I am so excited to be a part of this community now
Very quick background: I have had my XCarve for the last couple of years and am very comfortable with using the CNC and software VCarve, Picsender, and Easel. I recently purchased a small Ortur laser device and a Lightburn license with it. I am pretty comfortable with using the software and the small machine too. Last week, I decided to upgrade and purchased a 7-watt JTech laser kit, receive it yesterday, followed all instructions, and installed in on my XCarve. I am on Grbl 1.1H version on my machine.
First, Lightburn detected my machine and successfully installed it BUT I have no luck getting the origins and movements to work. To give you an example, I can successfully home the machine to the bottom left of the board with Lightburn but any mother movements would go haywire and hit the sides and completely wrong (i.e. G0 X2 Y2). I read an article/posting about setting the negative offset to resolve the issue but am wondering why others who used the same software on the same type of machine did not have to do anything like this? What am I doing wrong? Any suggestions? I am so anxious to get my machine up and running and would appreciate your help and suggestions.
