This is my take on the K40 upgrades.
This build will contain a 60x30 cm cutting area, a MKS or SKR controllerboard, LED, Painting, PSU aso. Keep posted as now it will be more as a blog then a guide
Basert heavily on this, K40 12x24in rebuild (In Original Case)
This is some pictures during disassembly
And now, for painting White inside for brighter working space.
And Black/Blue for looks (not that fancy, but hey.. i like it )
I have ordered controller board, openbuild aluminium and wheels.. i've 3d-printed all files i need..
So when stuff starts to arrive i will keep this updated.
Is some will notice, i have a really old and not-so-well documented powersupply boards, so there will be some trial and error before i have the new controller board up and running, but the criteria is PWM controll of the tube, safety switches and possibility to use lightburn instead of coreldraw.
So.. thanks for the read so far
Cheap chinese K40 laser upgrades, including 60x30cm working area, MKS or SKR controllerboard (smoothieware or marlin, not yet decided.) Light, psu and a bit more :)

Reason for this BuildI buildt this to get a bigger working area and to be able to use lightburn software. On the way i included led lights and some other mods
