Machine:Full Spectrum 5th Generation Hobby with proprietary RetinaEngrave
Board: Stock Proprietary RetinaEngrave
Firmware: I have a new board Cohesion3D Board and I’m using the Firmware included.
Problem/ Question: I am slowly converting to new Cohesion3D board with Display.
Thanks to all of those that have posted information about their conversion previously. I just wish some of those people had come back and posted more pictures. In order to help others I am posting pictures of my conversion.
FS 5th Gen Original Board.
New Cohesion3D board mounted

Optical Sensor Wiring Done and Installed ?
The show so far…
I believe I am down to the actual laser control.
This is where I am being careful.
Looking at the “Unofficial Wiring Document of the Gen 5 " I noticed a few differences between my board and the wiring document”.
I am looking at the “Blue” wire coming from the actual laser in the wiring diagram. I am not entirely sure where it should go to the Cohesion3D board since it is Labeled “Laser tube Gnd”.
Should it go to to the “-” of the Laser Pwr on the Cohesion3D board ?
should the “Orange” wire that was on the FS board go the “+” of the Laser Pwr on the Cohesion3D board ?
Looking at the only picture I could find of a previous conversion shows a “Green” wire going to the first connector labeled “PMW” and two “Black” wires going to “-”… At least it looks like that…
