I'm going to be providing a little more details later on, but I wanted to get this posted this evening.
For the last two weeks I've been working with one of my BCL customers who purchased a 3D printer from Gcreate and then bought a 3.6 watt laser diode from jtechphotonics and mounted the laser head to the Z axis.
His setup contains a RAMPS 1.4 controller with a Mega2560 microprocessor. gCreate did some small modifications to the Marlin Grbl software. Some of the gcode commands that we Benbox users are used to, have been changed on his setup and I've modified BCL to support it. His testing included Z axis testing and I am pleased to report that BCL is now working 100% on his new modified laser machine with a nice Z axis gantry.
He connects at 250,000 baud, which is an odd baud rate, but that is what is needed and that is what works.
More information to follow!
