I should first say that I do not have a “laser” machine.
I have a CNC with a laser attachment. (X carve 750 with a JTech 7 watt)
I use Picsender for all of my CNC work. (great program)
For all my laser work, I use Lightburn. (again a top notch program)
In Picsender, I can set my XYZ zero to anywhere I want and then click
a to zero the machine. (perfect)
I have come to learn that lasers always start from and go back to their
home position. (which is I think in the upper left or right corner of the machine)
((It really doesn’t matter to me))
In my CNC world, I do not “home” my machine.
When I put a project on the bed of the machine, I physically locate the
XYZ coordinates and then set that to the zero position. (in Picsender)
In the beginning I had a lot of problems with my machine not having
repeatability in finding and or starting from the XYZ zero location.
When I start Laserburn, and click on the “get current positon” it is
always off location.
Finally Oz suggested that I move the machine to my XYZ position and
then shut off the software and restart it. (kind of a time consuming
work around, but it works)
I know that Lightburn is designed for the dedicated laser machine.
However, I and many others have CNC machines with lasers attached.
With all the problems that I had in the beginning relative to my laser
not being able to find and or go back to the XYZ zero point.
Is there any way that a button could be added to “re-set” the XYZ zero home
position to where the machine is at the current time?
