Laser Mode: on/off

Post by wb9tpg »

I have a Shapeoko and am adding a J-tech laser to it. They supplied their own post-processor but I checked it and didn't see and $32 commands h turn on laser mode.

Can I just add $32=1 to the startup settings in the laser post-processor and $32=0 in my normal post-processor and make it idiot proof?

My machine is torn apart at the moment for a spindle upgrade and adding the laser.
