Hello, I followed all of your above steps listed multiple times and my servo is still doing absolutely nothing. It only moves when I first plug it in... and it appears to reset to a position. Otherwise none of the buttons or things above (select machine / servo mode / on/0ff at 50 and 20 / laser on laser off) it does nothing except when i plug it in. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you
I hope this help you There are a few recordings and instructional exercises on building the Eleks Laser, especially the GearBest (and Banggood) models. Be that as it may, most need points of interest, especially with the product setup.
The following are a few clues and tips for building your Gearbest or Banggood Eleks Laser Engraver. The Instructable above has the points of interest, yet I found these things as I went through the means in their instructional exercise.
1 Use the 1cm screws with nuts on the edge. Not the 1.2cm or 1.5cm jolts.
2 GearBest incorporates two little LED "dongles" similarly as toys. Not utilized by the laser. In the event that you connect them to a USB port on PC, they will illuminate. That is it, not all that much.
After long time, I think I got it to work...kind off. It is set as center but I have it like the other picture. Then I used 300x300 and 300x300 in elekscam. But I need to set inside 2 cm from the a4 in inkscape to work.
@metasyntactic I have an EleksDraw and run it from T2Laser. I support pen changes so you can load a file with several different colors and it will draw the first, then prompt you to change pens and continue with the next and so on. I also have a centerline trace feature which works well with pens.
Glue gun. I have also the same problem. I did make the screws a bit loose and put glue on the white board and the tubes (but I was carefull not to get any on the steel pins. But I don't know for how long it will last. For me that is temporary, I hope finding another way to fix this. the white plate should have two more holes for screws that might solve that problem.
I have also a win10 and downloaded the same version, there is no install indeed.
It s working on my side.
A couple of things that you can try : at several places I see that you need some additionnal packages from Microsoft to make the software work,
On this page : http://wiki.eleksmaker.com/doku.php?id=elekscam download and install :
NET Framework 4.0
VC windows 64bits
Then try to launch elekscam in admin mode (right clic, launch as admin)
I hope that this will help !
Good luck !
