I received my enclosure kit from Watterott and noticed the two areas for where the laser mount was not cut out for servos, just steppers. In addition the kit contained one two piece support for the laser which is attached with zip ties. I contacted Watterott and was informed "the new version is without the servo, because the FabScan software is not supporting the servo"

I am really confused now as I thought the newest version supported ONE servo and from pictures I see the servo mount is made of 4 pieces of wood and does fit on a servo.

This is not good.

I guess my question is which is the newest version?  Is it using servos or steppers. I need to know how to build up the HAT board.

Also not sure how to obtain the BETA software as I do want to use 2 lasers.

Thank you - Alan

you dont need steppers or servor for the laser. Show in the German thread.

All you have to do is change the following in the file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/fabscanpi.list:

deb http://archive.fabscan.org/ stable main

by

deb http://archive.fabscan.org/testing main

replace.

After that

sudo apt-get update && apt-get upgrade
