Will this laser work?

I have a laser that I picked up from Creality to play with on my 3D printer. I was wondering if it will work with the Engravinator. Here is the laser I’m talking about: https://www.creality3dofficial.com/products/creality-blue-violet-light?_pos=1&_sid=098f37e3b&_ss=r

My first guess is that it won’t work as it is only a two-wire laser but I thought I would ask anyway. Thanks for any help. :slight_smile:

Is it only 2 wire? They connected 2 separate 2-wire connections… or were they just reconnecting one?
If it is only 2 wire then definitely not. If it has separate power and signal… solid “maybe”. It looks like it has a 16x40mm mounting hole pattern on the back so at least that’s right… but you’ll need to measure it.

The mounting pattern is correct I threw it on temporarily just to have something there. As for the connection, I’m not really sure. This is my first foray into lasers.

Here is an image of the laser module with the fan wires and power/ground coming out. https://photos.app.goo.gl/4bpTXGPcuPzMPXde7

I’m assuming right now that I will need to get a different laser module but I was also holding out a little hope that I didn’t. LOL.

Ok, so there are only 2 wires for connecting the laser? In that case, sorry, but it won’t work.

That’s what I suspected. Thanks for confirming.
