I have a wierd set up, where all my settings are set in mm, but i have to use Cm to get what I am after. If i was to set my bed size to 500mm by 400mm then my laser will keep going out of bounds, so I have set it for 50mmx40mm and it works fine. Also my speed is at 120 etc, where I think it should be at 1200.
I have a diode Laser with unbranded set up
You did not say what controller you are running. But it sounds like you have not got your machine setup correctly. Specifically Travel resolution or “Steps per mm” it sounds like you are off by a factor of 10. If you are running GRBL the parameter numbers are $100 for X and $101 for Y.
But there is no point in going into great detail how to fix it until we know what you are running.
Please let us know
Super, I will give that a try in a bit, as I am running something atm.
also, i swapped my laser to the other side of the X axis, now when I move the laser i have to use the opposite buttons, also it inverts my image, do you know what I need to change to get it back right again please??
so it sorted the invert out and the stepss/mm which was suggested above. However im getting lot of weird other things happening. the movement speed is really slow, the laser seems to slow down alot before it hits the end and the laser takes a sec before coming back on and gradullay too.
