Z axis Servo Help - Laser Cutter Addon


New member
Built this universal laser cutter for my wife over covid for crafting cut outs. I now want to add a needle foam board cutter to it for myself. I will be using a servo for the z axis movement and will 3d print my own design for it. Issue I have is there is no documentation for the board I can find. Company has next to no support. I use T2Laser and it has z support. There are servo pins on the board. Im a geek but not a cnc geek lol. Any help appreciated on how to go about this. Just looking for how to actuate the servo between cuts.

Answering my own question... Easiest solution is to just get an ERC TIMSAV board and swap motor connectors between boards. That way I don't screw up the wifes toy lol. this way I can play all I want and no dog house issues. Still open for suggestions if you see a better way... Thanks.

If you are getting a separate board, just as well go all the way. A couple of steppers and rails and you have your own machine. No more swapping.
