Machine Settings

Opens an editor that allows reading and writing firmware settings from supported controllers.

and I’ll be able to change value $31 from there?

Correct.

Or you can type into the ‘Console’ window as well.

This will allow you to directly input and execute g-code commands. Enter a g-code command in the text box and pressing return will send it to the connected device.

I have tried to enter new values into the box… …$32=1 (to enable laser) but nothing changes… it just shows the original value… is there something else I’m doing wrong?
