Had my eleksmaker clone nano grbl 1.1f in storage for a while so set it up again on a new computer.
I can move the head now ie i make a circle in lightburn (under grbl 1.1f) , press start and the axis move and make the circle but the laser does not switch on. I had a lower wattage spare laser module that I bought at the time and have tried that and that also does not switch on (might be incompatible I guess).
Not sure if I need to change something in lightburn of if the board might have gone funny in storage.
So it could be the laser, part of the board gone faulty or lightburn issue.
Is there a way to test a 4 wire laser (with a 2 wire dongle box attached) ie just plug it into a 12v supply?
Is there a control code I can send to switch the laser on in lightburn?
Or any other suggestions…
