Adding Z axis (A-axis) rotary system on a CNC 3018 router

Using a spindle pin for laser engraving.

 

  1. Use the Y motor pin for the rotary system.
  2. Add 10-50 ohm resistors on the spindle pin.
  3. Connect the laser to the spindle pin.
  4. Run a g-code using GRBL control software (check our download center for software >>>)

 

 

Keep in mind that there is no standalone PWM pin on the spindle pin, just use “+” and “-“.

Also, PWM has a high frequency on Woodpecker GRBL 0.9 board that is why some lasers might not work properly.

You need to reassemble a GRBL and setup ower PWM frequency and upload it on your Woodpecker GRBL 0.9 board or just use an Eleksmaker Mana board and connect it to your CNC 3018 router.
