last time I checked those products were super expensive so I didnt try it.  If the price has come down it could be fun.

oh wow 1500 is really fast for cutting!!! sounds like an air assist is what you need.  Dont know what you planned on using but a fish pump is popular, then air compressors, and finally pc fans.  I like my air compressor set up but they can be loud (if noise is an issue).  The fish pump is a good alternative and fairly quiet.  pc fans usually require ducting to get be effective.

Trouble Shooting / Re: Need help connecting Laser module to mana se

here is a really complex schematic I drew you.  FYI your laser only needs to be turned on and off by the mana.  It can get its power elsewhere.  Depending on how big a laser you got sometimes a second power supply is the desirable route to take.

ok so wire your new power supply to where it says power +/-   Wire the mana board S pin to the ttl (+)  Wire the mana board laser (-) to the ttl (-)

yes 3dhubs is great since someone near you with a 3d printer will print it out for you.  That makes your shipping really low.  I uploaded to 3dhubs to see what the prices were and the prices around me were $5-$23

Trouble Shooting / Re: wheels not rolling smoothly

With the tension deice on bottom you would not have a very shallow angle on the belt to the stepper motor and it would reduce the engrave able area because the wheels stick out a bit and would hit the belt tensioners sooner.  unless you flipped the gantry and put the steppers on top.

now you need a benchy boat, a wave stand, and smoke to go with your inappropriate gnome.  That is the most important thing about 3d printing.

If you have the new eleksmaker you could be having the same issue I did.  Mine was having problems from too much wheel tension.  it made things off by just a little.  I  made these adjustable tensioners to solve my problem.

Fantastic design and results!

Since they obviously don't have the tolerances from the factory (either the acrylic or wheels) this is a must have. I'm sure they will copy it soon  ;D

I hope they do!!!

It should.  But if it's the small white wheels use the file I remixed it from.
