Well that make sense! Thanks Peter. I'll give it a shot tonight and let you know.
That was it Peter, though I don't remember ever setting it in the first place.
Curious if a XYZ Touch probe Wizard will be added by default (I realize a macro can be setup)
Also any way to allow Z raise during a pause. (as an option). being able to change a broken bit mid program would be nice in certain cases.
yes: see X and Y probing (Community demands) · Issue #79 · OpenBuilds/OpenBuilds-CONTROL - I know we keep saying soon, but it really is soon!
There was a good reason we don't allow moves during pause, but I cannot remember what it was... I'll get back to you if I recall, have to go look at some old comments in the code / old issues
I am not sure if I am in the right place to ask. Total noob here. I just finished getting my machine together last night. I found this thread searching for soft limits. Is there a way to set those in control?
Yes there is:
Start CONTROL, connect to your machine, click Grbl Settings tab (assume you already loaded a machine profile), scroll down to further customise the default profile > Refer to gnea/grbl
You'd have to make sure to set $20, but it depends on having $22, $130, $131 and $132 correctly set too. The Grbl Wiki is a goldmine of information, have a read through it for bedtime
Just watched the new Jtech install video. I have had mine up and running for a little while now using vcarve/lightburn and I never knew I had to remove the relay jumper but I have never noticed any issues either. Should I remove it now? What will this benefit?
Also I noticed that in the openbiulds control they switch to “Openbuilds 1010 with laser module” again something I never have done. Is this to keep the Z locked during the burn? Does it switch the machine’s 32 from 0 to 1 or 1 to 0?
It will eventually wear out the relay, so it is good to remove it if you can. The clicking is also quite annoying when you do grayscale work. Of course if all you do is 100% power vector jobs it just clicks at start and end of a section.
It changes a few settings from the default LEAD1010 profile, to optimize for laser use:
Will the laser module disable Z movement during the burn?
Can the replay be left out when going back into cnc mode?
Very new to laser engraving, very new on OpenBuilds world, very new in all this stuff..... Just assembled my laser engraver...runned some tests and I have the toolpath and various mark points on the surface. Can anyone help me in how I get rid of it? How can I configure correctly the machine to print only the image on the surface (the surface is a piece of wood - pinus)...tks
As I've said, very new on this stuff...problem solved configuring GRBL PARAMETER "LASER MODE ENABLE" as true.
I think it's good to share because of future people struggling with the same problem
