how (Hardware) do you Switch your laser On/off?

scematics would also help.

 
anything is possible, just try to do it.
if you find some mistakes, in my bad bavarian english,they are yours.

Your Gcode looks OK.
From your .xml, you are using Output#1 for your spindle M3 /M5 commands and creating a conflict with the M11P1/M10P1 commands.
Change this to Output#2 in Spindle Setup for both M3 and M4 and also Enable Output#2 (set to an unused output pin) in Output Signals.

Hopefully...

Ok, so I don't think I have any spare output pins, should I use the pin 17 as was set in output 1?

I'm trying to attach the CP0-10v but the file is too big, hopefully this link will work,

the 0-10V part is clear, but imho there should be an Output witch is going to the enable Input from laser Interface.

This is where I'm out of my depth! I don't understand how it works, the 2 wires from the CP0-10V go to the Opt laser PLH3D-CNC adaptor into pin 4 & 6, then is it controlled by PWM freq?

according to this Manual

https://optlasersgrav.com/index.php?controller=attachment&id_attachment=56

i am pretty sure you have to connect an other Output to Enable #1 Input (Pin3),
and this Output is the witch Needs to be switched with M10/M11

Thanks, I'll look at this tomorrow as I'm away from the machine now, I'm not entirely sure how to do that but I'll try to work out
