Ive come across that link in almost all the answers to my question and Im sure I’ll be using Current Position. Let’s give Absolute Coordinates a chance I guess.
My machine has limit switches for when I use Easel for carving but I dont have it set up to do homing sequence or anything. Usually I just jog it to the bottom left corner of my work piece. With Lighburn Im following the same process and have been following everyones steps(even yours from the answers you give others)
ALARM:2 is a soft limit, meaning you asked the controller to move outside of its travel limits, so something you’re doing is trying to move it out of bounds. If you home the machine, then use Absolute Coords, and your file is entirely within the page bounds in LightBurn, it’ll be within the bounds of the machine as well. With Current Position and User Origin, it’s on you to make sure that the job start + size of the job fits within the bounds of the machine.
Where can I send you a video? Im positive my settings are right, Ive run other jobs before during my practice time with the trial(still got some days left before I use my license for the software) lines, cutting stencils out, raster filling and I had it all “nailed down” Or at least it so I thought until yesterday morning, then nothing worked right.
I see. My $10=115 and when I was changing it back to 0 it would just flip back to 115. I reinstalled EVERYTHING and now its working properly, Slow, but proper. I guess that can happen when switching between EaslePro & Lightburn? Is that something tht happens?
Easel / XCarve will very often reset the settings to what they want, whether you want them to or not. LightBurn never changes firmware settings without you initiating it, because doing so involves an EEPROM / flash memory write, and over time that memory degrades and will eventually require replacing (which usually means the whole controller).
