify, the processing method with Laserburn is very similar to that of lightburn, so it is really easy and intuitive.

In order to be able to use Longer Laserburn, you must first update the firmware of your Longer B1.

NOTE: After the firmware update, MKSLaser App and Web Browser Interface cannot be used anymore, but this firmware will allow you to use our newer Longer LaserBurn App.

Therefore, you need to do the following steps.

1) First, download the following package for Longer B1. This package includes respectively the new firmware and the configuration file to import using LaserGRBL:
