I would like to share a piece of software that I have found that can take your laser control to the next level. It took me a little over a year to discover it and I sure wish that I had known about it sooner as it gives you a lot more control over the power that you can burn at. It s called T2Laser and sells for $39.95 but you can use the trial version in 20 minute burns or 10,000 lines of code to try it out before you buy. I learned to use it in about 30 minutes from this Youtube video.

Cool. What laser are you using? Does this work with these 2 wire mini lasers? It says it is Grbl based and the boards in these are not quite at that level without changing out the board and laser or upgrading to something like an A3 as far as I could tell. I remember looking at Grbl based stuff a few weeks ago and concluding it wasn’t an option. If it is, that would be great. This video is on youtube about how to upgrade a mini laser’s hardware but it was a pretty tedious job as these controller boards don’t speak arduino/grbl.
