The folks over at Buildlog have developed a complete interface and stepper driver solution for a DIY laser cutter that’s compatible with Mach3, EMC2 and more.
This [is] the new Laser Interface PCB. It adds a lot of new features including the stepper motor drivers. This board is designed to reduce the wiring requirement of a home build laser cutter/engraver. This should significantly reduce the cost of a laser cutter. If you use this with EMC2 (free) you should be controlling your laser for less than $100.
Check out the video above and the blog post for more details.
The board will be on sale in 1-2 weeks.
