Don’t worry, I’ve had my fair share of headaches with every new element. As long as you’re willing to learn, there are many people here and in the community that are glad to help you along the way.

I am unfamiliar with the K40 lasers, but I do give you this word of caution: understand what input voltage your laser driver expects, and do not blow it! The D9 pin for the fan connector on the RAMPS 1.4 supplies a TTL signal from 0 to 12V. So make sure that your driver can handle this before you switch it. Leo69 has a well written guide that is on the front page that may be of use.
