I have personally only used the two laser programs from the tutorials, one for raster and one for vector. When the new firmware is more stable I will rewrite them for the newly implemented laser specific commands but they are no different just easier to assign pins.March 7, 2018 at 12:02 pm #54556
I’ve been super into laserweb lately and so far it is the best laser cam software I have found (at least for free) and doing laser cut and laser fill paths are super easy even with the current fan hack. With laserweb, though, if we could use the laser m commands then I could make complex projects that included cuts fills and rasters all in a single gcode file. I tried grbl but the ramps port isn’t great.March 8, 2018 at 11:23 am #54623
Ryan, I just re-read your reply. I didn’t realize that the newer version of marlin had implemented the laser specific commands, I thought it was something special marlinkimbra was doing. I don’t know a ton about coding, but when you say rewrite the firmware, you mean making an MPcnc specific edit of marlin? Do you think it would be unreasonable difficult for me to try a stock version of marlin on the Mpcnc and just change the attributes i need? I guess I just don’t know how much your blessedly convenient version differs from vanilla marlin-March 8, 2018 at 12:21 pm #54625
