Aspire and Laser

Postby daibeer » Fri Oct 13, 2017 5:00 pm

Hi all,
Can anyone tell me how the laser when fitted, knows how to turn on and off when cutting or burning. The videos I have watched just shows it getting connected to a power supply and off it goes so I am puzzled. Also, can you use Aspire with a Laser to cut and burn?
Thanks
Dave

I am not familiar with your machine - but I visited the manufactures site and I do not see an option to use a laser with your CNC. Other manufacturers process the laser through the system controlled for the CNC.
However, you must create file that is comparable with the laser. Aspire is capable of creating files that can be used with a laser but depending on the interface the Aspire file may require a translation for the laser to engrave or cut.

Go to Peter Passullo's Youtube page and look for his CNC laser video. I Used it to hook min up. You use a post processor to turn the laser on and off . CNC nutz is channel name I think.
