Trace Frame - Laser burns on trace frame
« on: August 25, 2021, 08:02:55 AM »
 Howdy,

   I have been using the T2 laser software with my 3000mW Blue universal engraver. When I  click trace frame the laser turns on for the trace. I have adjusted the laser power to zero but to no avail. The laser also comes on when moving from origin to the start of a design. I assume I am missing something simple. I have attached a snip of my laser control dashboard. Any help would be much appreciated.

 - Thanks,

    Fulghum

I would recommend upgrading the firmware to Grbl 1.1e DEFAULT, it appears you are using Benbox firmware which is very old. It does not support PWM so you only have off or full power, however, you should be able to stop it turning on when moving if you enable Jog Rapid Feed in the Settings / Advanced menu on the laser controller.
