We have now started shipping the newest version V3 of the PRO Series Laser machine. Congratulations on your new machine!
The assembly instructions are below and are new. The machine is changing as we make iterations, so if yours doesn’t look exactly like the video, then you have a newer version. We will update it if something significant changes, but now it just might look slightly different but the function is the same.
Check out the assembly video and then the software video to get started. The V3 started shipping 9/8/2023. Machines before this are the V2 instructions.

OLD VERSION OF PRO SERIES
Below you will find instructions in case you still have a older version of the PRO Series machine in a box and have not put it together yet. I know, crazy, but it happens. Or maybe you are a time traveler and brought it back from the past, and now want to put it together. Either way, here it is.
We have been selling a stand alone laser machine for years now, and this is the third iteration of it. We are now introducing the PRO Series laser machine. Some of the new additions include:
- Linear rail Z stage for more accuracy.
- TMC 2208 stepper drivers for efficient and quiet operation.
- Self squaring corners to keep the machine in square.
- Remote E Stop and pause and resume operation at the front of the machine.
- New and improved limit switch design.
- New and improved cable chain design.
- Pre-assembled parts for easy machine assembly.
The assembly instructions come in two parts, the mechanical assembly and the LightBurn software setup. It will get you through the entire machine build to your first project with the machine.
Follow the video instructions here for the mechanical assembly of the J Tech PRO Series laser machine.
While you can use various software packages for the laser machine, we recommend using Lightburn. You can see the video on how to set up and configure the software below. It runs you through the entire setup and completing your first project.
We are working on the “step by step” instructions now. If you need any assistance in setting up the machine, please contact us for help.
