Hi all! I recently got a used Full Spectrum 5th Gen laser, and the control board is… haunted. It does random, crazy things when I connect to it from my PC.
My board is the same one shown in:
So there are good posts on the forum to help me out here!
I have a plan 2-stage plan in my head.
Step 1 would be moving the PSU and the (new) control board external to the laser… possibly using a PC case so I can easily get to the wiring. Then use the laser for a while and get used to it.
Step 2 would be expanding the existing cutting area to either the full size of the FS case or a larger custom enclosure.
I’ve got a kind of crazy question though…
Since a lot of the details for swapping the board out seem to be around tracking where the lines go from the FS power supply… would it make it significantly easier if I got a different power supply, since I’m swapping major parts anyway? Or would it be pretty much the same?
