G-CODE G90, SCANNING OFFSET ADJUST


(Andris) #1

Hello

I’ve purchased a g-code license, the program is very good.
2 things you would like to find out.
1:
I use a program for engraving,
I need to engrave the “tape measure” on the aluminum profile.
Nowhere to find how to save g-code with G90 (Absolute cords)
G91 doesn’t work for me because there is an error on the 3m engraving

2:
I’m not clear about “SCANNING OFFSET ADJUST”
my machine’s line offset error is not linear
entering 6 entries in table “SCANNING OFFSET ADJUST”
10mm/sec = 0.150
30mm/sec = 0.445
50mm/sec = 0.665
100mm/sec = 1.100
120mm/sec = 1.300
150mm/sec = 1.590

  • calculation wrong line offset

“An error”? Could you elaborate?

LightBurn uses G91 for scanning because the code tends to be much smaller, and I internally track the precision errors caused by rounding and account for them. If you are using normal cuts, or a series of scans, and using Absolute Coords as the mode, LightBurn will emit G90 / absolute moves in between, then flip to G91 / relative moves for scans within the job.

I’m not sure what you’re getting at with the scanning errors. You’ve provided two tables of numbers, but haven’t told me what they mean, and I’m not sure what the sample GCode is supposed to represent. What are you trying to show here?
