Re: Laser Head Question

I didn't know the lens was that sensitive to damage, please disregard my advise.

This weekend I'll pull my focus lens and check it, right now I'm working on engraving.
Trying to find the best speed/power for engraving from and image to simple wood.

Re: Laser Head Question

Once you have it installed, stick a toothpick up in the air cone (carefully) until it touches the lens. Mark the toothpick where it comes out the cone. Pull out the toothpick and measure, subtract that from 50.8 mm and you have your 'cone to material' measurement. This will give you a good starting ...

Re: What Stepping Motor Driver Should I buy ? U-axis . . .

Re: Raycam and Rotary on U axis

You don't expect me to answer you right away, do you? Every technical question received I have to try it and duplicate it before I can make my suggestion or advise. You may contact the card manufacturer to technical issue if you don't have a solution. Remember that we're not the manufacturer of the...

LO-X7 with RayCam firmware: Output Control

I have upgraded my DSP firmware to RayCam software 1.5 Based on the information from this thread; http://www.lightobject.info/viewtopic.php?f=55&t=3090&hilit=dsp+output+control It says Output 2 should go high (24VDC) when the laser is firing. This is true, if I walk up to the DSP and press '...

Re: Any update on being able to use U-Axis for rotary engraving

Marco,

Sorry, my fault, I was confused a little.

What address do I send it to ? and how much ?

If you use UPS, I can include a label for return shipping.

Thanks !

Todd

Re: Any update on being able to use U-Axis for rotary engraving

What do I send in for the firmware upgrade;
the LCD Display or the unit you hook all the wires to ?

Is there a way to save my current settings or will any settings get lost ?

Will the v1.5 software & firmware upgrade give me a U-Axis. Yes or No ??

Re: Any update on being able to use U-Axis for rotary engraving

I just installed RayCam v1.2. I didn't see any U-Axis support ?

If I send in my LO-X7 to upgrade the firmware and run RayCam v1.2.

Will I have the ability to use the U-Axis ?

Re: Any update on being able to use U-Axis for rotary engraving

One of the reasons I purchased this DSP, was for the rotary U-Axis feature.

At the time, it was implied that it would be there as an update in the software.

I would rather have a working U-Axis instead of doing rubber stamps w/ramps.

Re: Laser build

Well Done ! Looks nice !

I'm building the same frame, but I have yet to take any recent pictures.

I wasn't planning to skin mine yet, but I like what you did on yours.

Re: Lightobject 600W Mini Water Chiller wont CHILL

Marco,

That's a nice offer, but I ran it for a few hours, just concerned
about the compressor may be bad now (ran low on oil) it was hot !

It'll will cost me $95 to ship it back, I'd rather exchange it for a
new one if I have to pay.

I'm sure we can work it out.

Re: Lightobject 600W Mini Water Chiller wont CHILL

Took cover off, refrigerant lines do not get cold.
There is a light mist of oil on copper lines, must
be where the leak is. Talked to an AC guy to see
if it could be recharged (yes) but if the compressor
ran for a while without freon, it's also bad.
