Summary {{{Summary}}}

I bought a TS6090 100W laser cutter made bij Merknaam:JIN ZHI YIN. As you would expect with a cheap china lasercutter the controlling hardware (and software) is a bit crappy.

Controller board of TS6090, Lihuiyu M2 Nano

Current controller is a Lihuiyu M2 Nano, used in many cheap chinese lasers.

So I want to upgrade the 'brains' of the machine with a MKS board (clone of smoothieboard). You need the folling parts (prices are indication of cost, no shipping, tax etc.)

  • MKS board ($45.59)
  • LCD screen ($4.80) The package deals with touch screens doesn't work in these configs.
  • Rotary encoder ($1.28 ) for menu control.
  • 2 Optocouplers $0.50 a piece, needed for laser power.

TODO

  • make nice plate for LCD and rotary encoder
  • replace legs of laser cutter, they are really flimsy. Plan is to make a cabinet to put the laer on.
