EleksLaser A3 Pro settings for PicLaser

Postby BobF » Sat Nov 04, 2017 6:48 am

Hello

I just bought a EleksLaser A3 Pro which is working quite well.
I'd like to know if anyone would have the settings for laser engraver for me to put in PicLaser.

Regards

Bob :?)

Hi Bob,

What version of grbl does it use? Is it capable of PWM laser control to engrave grayscale? If so, look on Page 9 in the Tutorial for starting place settings. Depending on the laser diode's wattage, adjust the feedrate setting.

Hi Jeff

It uses the grbl .9. I finally found out how to control the laser power. The software delivered with the laser engraver does only on/off!
After some trial and error, I'm getting some good results with PicLaser and PicSender!

I'll make some advertisement for those on the Eleksmaker forum ;-)

Regards

Bob :-)

Hi Bob,

That's great. You may want to update your grbl to the one that can be downloaded on this forum's main page. It uses Pin 11 & ground for the PWM laser control.
