You can then control the laser from your G-code using M106 P1, like so… M106 P1 S0 ; Laser off (P1 = 2nd fan output) M106 P1 S128 ; Laser at 50% M106 P1 S255 ; Laser at 100% NOTE: You can use Fan0 if it is available, in which case you will not need to define the above. As of this edit, Marlin can control up to 3 fans via M106/M107.
Marlin Firmware Open Source 3D Printer Driver. First created in 2011 for RepRap and Ultimaker by Erik van der Zalm et. al., today Marlin drives most of the world's 3D printers. Reliable and precise, Marlin delivers outstanding print quality while keeping you in full control of the process.
· Marlin-based Laser Cutter/Engraver Firmware. This repository holds the firmware for a laser cutter/engraver based on Marlin software ( version 1.0.0 ) and RepRap compatible hardware.
· I am stuck. I thought I could just use Marlin firmware to control the custom 3d printed laser cutter. I had seen some fellas use one of those chinese laser cutters and converted it with ramps 1.4. I was thinking I could just adjust the settings and use the fan D10 connection to control the laser di
· I am working with Prusa, Marlin and RAMPS 1.4, and my laser is controled with a driver board TTL capable, As far as I know, RAMPS's fan wire could be used to send TTL signal, with a tension divider (2 resistor 7kohm+5kohm), to take 5v from 12 v fan output of RAMPS. Then I shoul need to remap (in Gcode? firmware?) some pin for that laser control.
LCD Controller. Marlin includes support for several controllers. The two most popular controllers supported by Marlin are: REPRAP_DISCOUNT_SMART_CONTROLLER A 20 x 4 character-based LCD controller with click-wheel. REPRAP_DISCOUNT_FULL_GRAPHIC_SMART_CONTROLLER A monochrome 128 x 64 pixel-based LCD controller with click-wheel. Able to display ...
· The firmware is the link between software and hardware, it interprets commands from the G code file and controls the motion accordingly. The firmware configuration is unique to your printer. It knows the properties of the 3D printer, like the dimensions or heating settings. It plays a major role in the quality of the print.
