Re: Engraving skewed, cutting fine

Hooray! Fantastic news. I would not have thought a driver could do that but I suppose it makes sense.

Re: Engraving skewed, cutting fine

Could be one of those process of elimination things you have to go through. Try replacing the x motor and driver with a cheap one if you have a closed loop stepper and just see if it’s that. I have a wobble issue on my y axis and I think it’s down to friction and the axle not being true. I feel your...

Re: Controller replacement help needed

Actually i’ve found the Chinese are fantastic at their support. I got in touch with Anywells for an issue with an old AWC608 from here and the guy stayed up till 3am their time to help me out.

By the way. I have no experience of the Leetro so I am going to stop commenting on this now :)

Re: Controller replacement help needed

If you aren’t too happy with the support here ( I read the other post by the way ) You might want to try the laser cutting forum on Reddit. People are really helpful there.

Re: Corel Draw X8 and Macro Install issue

It won’t work with home and student suite. The Corel Draw macro requires Visual Basic and home and student suite doesn’t have that. For the others - Even if you could install it into the Corel directory manually you won’t have the macro installed. I assume that RDCam is very similar to LaserCad, so ...

Re: LO X7 or power supply issue , Help Please - SOLVED

I now use IP68 17 amp at 400v in-line connectors for my positive and negative connections. Dirt cheap and very safe!

Re: Beam inside or outside of line

You can work it out. If whatever you cut out is the right size or marginally smaller ( use some digital calipers ) then you will know. To work out your kerf cut a series of for example 10 squares. Put those squares together and measure the overall width. Measure the width of the hole left by cutting...

Re: Laser Jacket

By the way. From now on I recommend you get them to connect the wire at the factory and use a IP68 inline connector for your positive wire. It’s much safer. It need to be rated quite high. You can get 17 amps at 400v which is more than enough power rating for - for example - 0.25 amps at 2Kv.

Re: 60w power supply on a 50w tube

Btw.

You might want to ask on Reddit laser forum. This is the light object forum for light object support. If you aren’t gonna buy from them it seems a tiny bit rude asking for help on their forum. ;)

Re: 60w power supply on a 50w tube

You’ll have to limit the current in some way so it doesn’t screw up the tube. Which you can do using a potentiometer and an ammeter. If you are connecting a new tube please get the terminals connected at the factory and use an IP68 inline connector rated for at least 13 amps at 400 volts to connect ...

Re: gunk in tube: what to do?

No probs.

By the way. Leave your pump on. It’ll keep the nasties from setting up home in one place and keep them filtering through the pump.

Re: gunk in tube: what to do?

So whilst I know it’s not that helpful now you have it. Here’s my so far tried and tested method for never getting gunk In the tube. Wash all lines and tubs with a bleach and water solution. Do it again. Do it again. :D Use de ionised water - less minerals in it and less oxygen. Now your experience ...
