Turn off air assist temporarily


I am running a fairly long job and needed to leave for a while.  I paused the job in Lightburn but the air assist kept running.

I thought that maybe I could send Gcode to turn it off, but the Run Gcode button would not respond with the job in the paused state.

Or to get the software to save the current position so that I can turn off the machine and have it restart from there when I return?

Is there anyway to stop the air assist and then restart it just before I continue the job?




Hi Steve,

At the moment it isn’t possible to pause the air-assist when the job is paused.

We have raised this request with the LightBurn and given them a method to achieve this, but they have yet to give us a date for implementing this.

I will send another request to them.
