Mach3 and PicEngrave5

First time here so go easy on my please.

So I removed my spindle and replaced it with the J Tech 2.8W laser kit. I had a 3.5W Laser with only a TTL on it and could only do black and white engraving.I could not get it to use the PWM.

I'd really like to start doing some greyscale and need some help setting up.

Im looking at the setup and I see where to setup the ports and pins etc. I guess my question is that in PicEngrave5 I see 7 different configurations for firing the laser, so what configuration should I use for grayscale image burning and how do i set it up?

I've used the TTL Laser with good success using the PicConvert driver assy and the Z axis on/off. Do I use the PicConvert with the Laser driver?


Thanks :shock:

With PicEngrave Pro 5 you can use the A axis in the Analog/PWM engraving profile. Let us know if you have anymore questions.
