Hi Guys. I’ve only just joined but I’ve been trying to use Lighburn on my home build machine with a Ruida RDC6442 controller for a good few hours now and am getting nowhere with my problems. I would describe myself as ‘lost’!
My machine has a work area of 650 x 500mm. I have limit switches on both axis and I can get the rails to stop when I press the switches. So far so good. However, I have the origin set as the front LH corner but if I ask it to ‘home’ it goes to the opposite corner (rear RH) and basically crashes. Both stepper drivers lose sync and lock out until I recycle power to the machine to reboot them. This also happens if I use the ‘set laser position’ with the cursor to place it in or around the centre of my work area on screen.
So, first question is how do I tell it I want to home to the rear LH corner and not the right? I can’t find anything in the docs or online. The second question would relate to the positioning error. What is going on there?
I also note that the LCD display powers up it shows values for XYZ as 10,000, 10,000 and 3,000mm respecively. That’s big! But what does it refer to??
