General Discussion / Cohesion 3D mini for K40 (OPEN)
« on: May 11, 2017, 02:41:44 PM »
Got a question....has anyone looked at the Cohesion 3D mini for the K 40?  I'm looking to maybe purchase this board as an upgrade.  It looks like it is pretty much plug and play.  Also it will run grbl 1.1.    Could maybe this be configured to run T2 or Bencut software? 

Thanks in advance for any input.

General Discussion / What software do you use for CO2?
« on: May 08, 2017, 10:02:34 AM »
So, I pulled the trigger on a Chinese CO2 laser.  Couldn't turn it down for $200.  What are you using for software? ::)

General Discussion / Impounded Christmas present
« on: February 19, 2017, 06:57:51 AM »
Hello all,
My dad ordered a replacement 3.5 watt TTL laser for Christmas.  He had no idea what to order or where to order it from so I thought I would make it easy for him and found one on Amazon.  He ordered it two months before Christmas with the hope of maybe receiving it on or around that time.  It never did.  Amazon is pretty good with tracking orders until they are passed off to the shipper.  In this case it was DHL.  After that, tracking is not so good.  Some time around January 16 my dad got a notification that he should be home to accept delivery. It never did.  After several more days and weeks and several email flurries between Amazon and DHL it has been determined that my replacement laser has been impounded and seized by the US somewhere in Ohio because it is hazardous and could be used for "terrorist means".  Amazon will not issue a refund and DHL has washed their hands of the whole thing.  One of the emails suggested that I hire legal council.  I'm not gonna hire a lawyer for a stupid laser. I just wanted to let everyone know to be careful.  Just wish there were cheaper alternatives that are not overseas. >:( :'(

Spare Parts Sources / Replacement wheels
« on: February 12, 2017, 12:53:39 PM »
Hello all,
I don't have access to a micrometer and would like to know if anyone has measured the stock wheels that come with the A5.  I would like to replace them with something much better as the stock ones are terrible.  Mine have flat spots and the bearings are iffy at best.  Does anyone have a link for better wheels that would fit on the A5?

Thanks in advance,
Phil

T2 Engraving / Home switches
« on: January 01, 2017, 12:42:12 PM »
Again, as a total newbie I am trying to get my head around home switches. Can anyone tell me how to make this work and how to mount them on a A5.  I am running Zax's t2 software with his latest grbl.

Thanks again,

T2 Engraving / Glossary of terms
« on: December 18, 2016, 11:43:35 AM »
All,

Since I am a total newb, is there anywhere I can look to find an explanation of all the features that Zax has on his T2 software?  I have been pretty much "willy nilly" choosing settings on the software and have had varying results.  For example, what is dithering?  I see pictures but haven't seen explanations.  I have downloaded the instructions and truly believe the software is head and shoulders above the pack for ease of use, but am having a hard time wrapping my head around all the settings. 

Thanks,

Phil

General Discussion / TTL for dummies
« on: December 18, 2016, 10:14:16 AM »
Hello all,

I will be upgrading my engraver with a new TTL controlled module.  I have been reading several posts about how to connect the TTL to the Eleks board , but am confused and I dont want to burn up the board or laser.  Does anyone have a point to point diagram or lots of pictures that would help a complete newb?

T2 Engraving / Rotating dxf
« on: November 13, 2016, 01:02:38 PM »
Can a dxf image be rotated?  The image that I am trying to cut is too wide for the laser.  If I can rotate the image, it will fit.  I tried to rotate it, but it won't.

Thank you,

Phil

T2 Engraving / Out of memory and dxf imports
« on: June 24, 2016, 02:08:57 PM »
I am having problems with re-sizing my project. Every time I try to resize my project, I get an out of memory error.  Also when I try to import a dxf, I receive an error that states that I need to "unblock" it.  Anyone, is there something that I am doing wrong?
