Yes, but you will need to solder wires. The TTL signal comes from D11 on the Nano, and you would also want a 12V power and ground. If you are not comfortable doing that and want a plug and play solution, look at the EleksMaker laser and Mana board.

What software / firmware are you using?

If you are using my T2Laser then the default firmware (Grbl 1.1e) supports TTL.

benbox 3.7.99 and I am currently using a faulty laser (laser is not TTL)

TTL laser comes for 1-2 months,

not : t2 laser and GRBL laser does not recognize my ardiuno board

T2Laser will work with Benbox firmware and any clone board, but it is much better to update to Grbl 1.1. I provide firmware and options for old and new boards so something should work.

If you want to use Benbox you can only use their old firmware.

Please give me fw link for my board

I can get the backup software on it ?

The firmware needs to match the software and your hardware, as I said Benbox only works with a custom Grbl 0.8 version. If you install 0.9 or 1.1 you'll no longer be able to use Benbox.

I wrote T2Laser as an alternate software and it comes with the COM driver and firmware as a complete package.
