Hi all, I have a Chronosmaker board for a laser cutter I built. My questions are:
Can any board run multiple lasers at the same time (think CNC drilling table with multiple heads). I want to run six or eight lasers at once to become more profitable and to reduce wear and tear on my machine.

Things I think will be an issue are

1. Do I need multiple boards or can one board run all of the heads whether it's one or six?

2. Will I need special software?

Can I solve this by providing the required power to the stepper motors and laser and use a single board to send instructions to the steppers?
