I have just installed a Jtech 7W laser on my X-Carve CNC.
I’m having problems with LightBurn not being able to move the axes very well when using the buttons on the move dialog.
The CNC is working fine. Under the UGS Platform, the gantry moves as normal using the original GRBL settings.
While using LightBurn I have changed the GRBL settings for the laser as described in the JTech website.
Using LighBurn, the machine homes OK, but after homing the axes either don’t move or move once. For example, I can move the Y-Axis towards home, but not away (left and right arrows respectively). The Z-axis does not move at all using the buttons, and I do have Allow Z movement set in the LB configuration.
Fun fact: using the Frame button does make the CNC work delineating the engraving area as expected. Also using the console to send gcode move commands works for all axes in all directions as expected.
I was able to make a simple engraving positioning the starting point manually. So it seems that the problem is solely in the use of the arrow keys on the “Move” dialog.
If you have any ideas or have seen the problem before, please let me know.
Running latest LightBurn 0.9.09 on Windows 10 and GRBL 1.1f.
