Laser Control? and GRBL?



  • Hello World,

    Last year, and before, there was some wind blowing around about the implication of laser control to the Duet. I would very much like to use the superior Duet hardware for my upcoming laser cutter
    Is there any update on this front?

    Some background:
    Grbl's laser mode prevents unnecessary stops whenever possible and adds a new dynamic laser power mode that automagically scales power based on current speed related to programmed rate.
    But as far as my knowledge, the RepRap firmware can't interpret the produced GRBL flavored G-codes.(?)

    Kindest regards,
    Jakwiebus

    Do you mean G1 commands that use the S parameter to control laser power? If so then that's supported in current stable firmware (2.02).
