t2 software
« on: December 15, 2018, 07:43:18 AM »
I am very new to this programming process.  I just bought aTwoWin laser from China.  I download and installed t2 software.  I donít know where to begin,  I canít get the laser to turn off and on with the software.  I am primarily interested in photo engraving.  Any help will be appreciated.  Thank you Harold

Never heard of that laser? Got pictures or a link? Can't help if I don't know how that laser is intended to work.

Hmm interesting. Looks like a laseraxe clone. Did you flash firmware in t2 or are you using stock firmware.

What do you mean flashing firmware?

I have noticed on the laser control board, there are some push pins that can be closed, could this be an issue?

I am beginning to think that the t2 software is not working with the controller.

Your problem is most likely firmware related. Not t2 related. It says it runs grbl. T2 runs grbl. Your board has firmware installed that tells it how to interpret the grbl signals. If it is not reacting right I'm fairly sure you have a firmware issue. T2 sends grbl just like every other software. So if t2 isn't working you won't likely find a different software that does.  Is that looks like a laseraxe clone you will most likely need to use the laseraxe firmware. There is a copy in t2

The problem here is actually hardware, he connected a TTL 5.5W to the MOSFET output - so the 12VDC PWM is feeding the input. Not sure yet what damage has been done, hopefully he got lucky.
