Windows10, GRBL and LaserWeb 3 support

  • I bought a A3 engrever with a 2.5W laser through BangGood.
    Then I try to install the ElecksCAM, but It was not able to work under W10.
    So I contacted some Fablab friends and they recommand to use laserWeb3, there it was fine but I had to upgrade the GRBL ROM to 1.1 release (while the default of your setup is 0.8).

    So questions:

    • where can i found the USB drivres for Windows 10 ?

    • Is your ElksCAM application able to work with a GRBL ROM of 1.1 (or is it limited to 0.8), note that UART setup for 1.1 is now 115200bps ?

    • Do you have the GRBL setup (all the $xx register values) for my A3 machine (epecially accelerations max parameters) ? I have use this one link text. Is it OK ?

    thanks for your support.

  • I am still on Windows 7 so cant help with that.

    Elekscam will not currently work with 1.1 but will work with 0.9.

    The setup values I am using are

    $0=10 (step pulse, usec)
    $1=25 (step idle delay, msec)
    $2=0 (step port invert mask:00000000)
    $3=0 (dir port invert mask:00000000)
    $4=0 (step enable invert, bool)
    $5=0 (limit pins invert, bool)
    $6=0 (probe pin invert, bool)
    $10=3 (status report mask:00000011)
    $11=0.010 (junction deviation, mm)
    $12=0.002 (arc tolerance, mm)
    $13=0 (report inches, bool)
    $20=0 (soft limits, bool)
    $21=0 (hard limits, bool)
    $22=0 (homing cycle, bool)
    $23=0 (homing dir invert mask:00000000)
    $24=25.000 (homing feed, mm/min)
    $25=500.000 (homing seek, mm/min)
    $26=250 (homing debounce, msec)
    $27=1.000 (homing pull-off, mm)
    $100=80.000 (x, step/mm)
    $101=80.000 (y, step/mm)
    $102=80.000 (z, step/mm)
    $110=5000.000 (x max rate, mm/min)
    $111=5000.000 (y max rate, mm/min)
    $112=5000.000 (z max rate, mm/min)
    $120=500.000 (x accel, mm/sec^2)
    $121=500.000 (y accel, mm/sec^2)
    $122=500.000 (z accel, mm/sec^2)
    $130=500.000 (x max travel, mm)
    $131=500.000 (y max travel, mm)
    $132=500.000 (z max travel, mm)

  • What Chip you use? I buy my A3 laser 1 month ago and it have Mana Se onbord.
    That what I read on another forum "Grbl 1.1e (to maintain compatibility with T2 Laser). MUST use 1.1e with the Mana SE controller board!" BUT I dont know what it means)) Have not tried it yet.

  • Developer of T2Laser Software

    You can use any Grbl firmware with T2Laser (from the oldest benbox to the latest 1.1f) but if you use mana.hex which is the older Grbl 0.9 it doesn't support some of the cool features like dynamic power control or real time feed rate and power overrides.
