Assembling an Ortur 2 engraving machine and installing an Endurance 10 watt Delux laser
There are two types of Ortur frames on the market
TOP SALES! The best laser head for your 3D printer / CNC machine / engraving frame.
If you have a big frame then any Endurance laser can be installed.
If you have a small frame we recommend using an 8.5 watt PRO since it has lighter weight.
A small frame can not carry 10 watt units accurately.

A problem with an Ortur laser
The fundamental problem with an Ortur 5500 mw (5.5 watt) laser head PWM. PWD does not work properly with duty ratio less than 25% which will not allow making a nice photo engraving with the Ortur LM2 basic laser.
Wiring the Endurance lasers to the Ortur LM2 board
Black = Ground Red = 12v blank White = PWM
the wire must go there
so in your case you need a cable that is Black – Blank – Blank – White for pwm signal
Upgraded frame and a new kitchen!

Etch, engrave, mark all types of metals without engraving paste!
10 watt Delux laser installed on Ortur frame
Finally had a chance to build my engraving workstation.The 10 Watt laser SE “DeLux” is working great. Waiting on a G2 lens to do some metal engraving. I did rewire the laser setup. Just did not work for me being permanently wired. Appreciate all the info shared that makes DIY possible. It is very rewarding in the end.
Installing a new laser on Ortur – troubleshooting video
Original Ortur lenses make a terrible laser beam spot in focus.
The laser beam spot in focus is 300 x 11 um.
That is why laser cutting is very uneffective and laser engraving is also poor.
URGENT – about Ortur defective mainboard
The defective board has some voltage on the PWM pin even when the laser board is not powered and only connected via USB from a computer. That turns on the Endurance laser on full power.
