First off all, I liked very much your container solution.
Would you help me setting my A3 5.500 laser.
EleksCam latest version would not install. - message "... missing DLL..."
I run it, it open but I got stuck on the config.
@jangles22 Can you tell us which way it is not moving - X (on the higher rail) or Y (on the two lower rails)?
If it is X, then a common problem is that the wheels on the white plates are slightly too close together, making the carriage hard to move and also denting the wheels so you can feel bumps when you do move it. To fix this, slightly file out the upper holes away from the lower ones. See http://www.igregious.com/2017/10/eleksmaker-a3x-build-notes.html.
Otherwise unbolt the stepper motors so there is no load, and see if it turns then. If not, swap the connections between the non-working stepper and a working one. This will tell you if it's a bad stepper. Then swap the other end of the cable, which will tell you if it's the cable. Then swap the driver board, which will tell you if that's the problem.
Good luck, and report back what the problem was when you find it.
I know it isn't a true 15W but as that's how it's described I thought I'd do the same to keep in line with the seller description. Thank you for saying as if it wasn't something I knew I would have liked to have known.
I've tried grounding the connection but still get the same result mores the pity. I'll open a case but I'd still like to know if anyone sells a replacement driver board as having one on the shelf is never a bad thing.
I have recently built my Kit. It worked flawlessly on first attempt. But it seems I can't control the laser power, as it works always at full power regardless of the setting of the ON/OFF and WEAK parameters. Am I doing anything wrong?. Thanks!
Did you read wiki pages on laser? Laser power not control with ON/OFF or WEAK. Laser power controlled in SETTING
