Yes that'd be the TTL module for the laser :)

How powerful is your laser? What wattage?
Laser: A5 2000mw with L7 Board / A3 2500mw PWM with Mana SE
OS: Windows 10 / Mac OSX / Linux Mint / Raspbian
Software: T2L

It's the 2W TTL laser sold on banggood. I used to use the 2.5W but found it has a "startup" time of ~1sek each time it powered on so cutting performance was very poor after each travel.
Havnt fully tested this one but it seems to power on full right away which gives better performance even if lower powered.


Next step for the SiXYLaser, see if able to implement end stops to work well with the controller board, and figure out best placement of the endstops.

If you are running GRBL 1.1e, the delay is built in. Ralph's mod toe 1.1e settings will get rid of the delay.

Hello Ralph.
Shouldnt the thread be moved to "Custom Size Frames", since the gantry can be of any size the user wishes just by changing rod and belt length?

Thanks Ralph. Hope to get time now during summer to finalize the first "final" iteration of SiXYLaser :)

Thanks for all the work pawpapwaw. I will not be able to 3D print when the parts are posted on Thingeverse, as I have no 3D printing setup. In any case, the manual issue is a common problem, especially when you try to do it in other languages. The Chinese at ELEKS got around the problem by making a construction video. So, you could make such a video that anyone could "read".
