Router/ laser auto swap

I had to modify vectric post a bit to get both router and laser to work nicely together.
Offset swap is done in m3 macro depending on a variable set by my m6 macro- depending on what number tool was up next !
Now I have both working together with independent settings for delay , offset, different m3 pins.
I did have to move the laser up another 30mm as it was fouling tool cones in the Atc rack on tool changes for the router !
Seems birch plywood doesn’t always want to laser nicely as seen here - I presume that’s why there is special laser plywood sold ?
Still learning but happy I’ve got it this far :-)

If they say it can't be done- I find a way!
