Looks like it's coming along very good Jerry. Can't wait to see you laser engravings from all your hard work on this build. :cool)

I'm at a slight stand still till I can get my Stepper Motors, maybe at next payday. Meanwhile I was trying to figure out how the Arduino will run the laser. It seems to be setup for 3 axis's. Will I need an extra stepper and diver for an encoder or does it use dithering, is it something else? I have the PicSender in the Computer and I have been trying to get the settings right. That is all working but I probably won't know anything for sure until I get it setup on the laser.
Thanks Jerry

Hi Jerry,

No need for an encoder. The Arduino UNO outputs PWM on Pin 11 & ground for modulating the laser with S commands.

I just been reading about PWM and there is some YouTube stuff that's good too.

When flashing the J-Tech LaserMode firmware download to the UNO that is on our forum main page, it uses a S0-S255 command range for 0-5v to the modulation input on the Laser Driver.

Update 4/20
Have limits in and wired. I am up to $133.20 but I am almost to the point to where I need to buy expensive stuff. The wire chain was copied from a YouTube video.
Thanks Jerry

Jerry,

Your spending way too much on that build. ;-D ;-D ;-D

It looks very professional and I'm very impressed. :Bravo!

Jeff
