Yep that is the issue but there is a bug stopping it from working.
For whatever reason, Easel sets my Z axis movement value to 188, when it should be 1600.
I can correct this manually obviously BUT when I go through machine setup to enable homing etc etc it sets it back to 188. so the Z doesent move enough to properly double click the switch.
I’m still messing with it trying to find a workaround, I have no idea why the preset for the 3018 would have a default $102 of 188, there is literally no kit available where that would be even remotely close to correct.
I see what you’re talking about (I think), but that’s not in the “Machine Setup”. The actual setup only has standard X-CARVE sizes and Z axis settings. Your machine can be controlled with Easel without going through the setup.
But for Xcarve, which Easel is made for - use these default values.
Easel is oblivious to 3018 or any other GRBL CNC that use screws/rack&pinion as main mechanics.
Since the step/mm values that Easel assume are good, but is not for your 3018, the pull-off distance will be different than what $27 dictate. Hence you needed to change to $27=50 for it to clear. Actual travel was probably much less, but with an incorrect step/mm value travel is off.
For a generic GRBL CNC, Easel is capable of setting up correctly direction, enable homing/limits and probe.
You will however be required to manually edit Step/mm ($100-$102), Feed rate ($110-112) and Acceleration ($120-122) to suit your specific machine.
If you have soft limits enabled, you need to set range aswell ($130-132)
Do the steps/mm first as the remaining parameters use that as its baseline
