Help! I am at a total loss

I am at my wits end. I can get the machine to engrave in easel, but every time I try lightburn it shoots to the bottom left and just keeps trucking.

G10 L2 P1 X-750 Y-750

I have a couple orders I need done soon and want to use lightburn. Please help.

Have you homed the machine?

Yes, I Home every time.

Do you have rotary mode enabled, by chance? (Tools > Rotary setup)

If not, after homing, type ? in the console and post what the laser outputs. Also $# (and post those too).


I don’t know how to set up rotary, but here is the outputs you wanted…

Does not agree with your previous statement:

G10 L2 P1 X-750 Y-750

That G54 line shows the workspace offset, and it should be the -750’s you wrote before, so it looks like that offset isn’t applied. If you used the machine in CNC mode and didn’t put the offset back after zeroing to a workpiece, that would do it. In LightBurn, you basically zero to the front-left of the machine itself, instead of the front-left of the work.

Got it figured out, it was the g10 thing. Thank you!
