As I see - you use SVG files directly intended use with EggBot™. First thing - they a in pixel measures, not in millimeters. But that knowledge is also useless as EleksCAM did not render some SVG files correctly.
Hello. I've been using an engraver (2500 mW) for a year now and I needed one more. I bought one, but by 5.5 watts.
But I ran into a problem. I'm using PicSender. She has a good reputation and I'm used to it. It works without fail on the old engraver till now! But on the new engraver she does not burn the same NC files. The motors run, but the laser does not burn.
If you press SW2, it just burns everything. If you press SW1, the laser only works as a pointer.
On the old engraver there is no TTL and the controller is slightly different. Previous version. But it works. And the new engraver does not work, as it is necessary.
The same problem is in other similar programs: PicSender, GRBL Controller, Engraver Master...
Photo old work controller:
The sticky X axis may be flat spots on the wheels. The new design with the black rubber "V" wheels is a little too tight on some machines, and when the carriage sits in one place for a while, it gets flat spots from being pulled against the maker slide so tightly.
Try moving the carriage by hand, it the "sticky" spots match a full rotation of the wheels, this is probably your problem.
Some have had luck with loosening the bolts and spacer nuts with the carriage on the makerslide to move them to the edges of the holes. Others have had to open the holes slightly to make enough room. Be careful, if you elongate the holes too much, the carriage will get loose enough to mess up accuracy.
@Zax Yes Zax,it's exatly what i think too.
And for Benbox EleksMaker Z,no,i can't control the laser,as for with the total of software that can operate with this laser......
I ask to customer service if i can send them the laser and the board for check their efficiency,and i'm waiting their answer.
@MuuSer Thanks I have got a 2.5w so I will have to do a few more passes. I might have to get a bigger laser I am going to have a go at building something like the Eleksdraw but using the D wheels like the Elekslaser uses instead of the linear bearings so I could put one on there.
Some post were deleted This was my last post I think:
@mrmister Well, the X-Carve is bigger than the A3, so depending on the carving/cutting setting, stiffening is a good idea.
@EleksMaker could you please let us know more about your Z-Axis Kit and when will it be available, or maybe it would be a better idea to try other Z-Axis kits. I mean, right know for ~100$ we can buy a Z-axis, spindle and board that are already on the market...
@EleksMaker-Z you said 20 days ago that you will bring the Z-Axis online this month. Could you give any information regarding price, content and availability? Thanks
It's cutting to the correct size now, I don't know what changed but it's working now. I do see that when you tell InkScape to "stroke to path" it changes the location of the object and the size just a little. But when you open the file in Candle it's almost the same size. Thank you for the help. Dave.....
@EleksMaker ok, you see my laser board, and L7 board. what i need to do to get PWM? I'm not an engineer, i am a noob for this. i think: put 2 pin laser module to 12V in L7 board. or I'll break the laser?
