Title: Home button glitch
Post by: micky on May 28, 2018, 10:06:57 AM
I just changed my computer, and I'm running into some very small problems, most of which I have been able to fix.

One problem which is really bugging me, and I know there is a simple solution, is that my laser doesn't home properly. I skips up to the right, and lasers away from where I want it to.

Ive manually centred my laser, then right clicked the home button, but it just keeps skipping to the wrong place on my bench.

Could someone tell me, in laymans terms please, how to fix this?

Thanks so much. Mike.

You mention centering the laser, presumably in the center of the job and with Center (Start Point) selected?

You can use the Trace or Engrave Frame feature to see where it's going to engrave, and check the simulation "view" so you know the relationship of the job to the origin.

Hi Zax. Just remind me, how do I select Centre (Start Point) ?

Don't worry Zax, I've got it, I was looking in the laser controller menus rather than the image menus.

I'm all working properly now, thanks as always for your quick reply and help
