I received my 2.8w laser kit yesterday, and have started working on mounting it and setting it up. I have a few questions:

1. Where are people mounting the driver? Should it be mounted on the z tower somewhere, close to the laser, or should I extend the wires and mount the driver somewhere else, like near my ramps LCD?
2. Where do I connect on the ramps board?
3. Can I use the piclaser software with this setup (ramps + marlin), or do I need the DAC/PWM board advertised on JTP’s site?

Any help is greatly appreciated!
