I’ve finished the assembly of my new XCarve and with it the installation os my PLH3D. It’s almost all new for me, but at some point I think I’m missing something.
The Xcarve is working fine with the Dewalt Spindle, there are just some minor adjusts in the belts and squaring it, but with the laser area things are a little more difficulty.
XController PWM (+/gnd), connected to both the IOT relay and to the laser Analog (+/gnd).
From relay I have an output in 127V to the 12V power supply wich send 12V (+/-) to the Laser.
I’m runninf GRBL ver. 1.1f on XController.
Go to advanced settings and change the following:
Draw anything, and send to carve, the fan turn on when I click at the turn on spindle and when I click carve it start moving but no laser at all.
Tried this about 5 times, even in two different computers and nothing.
Reading many of the materials in Xcarve forum, I’ve seen the LightBurn Software as an option, but downloaded it, installed and set as a GRBL controller, with an 1000mm x 1000mm area and go to the working area. Different from the easel, it doesn’t find the XController and all the time say it’s disconnected. Tried on a second computer and the same error.
I usuaaly don’t give up easily, but I’ve read many forums and lots of youtube videos, much of them have different setups, with and older XController or without the IOT relay but couldn’t find an answer. I’ve asked twice in the inventables forum how to setup for some guys who post many things, but no answer.
So i’ve decided to come here and ask for some help. The only difference from your setup instruction is the iot relay, wich I don’t think is the problem once the fan runs when it should.
Thanks a lot!
