Cheap 40W Laser Engraver from China

I have wanted a laser engraver for quite some time but the price has always been prohibitive for me. Recently though, I found some engravers from china on Amazon for about $500.00 USD and free shipping. Plus, I contacted the vendor and found that the unit would ship from California. I read all the reviews and they all agreed that the machine is great. However, the downside of these machines was the software that is included. After carefully considering all the relevant information I decided to purchase one.

Component list -arduino nano clone(or an arduino uno) -6 male to female jumper wires -usb b to mini b cable -smartphone powerbank with usb(or 4 nimh AA) -2 … Read more

Botboarduino drivers

Ok guys it's been a while since I've been on I'm glad everything is picking back up.

I recently had to wipe my computer after getting a virus. Which means I lost all my drivers and code and etc. I managed to get arduino up and running but my botboarduino needs drivers to work. I'm kinda freaked out about catching another virus and I can't seem to find the correct drivers for ft232 uart. I tried one place but it keeps asking me for a password to open it. And when I point the device manager it refuses to see the zip file.
