    Re: Dual purpose CNC

    If you want to use Arduino Nano, here are the files so that you can make an adapter board.
    The D-25 is feemale, as on your computer.
    Pinout is the same as for Mach3, Pin 1 is PWM!!
    All home/limit switches are NC.

    Thanks eriks, So it's similar. The one I have shown is 15Watt. Will the 10W version cut through 5mm Plywood. Do you have a manufacturers model or part number on your laser, where can I buy ?

    I did not buy one, was just doing a bit of research. The strongest they do is 10W. Best to visit their site, if you contact them they are very good at answering questions

    You will need to verify that the pinout of this board is correct for the breakout board you are currently using. As far as "Being the same as Mach3", Mach 3 has software customizable pinouts so that cannot be guaranteed.

    Re: Dual purpose CNC

    Welll...
    I do use Mach3 and GRBL with a board that iI attached pic and pdf.
    I just switch LPT cable from computer to my adapter board.
    On the other end is 5 axis breakout board (of course, chineese made)

    OK, maybe I cheateed a little bit, I recompiled GRBL with a bit different pinout to be compatible with my BOB pinout.
    Anyway, dynamic laser power works like a charm, no overburn at edges.

    BTW the USB connector is for powering BOB (needs 5V.
