I’m looking to change the controller in my K40 to a duet controller.
As the duet is designed to be controlled exclusively through the web control panel and not through USB, one of the features that would be missing is being able to “frame” an output before cutting it.
Would it be possible to add the extents of the item to be laser cut as a comment at the beginning of the gcode? Maybe through 2 sets of co-ordinates? e.g. X10 Y50, X100 Y90?
This can then be implemented in the firmware so a feature can be added to “frame” the output to ensure the material being cut is in the correct position.
