Laser Printer Mode - tools offset
spw last edited by spw
I'm trying to use M452 P2 R255 F200 with the tool offset it works fine when I issue M452 P2 R255 F200 but it will start outside the work area. As soon as I define it as a tool the laser will only blink once for fraction of second when M03 S255 is issued.
My script is:
M307 H2 A-1 C-1 D-1
M452 P2 R255 F200
M563 P1 H2
G10 P1 X-64 Y-38.5 Z0
The firmware version is 2.0(RTOS)RC5 (2018-05-22b1)

The workaround is to use M206 X-64 Y-38.5 Z0, but it sets offset for all tools
After changing the tool offset, you should always do a travel move to the desired starting position before you do either an extruding move or a move with a spindle or a laser turned on. This is because RRF applies the tool offset to future commanded positions. It doesn't apply it to the current position and move the head immediately because the coordinates of the current position are quite often unreachable in the new coordinate system.
