Aspire and Laser
« on: October 17, 2017, 01:23:51 PM »
Hi all,
I have a Heiz 1000 machine and use Vectric Aspire software.  I also use a Kress router.  I have been thinking of getting a laser but have a problem understanding how this actually works.  I have read that the "on/off) is triggered through the Z axis but I need to have the Mach3 settings also I never see a cable being installed into the controller so I am confused about that.  So to recap, If I get a laser, I can mount it and Power it but everything else is sorcery. so can someone point me in the right direction on install the Z drive physically and the Mach3 side of it.  Any help would be gratefully received.
Dave
