The first step is loading the Windows device driver (for the CH340), it's in the Help menu.

Then you select the COM port and set baud rate to 115200 and click the lightning bolt to connect.

You should get 2 messages:
Connected COMx @ 115200
Grbl Ready

Do you get these?

OK, you got me there... but if you hook up a big enough laser I'm sure my firmware and T2Laser could run it to clear your driveway  ;)

M3 and M4 are both valid in laser mode.

That's a very unusual board but appears to be a standard chipset, what is the problem?

M4 enables dynamic laser power mode with Grbl 1.1 so you get 0 power at 0 feed rate (i.e. not moving). M3 would just turn on at the set power level.

T2Laser and my default firmware fix most issues ;)

You probably have a mismatch between the software and firmware settings. This is why T2Laser offers the complete package; driver, customized firmware and software.

We all like free stuff but your time is probably the most valuable commodity you have.

T2 Engraving / Re: Default firmware

I can't as I have no idea what features they activated at the time it was compiled. There's probably very little difference except for the one you've discovered.

It isn't a standard Nano based board but it may still work with my default firmware. The OpenBuilds controller does not as it uses custom pin outs and initially I thought that's what you were using.

You can try flashing my default firmware, it's file name is 11d (for default, not the rev letter) and you will find it in the T2Laser resource folder. Use task manager to locate the install folder.

Not operator error, it's the way they have the firmware compiled. It is homing machine coordinates but not resetting workpiece coordinates which causes this unusual response.

It's an option in the firmware, if it's not enabled you have to set the 0,0 yourself which is obviously the case here. My firmware resets workpiece to match machine coordinates after homing.

It looks like you are getting good results, that grey scale test looks impressive. I would expect some power loss but perhaps not significant since most of the energy is centered.

That's good, you can change laser max with $30, as you can see your firmware is set to 1000 so you would need to set laser max in T2Laser to match. Either setting is fine.

I think you'll need to use the vendor supplied firmware with that machine as the pin outs aren't standard.

It looks like you were able to connect, did everything work as expected?

I would suggest an Eleks Mana board for a laser but you should be able to get the Woodpecker to work.

Since you have nothing to lose you could try my Grbl 1.1e Default and see what happens (I suspect the same but it's worth a try).
