@myslou If you swap one pair, so a+ and a- it will change the direction, the motors both need to work together not against each other.

RE: M3 (on) and M5 (off)
@Diego73 I don't understand what you are saying, G and M commands are exclusive.
What firmware are you using?
Does it support S values (spindle speed / laser power)?
Generally when the laser is temporarily turned off for moves it is set to S0 rather than M5 but T2Laser has post processor options that should be able to do what you want, I just need to understand better. Can you post example G-code or contact me via email as this doesn't seem to be an Eleks question.
RE: Swapping Eleks 2.5W for the 5W
@Lane The Eleksmaker laser module and EleksMana board are both 3 pin connectors and connect directly.
RE: What Laser module must I buy
@RodneyB Are you using my firmware? Is this an Eleks Mana board?
RE: Motor runs diagonally when printing.
@quietthomas Please dont just keep posting the same messages. It just spams the forum.
RE: User's Facts (post your tips here):
@quietthomas The reason the Eleks "Nano" has so many EEPROM (memory) related issues is they don't use a genuine Atmel ATmega328p but a Chinese copy. These experience memory failure due to temperature and will eventually stop working, the cheap replacements using a genuine chipset are much more reliable. Replace and problems solved.
Their controller boards and lasers are good quality, as are their machines in general so I still recommend them.
RE: Add pen to eleklaser a3
@Mirco89 The servo (for pen) uses the same output as the laser (D11 on the Nano) so you must swap from one to the other. It also requires you to change the firmware settings from laser to servo and it's important to do that before connecting the servo. Eleksmaker sell a module you can add to the laser.
RE: Laser control not line by line
@sseaman It depends on the image, the benefit of raster scanning is you get a superior image and less direction changes which require deceleration and acceleration - so actually it's not always slower. You can enable rapid skip blank which will bypass blank areas or you can use other methods to run the job as a vector with pseudo fill (hatching).
