After completing the wiring I am now pretty much Sparkfun free, but now I have to figure out initialization stuff. I come from the UGS world where even my HDZ was configured via the command line. Initially I had the use the $2 command to do some axis reversing. Now I need to make sure the parameters for the XL and the HDZ are set up correctly. The documentation is inconsistent and documentation doesn’t match the UI.
I managed to find the HDZ setting in motion but its says “Shapeoko 3 HDZ,” No setting for the XL and HDZ combination.
A couple of questions:
I had to do an axis reverse command. Can I assume Motion will leave that alone since there is no way to set it in the UI?
Is there any documentation for what GRBL commands are being set? I’d like do be able to verify (via $$) my settings. In general I am curious what Motion is doing behind my back (I am used to the UGS world) and when it issues the commands (every connect? only when asked?)
The documentation says that motion will ask my table size (XL) and my Z size (HDZ). It never asked me about XL (because I set it via command?). I assume it did something when I said I had an HDZ?
