i have a chinese laser engraver. it is mounted to a bed with x and y axis motors. what i want to do is the following.
i want to take the laser off the kit and keep it in a fixed position on a machine. i would like to add 2 sensors to the kit. lets name these sensor 1 and sensor 2. sensor 1 will be attached to the main shaft of my machine using a sensor and a wheel. sensor 2 will go behind the back of machine head.
when sensor 2 is blocked it will activate the laser but not fire anything. now as sensor 1 is on a shaft that rotates, when the sensor is blocked it will not fire however when rotating it will fire the laser.
how do i go about setting something like this up. i really want to do this and need some guidance. the laser i have is one of the chinese cnc built laser engraver cutter you get off aliexpress.
any one got any idea how i go about achieving this?
