Have you ever thought of putting together a laser plotter using a Raspberry Pi CNC Hat? We do precisely this in our project today. Ill introduce you to an XY table, which is the basis of this “printer, which serves both to record and cut certain materials, and involves the whole assembly process in the mechanical part.
For our project, we use a 15-watt laser. Also, well use the GRBL, but in a different way, as itll be with the Raspberry Pi 3. And instead of using an Arduino Uno, as is usually the case, well use a Hat from Protoneer (Electronic Prototyping Specialists), which is like a Shield for the Raspberry.”
