I am new to this software. I searched for my answer, but have not yet found one that works.
Anet A8 with standard mainboard
Using PWM output of fan to control laser
So as per the title, my issue is that the laser remains on when moving over whitespace when in “Line” mode.
It does not seem to do this in “Fill” or other modes (though have not yet had chance to play around very much).
I notice the “Minimum Power” is greyed out, I thought this was maybe the problem but then when I swapped the laser for the fan so that I could hear what it was doing, it was running at the speed I asked for all the time.
Interestingly at the end of the gcode, the laswer does switch off. Likewise, it SEEMS to switch off in white spaces when doing line/fill or just fill.
I cannot seem to find a way to stop it from doing this - I am hoping there’s something stupid and obvious that I have missed. I have seen this problem with other firmwares on the forum.
Please don’t be gentle, if I have been a moron please say so (and kindly say what I did wrong so I can fix it!).
