i3 Prusa converted to laser cutter/engraver
I have been wanting to make a laser cutter for a bit and last winter I got a 5 watt laser head and finally decided to use it. My poor neglected prusa gets to be the victim. I swapped out the hotend/extruder for the laser head and also changed out the controller to a half burnt (Hotbed) Ramps board. Modified the Marlin to not having hotend and hotbed. Still need to get the TTL working fully working.
First test was some Manila card stock
This is on 1/8" Birch plywood, this did not cut thru
