Is it possible on some future release of K40 Whisperer to control the speed in which it homes on initialize? And/or maybe home X first and then Y second as another feature? I would like to slow my K40 down a little.
@Scorch can comment if I am getting something wrong, but I think the homing is built into the M2Nano firmware and not something that K40 Whisperer can override.
Yes, @NedMan you are correct.
So anything firmware related cannot be accessed, correct?
That is correct.
Roger that. Thank-you.
MeerK40t has something like this. While the home is directly on the card. You can do a return to origin at specific speeds. Unlike Whisperer, MeerK40t makes a point to track the current location. So it knows where 0,0. If you set the rapid_maximum, and added an
Origin command to the end of the job. You would return to origin without exceeding the speed constraints. It literally makes a job to move the laser to 0,0 with the requested speeds.
This feature exists generally because sometimes people used Rotaries and they could not move along the y-axis very fast since it was rotating an object or whatever.
