I have a up and working DIY laser that uses a Woodpecker camxtool V3.4 3 axis GRBL 1.1f controller with a Atmel ATMEGA328P. I installed limit switches and they work as limits, but I get no movement when I ask the machine to home. Then after some time of no machine movement it goes into homing alarm. So I did a bunch of reading and came to the conclusion that the preloaded info on the controller is telling the Z axis to move first. I don’t have a Z axis to find!
So I did some more reading and It appears that I need to update my Configuration.h file to comment out Z home and comment in X and Y only. Or can this be done from lightburn? I have Z axis disabled in the lightburn settings!!
Now my question is can I get the .h file off of the controller or do I need to find a file on the net, edit it, compile it and upload it? If so I guess I need to install an Arduino IDE?
Now the big question, what files do I pick from the net? I’m guessing it has to be one for GRBL1.1f? Is it posable that if I install a new file that it might be missing some of the features that the original file might have?
I guess there is no turning back, without access to the original file installed by the manufacture of the controller?
Here are my settings:
