RES: RES: [diy_3d_printing_and_fabrication] Re: Driving XY galvos from Gcode
I’ll be copying this message to the group, cause you replied to myself only.
Mach3 doesn’t create gcode on its own, you gotta use the wizards or other CAM software to do that. It will follow the strategy created by the CAM software, no matter if it’s raster, offset, spiral, morphed spiral, etc… Mach3 is an amazing software, totally customizable. I’ve seen really crazy machines controlled by mach3, that’s why I’m wondering if it could control a laser show device…

I think mach could do the job fine in sending stepper signal out but how you will turn the laser on and off and keep synchronization betwen laser and galvos? Let say you want to move the laser from point A to B and tunn laser off and on 500 times to create 500 dots on resin. Betwen these point you have to switch the laser on and off really fast. Can you use mach some output signal such as the spindle of something similar?. is mach capable of creating raster movement?. Again my knowledge of mach is very limited..
