LaserAxe / LaserAxe to GRBL
« on: March 11, 2017, 09:16:58 AM »
so, as far as i can see there was a topic about flashing the Axe board to use normal grbl and other software, any more specific info on how to do it?

Assembly Help / some assambly issues with LaserAxe, need some advice
« on: January 25, 2017, 05:21:21 PM »
2 weeks after i got it, sat to assemble it and ran into few issues

1 - they gave me un threaded frame so i have to use "force" to attach legs to it and might have warped or changed the frame a bit as the middle frame doesn't move as smooth as it should
2 - any advice on belt tension options? it's sh** on the Axe
3 - missing a bolt for the laser unit (need to get one later)

any wisdom on assembly?

General Discussion / LaserAxe 7W had arrived, question time
« on: January 05, 2017, 01:27:07 PM »
the LaserAxe i ordered arrived, and while i didn't assemble it yet (this weekend)
need to ask few questions

1) the laser has a PWM and TTL, but the PWM is the one connected, what is the difference significance?
2) i plan to add a small vent as a blower to remove smoke, saw that the board had unused fan pins, should i use them or find another power source?
3) the laser has a fixed focus (got a small metal raising table with it) the "manual" assembley that lowers the laser up and down isn't the most solid peace of machinery i had ever seen, any ideas for replacement?
4) in theory, can i use a different controller with this laser? the big issue is it using dual motor setup and not triple
5) how do i check what grbl does it use (to know if i can use with T2 for example) and if its stock grbl or did they change it somehow

General Discussion / need some new laser engraver advice

first of all, hi to all... new to the forum
my first laser was a small 300mw benbox

right now i plan to get a new one for 2017 with more power and work space.

up until few days ago i was ready to get a AS_5 that used a 10W pulse / 6W normal laser with A5 work space, my main need is to work with anodized aluminum, plan to make some tags as gifts for friends

now found out about LaserAxe that had a better "normal" arduino based controller with grbl that runs with 7W laser that should (by their words) also able to mark anodized aluminium. and also gives me more options for work space A4/A3

need some advice from people with more experience on the subject
