Delay for Laser Plugin

Postby andileibi » Sat Nov 14, 2020 12:45 pm

Hello experts,
Is it possible to add a motion delay in the laser plugin?
In each row, the first one or two millimeters are not lasered because the axis is already running and the laser lens needs some time to start.

Looks more to me like it needs some backlash. I couldn't get quality engraves out of the laser plugin without adding a bit of backlash, even though the machine doesn't need it for normal cutting operations.

Thanks for the answer, I usually don't need a backslash for my machine, at least not for milling, not even for laser cutting when I laser cut contours. When I laser out contours, I create the G-code in Aspire and use a post-processor there that has set a delay of 100 ms for each milling process.

Update: Post processor file added
