I have the following system:
K40 w/ SBASE controller, home brew Z Table
My issue is I am engraving an aluminum bracket using marking spray held in a fixture that is about 2" tall in combined height.
If I auto home the machine (including the Z axis) and and then set the “material thickness” in Light Burn it will move the X & Y axis first, which if I let it, will collide the head with the part and fixture.
How do I get it to move the Z axis first and THEN move X&Y?
I have looked in both the program’s setting and the config file, to no avail.
Other than the taller material, the system works fine. Home everything, add the material thickness in the job and it politely moves X&Y and then drops the Z the correct amount.
I need it to move Z axis first.
Other than editing and running a G Code file is there a way to change the order?
