Bryan, are you referring to the x and y drivers? When I set them up in the begginning they were taking on 24v. This is my setup and yes I have looked into the fact that there is 0-12v out of fan control on ramps and I dont believe that me moving my current laser pwm control to fan location will work. http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-84-8KpcR0vY/U-UAoggAaII/AAAAAAAAEp4/aYj0-6NZ8HY/s1600/CO2LaserRampsHookup.jpg and http://3dprintzothar.blogspot.com/2014/08/40-watt-chinese-co2-laser-upgrade-with.html.

Last test I ran using piclaser demo here is the code it spit out. the laser comes on completes a very small sqaure, tiny, then stays on while continuing to fire at the given intensities being fed into controller, but will not move correctly. I can see movement after the little square, but only if I watch the teeth on the timing belt of x axis, in which x is moving .01 up to .04 and then back down then repeats??? All I want is to take an image to gcode and print why is this so hard? After looking at this software I dont think it will work for my set up either and they guys over at pic laser have all but given up on me haha.
