A plugin for Laser engraving add
This is a basic plugin to work with a Laser Engraver. Printing from the OctoPrint interface with this plugin can turn your 3D printer into a laser engraver!
- M3 <p>: Turns ON the laser with power <p>
- M4 <p>: Turns ON the laser with power 255-<p>
- M5: Turn OFF the laser
The laser power can go from 1 (min) to 255 (MAX)
NOTE: It’s highly suggested to add an M400 - Finish Moves before the M3, M4 and M5 commands.
How to Use
Step 0) Install the plugin
Step 1) Connect the Laser driver to pins GPIO18 and GND
Step 2) Create a GCode using the described commands
Step 3) Print using Octoprint
Have fun :)
Oh, almost forgot, I’m not responsible for you hurting yourself with your cool laser, but please use it with caution.
