Laser “Tool” with macro


I would like to see “Laser” added to the tool menu with a test fire macro button. The button would temporarily disable the dynamic power setting for aligning the laser to the work.

Of course, the “Test Fire” button would lock out the “Play” button so one wouldn’t be able to run the g-code file until the “Test Fire” was turned off.

Once the “Test Fire” is off, you could run the g-code as normal.

This would be something like the “Probe XYZ” functionality that is currently built in now. This would prevent running files while accidentally having dynamic power unchecked and charring the tight and slow areas of a burn.


That would be a great feature that would save a lot of time and hassle. I second the motion.
