I am trying to get LB to work and have played around with the settings. With Paulas settings (bottom left origin) you can get it to work. However, something is off when it comes to homing, moving and positioning.
1st Issue: If you click “get position” after homing your Fabkit (rear left corner) LB returns x:5 y:455. Any movement commands dont work since LB constantly tries to move above the origin and you can’t enter negative y-numbers. If you enter for example y:50 the head will not move down to y:50, it will again try to move through the top. You can move the head using the arrow-buttons though.
My workaround will probably be to never use any move commands, ignore returned positions, absolute origin and all that stuff and just move the head to where i want it and select “User origin” in the bottom right menu (where you tell you laser to start) and set the job origin to top left. I then place the svgs with the top left corner where the head is and hit play. I hope the creators will adjust to fabkit homing and probably flip the y-axis.
2nd Issue: When i move around too much LB just gets stuck to a point where he will only accept one command: Move right. After that, nothing else works (not even another move right) until i restart LB.
3rd Issue: (probably because i don’t know the code) I really miss the macros: turn off filter, turn off compressor, clear alarm. Especially when LB bugs out, i have to close it, start LW, connect to laser, hit the macros.
Except for compressor, which i don’t have a macro for. I am running a job and stopping it right away.
