Thanks, Curt. So what you’re saying is that for my 2.8w laser, I should set the board to 2.5w output, turn the pot down and focus the laser for whatever my focal length will be, then turn the pot up, and just let the M106 command control the output over its full range from that point on. I shouldn’t have to change the jumpers or mess with the pot again unless I change focal length, right?

Makes sense to me. Does anyone know of a reason not to do it this way?
