T2Laser Software - Introduction

    @Usti74 Does the laser work correctly?

    Do you get the "Grbl Ready" message when connecting?

  • Hi Zax,
    Connected COM3 115200
    Grbl Ready

    "Laser Pulse" works correctly!

    Only the axes are dead. I also tried on another pc but nothing

    @Usti74 That's strange then, you know it has power since the laser works but none of the motors move. I'm not sure how that would happen, time to do some diagnostics work.

    Put it in debug mode and see what firmware you have loaded, hopefully my build of Grbl 1.1e.

    Try disconnecting all but one motor and see if that works, wondering if there's a short or something in the cable.

  • Hi zax I changed the PC as I have to do to activate the laser t2?

  • @Zax The servo motor doesn't work anymore. I am sure that it is because it thinks I am using a laser engraver although I use the EleksDraw but when I try to change it it just spits out errors and I cannot flash the board with more up to date software et cetera. Everything works like a charm except the servo and I tested multiple and none seem to work. Any ideas on how to solve the problem? I have a genuine Nano as my microprocessor atm.

    @Anima If you have an EleksDraw you can only use Eleks Mana firmware, it needs CoreXY and servo support.

  • Hi Zax,
    i'm having some beginner issues. I bought a Eleksmaker A3 pro. So fare I have installed Elekscam and found that it is not at all reliable and very limited. T2 laser seems far more useful for my purposes, but I have not been able to successfully connect it with my machine. After loading the default 1.1e Firmware, whenever I try to send the G-code to my machine, the laser flashes on for a second and then either nothing happens or it tells me that the Port is closed.

    @Konrad When you connect do you get the Grbl Ready message?

    If not, double check the COM port and baud rate (115200 with my default firmware).

    Once you are connected, if it disconnects this is usually a bad cable or power saving on the port.

  • T2laser worked OK last week,but now when I get to the
    control screen can't trace the frame also I cam move the
    laser with the up/down/side to side controls but the
    X and Y value stay at 0s. Thanks for any help

    @Bob-Huish Have you used other software? It sounds like the firmware parameters have been changed and Grbl is no longer reporting positions. If this is my firmware you can reset from the Machine menu.

  • Ciao Zax, dopo aver comperato il programma che trovo meraviglioso e funziona perfettamente con la mia CNC, non riesco a trovare, nei menù, la voce dove portare il laser al massimo.

    Laser min and max are set using the laser icon.


    If you are using my firmware and default parameters, 255 is max but if the parameters were changed by other software or you are not using my firmware then it is likely 1000. The Nano has 8-bit outputs so 0-255 is the true range, using 1000 just requires it to be downscaled by the firmware before output. You don't get more power or more variation, just more complexity and confusion which is why I use the direct values 0-255.

  • Ciao Zax e grazie per la risposta, adesso è molto semplice. Ho ancora una domanda: quali sono i comandi per stampare foto in scala di grigi? per quanto ho provato non ci sono riuscito e mi ritrovo con la stampa solo in B/N.

  • Developer of T2Laser Software

    @corpon There are no special commands, just select the grey scale icon and T2Laser will generate the correct G-code.

  • Nonostante le tue spiegazioni questa immagine in scala di grigi non vuole proprio uscire. Effettuo queste operazioni: carico l'immagine a colori di un paesaggio, aggiusto le dimensioni di uscita perche è solo una prova, premo l'icona dei grigi, premo l'icona di controllo laser da conferma a generare g-code, do conferma a salvarlo, compare la finestra del g-code T2Laser.
    In questa finestra ho inserito i valori "Potenza del laser 40 ed impulso 20 Ms" ma ahimè l'uscita dell'immagine è un semplice rettangolo con un bordo nero ed il riempimento è tutto grigio.

    @corpon What firmware are you using?

    Do you have laser min and max set correctly?

    How does the G-code simulation "view" look?

    The manual laser power and pulse settings do not affect the G-code.
