I have a CNC Plasma with a 3.5 X 2m bed
It has a 105A hypertherm plasma cutter and an air scribe
The Y axis (long axis) is driven by dual clearpath servo’s
The X and Y is driven by single clearpath servos
All the clearpath servos have integrated step/dir drivers
I have also added a second controller
All the I/O signals and the stepper output can be switched between the Plasma Controller (start ccm4) and the router controller (RichAuto DSP B58)
When in router mode I remove the bracket holding the plasma torch and scribe and replace it with a 2.2kw spindle.
What im looking to do is add a 3rd controller to do laser engraving
Im looking at the LaserTree K30 and the Cohesion3D LaserBoard
The C3d board would be directly connected to the servo’s (via step/dir output), laser and limit switches
I was intending to then use lightburn to do the tooling
I guess my question is will the C3D care that bed is 3.5mx2m?
