General Discussion / Help on Z-axis reference
« on: December 09, 2017, 04:13:57 AM »
pleae help with setup the Z-axis, to  get Z-axis referencing automaticly.
Can it be done with the GBRL parameters, or should it be done by config.h in the source?
Got all setup, but ignores the Z-axis with reference.
It runs really well in CNC mode with the T2 laser software.

General Discussion / A3X rewired with flatcable
« on: December 09, 2017, 03:50:05 AM »
Hi,

Got the A3X elekslaser ... Always got problems with the short wires used by the designer.
Resulting in bad laserjobs, and unwanted axis stops.
Tried to redesign the whole wiring setup by using flatcable and suitable connectors.
Even attached the Z-axis for this design.
See pics for current looks

Laser is working very stable right now!!

General Discussion / 40watt Co2 laser rebuild
« on: February 26, 2017, 06:46:43 AM »
Hi,
Been away for a while. Had a lot off discussions with the chinese supplyer.
Not only for thew delivery time, but also of the damaged parts after receiving the laser.
Never mind, got 3 new mirrors, because of the scratches on the mirrors, en got some refund :)

a few weeks ago i started  to draw a table for my chinese laser, cause i want to move it around on my attic.
Draw and build this stainles steel table, incl a 15Liter cooling tank inserted in the lower shelf.
The pump i'm gonna  use is a cooling pump normally used on a cnc coolwaterpump 50L/Pm that i'm gonna regulate to 6 ~ 10 LPM.
Also gonna change the safety circuit, in europe whe have CE , chinese use the same logo as CE=Chinese Export.

Some other pics will follow.

This laser contains a studiolabs M2 Nano board, and works with coraldraw and inkscape. (I'd rather wan't to use T2 laser instead)
Never mind , maybe some of you guys can give me some advice.

thanks.......

Laser Modules / Laser module 12V can it run PWM
« on: December 03, 2016, 02:42:01 AM »
Hi,

got the A3 laser engraver from china with the eleks L7 board.
Use T2laser and PWM jumper setting 0.9 Gbrl.
Use firmware pwm 1Khz. I can see that it controls the power of the laser module,
but engraving settings for laser power is now 0 ~255. It's engravings a little light.
Does this module support PWM.. knowing it's a CC driver input 12V
Laser module in atachment...

Advice please. Don't wanna break the module..
