    Re: Laser cutting while in motion

    This is an interesting question. I would start at 12 o’clock move -X with the fabric moving at a constant speed Then go back to center then go +x and +Y at a faster rate then the fabric is...

    Re: trying to get into lasers, need help!

    Most of the lasers discussed on this site are CO2. You can only cut organic materials and acrylics with CO2. 12mm solid wood is on the thick side for typical lasers. If you do get the power to...

    Re: Uneven cutting across the laser bed

    It’s hard to say for sure but 100w should have no issues with 5mm solid wood. I’d align the machine and level the bed. Make sure the beam isn’t hitting the inside of a nose cone.

  4. Re: Ten-High Laser Engraver - Laser not firing, now arcing

    On the high power wire going to the tube I’d glob caulk around the
    connector to fully insulate it. Also make sure the machine has a good ground.

    Re: UCCNC Laser plugin - how to connect?

    I tried to get router CAM and hardware to work on my laser for years. I found a way to do it but then bought a DSP controller and found they are far better for a number of reasons.

    Re: TopWisdom Ruida swap question

    I would either put both limits of the same axis on that axis or only put the switch that it homes too. The controller knows that it’s moving the Y axis and either switch will stop it. I don’t...
  7. Re: AW708C Lite Controller - network problems

    I’m using a Vonets VAP11G-300 on my AW708C. Works great then I decided to go to a commonly sold WIFI extender to get a better signal. Has a couple Ethernet ports to plug into. Could not get it to...

    Re: POWER SUPPLY CONNECTIONS

    The old one is very standard. The new one lacks the IN signal. It must be combined with TH and TL. So they are not similar and not simply reversed in my opinion.

  9. Re: Laser power loss with no loss on ameter.

    Does the beam look normal? Like not wandering. Not splitting. If it does it could be the power supply.

  10. Re: Identifying stepper motor in order to replace

    I never had one fail and very unlikely two would go at the same time. Try swapping with another motor just to see if it’s the driver. Never unplug one of these with power on.

    Re: DIY Build - CO2 laser

    Normally there is a switch on the water that drives some terminal to ground or high on the power supply. Like a safety switch on the door. If during the cut the water stops then the beam stops. On...

    Re: Laser CNC - X and Y design

    Keep in mind that the goal is to keep the beam somewhat centered on all mirrors and the final lens. The greater the distance the more of a challenge that will be. Nothing can bend bow or twist. ...

    vcarve 4th axis rotary vs lathe routing

    something that might not be obvious when you consider 4th axis rotary is that this method is ideal and necessary when all points are not on the same diameter when spinning around an axis (not...

  18. Re: Laser setup - Mirrors aligned, getting two dots with pulse and tape on laser head

    I’d look closely at the lens. Then check the burn pattern behind each component starting behind the lens. If you get two burns out of the tube then it’s the tube. Due a quick test fire on...

    Re: Z axis laser machine

    You could adjust the lens up and down. That adjustment is limited but probably well within the thickness variation you can cut. Engraving thick materials is another story. If you don’t have macro Z...
  21. Re: How are these vectors open and how can i fix them

    Yes but in my case I’m importing dxf from some other source. I’m using cut2d to clean it up, close all shapes and post gcode for cutting.

    I figured it out. Left click, select all objects. Then right click, selection>select all open vectors. then Delete. Do this after you close all valuable vector shapes.

    Re: Corel laser axis configuration

    it looks like that main board also drives the steppers. So the stepper movement per pulse is built in to the board and probably not adjustable. In looking at that software you simply choose the...
