Pay attention to safety and safe use of machines.....
Do not leave while the machine is working, especially when there are flammable substances around.
e....what is fade means?
@crashradius Yes, you can use the D11 pin from the Nano directly. The Eleks boards only route the Nano signals to the connectors, so for the servo or laser TTL they take D11 and put that signal on a header. You would also need to get the appropriate power for the servo but it would be easy to make a cable up.
@lll I'm not sure what you mean, just like any other machine. The EleksDraw is a Grbl based system the same as a laser, it just replaces the laser with a servo.
If your EleksDraw is already working you don't need to do anything special, otherwise you would load the Eleks Mana firmware and configure it from the menu in T2Laser.
@martinisonline Actually the PWM frequency is easy to change, but won't help much. It is based on native 62.5kHz, so in addition to this high frequency the common options are:
1/8 = 7.8kHz (used in v0.9)
1/32 = 1.96kHz
1/64 = 0.98kHz (current default)
I suspect the diode is a standard 6W nubm44, so the recommended CW current is 4A @ 25°C (optical output would be ~6W) but the datasheet does specify a maximum current of 5A at pulse width 0.1us, 50% duty cycle.
15W is totally unreasonable unless you want it to last a few hours, any reputable manufacturer would rate this as a 5.5W.
