D1 with a 40W laser module.
There is no doubt that the 40W laser module can be used on the D1 Pro machine. But you may wonder: is it also compatible with the D1 machine? The answer is YES. In this article, we will discuss some frequently asked questions about D1 and the 40W laser module.
Sure. The way you install the 40W laser module on the D1 Pro is pretty much the same as that of the D1.
Please mind that the frames of the two machine models are different.
If you don't disable the switch, it will trigger the alarm. Please be aware that the laser module may hit the frame if the position limit is off.
The homing function needs to work with the limit switches.
If you put a 40W laser module on a D1, when the module moves to the upper-left corner, it will keep hitting the frame in the Y-axis direction. Hence, we don't recommend that you use the homing function if you put the 40W laser module on a D1.
It's not recommended to do so. Any issue caused by damaging the machine structure intentionally will not be covered by our post-sales customer service.
No. xTool doesn't offer purchase options for frames to assemble a new machine.
No. If you need to change back to the other modules, please change the motherboard at the same time. When you install the 40W upgrade kit on a D1, the laser module connection port on the new motherboard has 9+2 pins and it's not compatible with the other laser modules (2W, 5W, 10W, 20W).
