I have now just upgraded my Neje Max 2S to the Max 3. I am as yet unable to update the firmware as both Neje software and Neje Grbl Uploader will not connect to the new board. The problem is when I install the Neje newest version software it homes to the ‘Front LEFT’ fails and then the software quits. the Grbl uploader says device not recognized.
I have turned OFF Auto Home in Lightburn and have manually configured “home” in the move tab - so I can start up lightburn and actually work with the laser.
I have set back left for home position. I have configured Origin to be back left.
Is there anything other than a firmware update I can do to set it to home back left? Just wondering if I may have missed any steps… I did run it last night and the head moves a LOT faster now and I did cut out a circle without issue … just can’t home it properly
Thank You All for the replies. I did manage to correct the issue with the help of Neje support last night. When I received the new board there were NO INSTRUCTIONS with it. After going back and forth several times support sent me two images side by side of old and new board. I noted that the cable positions had been changed! So after I swapped Y-L and Y-R all is working exactly as it should be the laser now homes properly and I have confirmed the firmware is up todate as well as running the newest versions of the software. Thanks all for taking the time. I have however noticed something I did not see previously, on starting lightburn and connecting to the com port - it will tell me the device is NOT IN GRBL Mode so I have to unplug from USB and Power - plug power - plug USB and it then comes online in lightburn.
