I suspect my issue has been addressed somewhere, but I’m unable to find the answer so far.
I’ve got myself an aliexpress 5.5w diode laser cutter/engraver.
flashed the nano firmware up to grbl 1.1f, but when I try to cut a dfx file, the green lines (which I believe are supposed to be low power) are being cut the same as the red gcode lines.
change M4 to M3 ?!
and i have nothing write on tool On Or Tool Off … i must write ?!
i Men in this Photo … explain More
There anything Need to change !! thnx
LOL… I’ve put clearly on third line "put M3 on ‘Tool On’ and M5 on ‘Tool Off’. "
@Jorge_Robles why do we need M3 and M5 ? Isn’t Laser mode taking care of that by using G0 and G1?
@Ariel_Yahni_UniKpty , true, just throw up from my mind. Sorry
Thanks one an all for the advice. Cuts like a champion now!
I seem to be able to get away with ~10% power to cut paper which is rather nice. Would much rather drive the laser at lower power.
