Anyone have any other suggestions? Like how do you usually control a laser with mach3? Right now I have a spindle controlled threw my com1 port. If I made a second profile and etc. Say I bought this laser.http://cgi.ebay.com/100W-CO2-Sealed-Laser-Tube-Power-Supply-220v-Pumps_W0QQitemZ150195002460QQihZ005QQcategoryZ53141QQcmdZViewItem
how would I go about controlling it?
Also does anyone know a good cad/cam for lasers?
If I understand how these lasers work. You usually have a table that moves up and down for focus length. Well my table don't move. Couldn't I just move the focus lens up and down with Z axis. Have a mirror shoot the beam down and have the z axis focus the lens to my part.
