  • Benbox with Eleks Laser Engraver (GearBest /Banggood)

    If your software works with firmware different from GRBL 0.9 (ex.BenBox) you need to flash the original firmware (how ... is software dependent, check the installation manual)Remember that GRBL 0.9 uses a Laser control output different from BenBox or GRBL 0.8. Because it worksin PWM, i.e. manages the laser power and does not go always at full power.The boards Eleks L7 have a specific jumper beneath the processor to select the output.Best regardsCarlo

    If the objects are http://www.banggood.com/it/2-Axis-Stepper-Motor-Dr... and http://www.ebay.it/itm/2-Axis-Stepper-Motor-Driver... are Eleks L7 boards, so are OK !!! Exacly the board I use on BenBox Laser machine.At the moment there is a pre-release of GRBL ver 1.1, but developers are not shure it works in Arduino Nano hardware. From my first test (today) seems designed for Arduino due (32 bit CPU) wich is not compatible with standard shields. (use 3.3V interface instead of 5V). So.... don't worry, and use Eleks board, the best Cost/Benefit ratio.Carlo

    BenBox Laser arrive with ELEKS L7 integrated board. But I tested and works with Arduino Uno with CNC Shield V2 and V3, works with IntegratedCNC (Arduino Nano) by keyestudio (these 2 needs MOSFET Decoupler for Laser) Also works with Arduino uno/due/mega/duemilanove with RAMPS 1.4 (In this case needs Marlin firmware instead of GRBL) But this solution is deprecated, useful only if you want to convert a 3D printer to laser engraver.

  • GearBest laser engraver DIY Kit assembly instructions

    Some time ago I built a Laser Engraver with this GearBest Kit.Unfortunately I have not found a software acceptable and easy to use, so I wrote my own.My software allows to load a picture and send it to the laser engraver quickly and easily.My software is written in a generic way for almost all machines with standard GCode firmawre.At the moment the software is WORK IN PROGRESS currently, in ALPHA testing.As I needed to modulate the laser power (I have a 5500 mW one) I used GRBL firmware version 0.9 (other versions are ON / OFF, 0.9 is PWM)Here the Robot Laser Project page : http://www.robot-eyes.com/en/RobotLaser/I will update soon the page (for now very rough).Please send an email at robotlaser@robot-eyes.com with your opinion, thanks.

    DIY 5500mW Laser Engraver / Cutter

    Hello.I just buyed the Eleks machine and installed Benbox software and seems working,but I can't find any power control. PWM seems not working and also with 10000 (unusable) as speed the power is too much.Also GRBL seems unable to control the power.Anyone know if there is some optical filter to reduce output power?Or there is some way to use PWM ( seems that GRBL ver 0.9 can , but not work!!!)I think not logical buy 200, 500, 800, 1600, 2500 mW lasers in order to change output power changing the laser.
