DOWNLOADING LIGHTBURN SOFTWARE:

If you're already a client, click the link below to get the latest version - your existing license will unlock it. If you're new to LightBURN we want to be sure that LightBurn will work for you, so to give you a chance to really use it, we offer a 30-day trial period, with no restrictions. Design and create some things on us. Have fun - this is the full deal, no watermarks, no limits.

If you decide to buy it, we'll send you a license key that unlocks it permanently, allows installation on one machine, and gives you access to free updates for a year.  You can read how the license works below if you have questions. 

Please note that at this time, the MacOS version of LightBurn is not digitally signed. You will need to tell OSX that you trust the application and wish to run it anyway.

The links below will let you download the most up to date versions of LightBurn v1.0.00:

HERE'S HOW THE LIGHTBURN™ SOFTWARE LICENSE WORKS:

You only have to pay once.   The software will work forever as long as you have your license key. The license key lets you use the software on up to 2 computers at once.  It can be easily moved if you get a new computer.  If you need more seats, or a floating license setup, contact us for pricing and details.

The license key has an expiry date - a year from when you bought it. When it expires, it's still valid, you just don't get updates any more. If you download a version of the software released after your license expires, it won't work.

If you choose to renew your license to receive another year of software updates, the price is $30. 

Please note that the single computer limit doesn't mean you can only install the software once - the license system in LightBurn keeps track of the computer you have the key installed on. If you get a new computer and want to move the license to it, just deactivate the old computer first.  In LightBurn, go to Help > License Management, and click the Deactivate button. That will remove the old computer from your license, and then you can install the license on the new machine.  If you ever have a hard disk fail, or sell a computer, we can remove the computer from the license for you, as long as we have your license key.

There is a 30 day free trial with no restrictions on the software. The trial version will work with all supported hardware.

LightBurn software purchased via CTR (i.e. with the purchase of a new laser machine system) will include all published updates and bug fixes for a year. After that first year, the software will keep working as is, but won't be eligible for further updates. If you want additional updates beyond the first year, a small renewal fee will get you another year - please contact CTR for pricing information.
Regardless of whether you decide to update or not, the version you have will keep working forever.

You can install the product on up to two machines (computers or compatible devices) at a time, so people with Mac/PC setups, or a PC in the house and one in the shop will be covered. Licenses can be transferred between machines if you get a new PC.

Installing LightBurn

Minimum computer system requirements:

LightBurn will run on Windows 7.0 or later, 32 or 64 bit, MacOS 10.11 or later, or 64 bit Linux (Ubuntu 16+ or Fedora 28+, anything else may not work as intended).

LightBurn does not require a powerful computer for most work, though if your designs contain a lot of images, more memory is helpful., and a faster computer will make it easier to work with large images or complex vector graphics.

Choose your operating system:


Windows Installation

Launch the installer by double-clicking it. Windows may ask if you trust us first.

LightBurn Setup

Click Next, then click 'Install'. The installation will proceed. When it completes, you'll see this:

Finish Setup

If you have never installed LightBurn before, you might need to check the 'Install FTDI driver' button - this is mostly used by DSP controllers, like Ruida and TopWisdom, and it only needs to be done once. If you update the software later, you do not need to repeat this step.

That's it! Locate the LightBurn icon to launch the program

Next:Running LightBurn for the first time


MacOS Installation

Installing on the Mac is simple, but requires you tell MacOS that you trust us. LightBurn is digitally signed, but Apple has added a new process called 'Notarization' that we have not completed yet.
