Lightburn will not start burning from origin point

On my OLP2 I am trying to burn some coasters. I am trying to set the job origin at current position - Center, center. (Trying to insure I am at the center of the coaster to keep the design centered). I have measured where I need the starting position to be and set it on the Move to Position. I home the laser and then click it to go to the set position using the “Go to Origin” button. But when I try to start the burn, I get the “Cut might be out of bounds” popup. Not sure why I am getting this as I have not budged the laser out of position from where lightburn is setting it. But when I tell it Yes, I get the following code and nothing happens.

Ortur Laser Master 2 Pro S2 Ready!
OLF:OLF 187.

What am I doing wrong? Why will this not start burning?

There’s nothing wrong with these messages so should be okay from that perspective.

I didn’t see anything wrong with the listed steps but did have one question.

Can you elaborate on what you mean by this? I assume one of the centers is referring to job center but wasn’t clear on the other center.

After homing, what is the reported position of the laser in Move window?

Can you run these commands in Console after homing and return results?


The return I get from your commands are as follows:

As for the center center comment, this is how I have Lightburn set to the center, center position for the “Start From” And I have Current Position selected.

I don’t see anything odd in your settings.

I’m rereading your original post to see if I’ve missed anything.

How exactly are you doing this? Are you ever pushing the “Set Origin” button?

Based on an exact reading I’m wondering if you’re never actually setting a user origin. “Go to Origin” will go to the position established in “Set Origin”.

I had clicked on the Set Origin button and if I click on the “Go to Origin” button, the head will move there (x=43 y=44). And if I click on the “Home” button, it will return to zero. I can do this repeatedly. But as soon as I try to burn (Click “Start”) in either position, I get the “out of bounds…” popup and clicking yes does not do anything regardless of where it was when I hit it.

In that case check to see if you have any objects outside of the workspace. Use Ctrl-Shift-A and it will zoom to show you all objects.

If that doesn’t work can you take a full screenshot of LightBurn or upload your .lbrn file for review?

Thank you. That lead me to the issue. I had a circle on a layer that was not set to output so it was very light and I did not realize it. That was taking it beyond the boundries.
