Here is my Laser cutter project, it uses a simple ULN 2003 controller, some cheap stepper motors and a few old scanner parts. It is a project in the making, but I should have it finished in the next few weeks (Uni break)

Happy Hacking!


I just thought I would let everyone know that the Laser cutter has seen some substantial changes - My initial thoughts on using the ULN2003 controllers turned out to be ok for hard-coded solutions (pre programmed cuts, etc) however after looking into controlling both steppers at the same time my only real option was to use Easy Drivers.

I managed to pick up a few BigEasyDrivers from a local supplier, so some day when I am back in Australia I will update this video.

For those looking for the parts list, checkout ULN2003 on eBay (there are motor / driver combo's for a few dollars) and Arduino Uno's are a dime a dozen.


When autoplay is enabled, a suggested video will automatically play next.
