@EleksMaker-Z Cool. Will there be an option to extend my current version of A3? For example, a 5$ extension to the Arduino Nano.

Power supply 5V
I have the Eleksmaker A3 and I would like to use it as a 5V power supply. I believe the board is based on Arduino, so I assume there must be some pins available which can supply power.
I would attach the 5V pins to one half of a microUSB cable, such that it can power my Raspberry Pi.
I know this is hacky, so please don't remind me > EleksMaker has the word 'maker' in it for a reason. Just give me some advice about the board.
Some options I see are:
- The 12V output (see top of image)
- The 5V pins (see left of image)
- The weird black thing (see right of image)
Flipping wood around and aligning
The A3 cannot cut very deep. One trick to cut thicker pieces of wood is to flip the wood around and cut a second time from the other side (possibly mirroring the shape).
However, alignment becomes an issue as you would need to manually align the piece of wood so that the cuts occur on exactly the same place as the opposite side of the wood.
What tricks and techniques could you come up with to help this alignment?
RE: Error installing EleksCam Software
@vonncroy Could you explain th solution you found? I have the same problem on one of my laptops (not on the other one strangely enough...)
