Ordered my laser last night (the 2.8w kit from J Tech Photonics). How do I get started generating code to drive the laser? Ryan mentioned using ESTLCAM, which I use for carving already. Do I need to modify the resulting gcode to make it work with the laser? Also, do I need to make changes to Marlin to incorporate the laser? Does the laser come with a wiring diagram of how to connect it to the ramps for control? So many questions!

I’m working on modifying the laser mount on thingiverse to fit my DW660 mount.

With at least two folks with new lasers, this might end up becoming The Big Laser Thread!
