Buildlog.net Laser Interface/Driver PCB

The folks over at Buildlog have developed a complete interface and stepper driver solution for a DIY laser cutter that’s compatible with Mach3, EMC2 and more.

This [is]  the new Laser Interface PCB.  It adds a lot of new features including the stepper motor drivers.   This board is designed to reduce the wiring requirement of a home build laser cutter/engraver.  This should significantly reduce the cost of a laser cutter.  If you use this with EMC2 (free) you should be controlling your laser for less than $100.

Check out the video above and the blog post for more details.

The board will be on sale in 1-2 weeks.
