Introduction: CNC Laser Engraver With GRBL and Arduino

In this series of videos i will show you how i made my own CNC laser Engraver using a Arduino Loaded with GRBL

Step 1: The Hardware

Step 2: The Software

Here is The Software setup Part , It is less difficult than you think!

    I am using lasergrbl and it is simply GREAT. The only suggestion I have is to include a sound when job finishes :-)

    Some time ago I built a Laser Engraver with 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.

    It is a pitty that you removed the free version of your software without leaving any screens of it running, nor manual or anything that can help evaluate if it is worth the € 30.00 you're asking for it
