Yes, I’ve had the same conundrum. Being able to define the laser start position after LB start up would be a boon. I’ve simply resigned myself to restarting the software when I forget to reset the laser. I’ve used the “Set Origin” button to no avail, but not tried the “set user origin”. I will try this.
Not to highjack the thread, but can LB flash gcode to the control board? Like if I want to change the max speed setting?
The answer is both Yes and No. There are two things here @Tim1. It may simply be the wording you have chosen, so let me break it into its parts.
LightBurn provides a ‘Console’ that allows one to read and write to the controller firmware settings such as “max rate”. You can enter your desired change in the console followed by the ‘Enter’ key.
If you are asking if LightBurn provides a way to upgrade/update or completely change the firmware “installed” on your controller (not change settings as shown above), no there is not a way to “flash” your controller within LightBurn. If you are looking to replace your currently installed firmware, you will need to “flash” it using an external tool.
