I am having issues with the Z-axis function. The Auto-focus function works properly, and I can set the focus from lightburn, however the Z-axis up and down function does not seem to work on lightburn for my machine. The odd thing is that I see the Z-axis coordinates updating, but the honeycomb tray is not moving. (it moves during autofocus, but not during jog.)
If I go back to my panel on the laser, and press the Up and Down buttons it moves my Z-axis. (the weird thing is that is is listed as a U-axis for up and down buttons on the controller touch panel) Am I missing something? Z-axis moves the honeycomb, and U axis is for Rotary (as far as I understand).
I am trying to adjust my z-axis height for better cutting, and I am finding it impossible since I cannot adjust my Z-axis. Once autofocus is set, I cannot force the Z-axis position beyond the new “0” that gets calculated.
Please help as I have been spending 3 days trying to figure this out.
