Working on rebuilding a old ULS PS25 laser and was thinking of replacing the 1990’s controller with a smoothie. But one unique issue with this machine is the homing requirements. In order to home the X axis you must first home the Y then back up 1". If you don’t the X axis flag will miss the sensor. This is due to their decision to put the X home sensor on the wall of the machine vs having it travel on the X gantry with the head. (lower mass + fewer wires flexing back and fourth. Is there a easy or at least strait forward way to set this homing behavior up in the smoothie firmware?
That and a question about motor driver disables (need to dig thought he wiki more on that one) are about the only two things left keeping me from ordering a smoothie for this project. Thanks for any help!
