Setup: Linux 16.04, LB 0.9.09 (version of 10th Dec)
When I upgraded to 0.9.09, I lost control over the power settings on my laser: When cutting a line, the Laser does not fire until I set the power >=50%. When setting the power >=50% the Laser fires with 100% power during cutting moves. So it is all or nothing which is a bit anoying.
I traced the problem down to the gcode generation: When I enter power vaues lower than 50% the power as set in the gcode by the “S” modifier is 0, and jumps to 100% at >=50%
My suspicion is, that the new feature:
“Reduced output decimals for GCode grayscale on GRBL machines to save bandwidth”
results in too few digits being send to the machine (or saved in gcode).
When I use the old version of LB (before 0.9.08), the problem disappeared, and I can happily score paper at 0.5% current over the laser threshold.
Please continue to allow this fine control over the Laser power, thanks
