Start position when using Inkscape plugin
When using the plugin to generate gcode can I get it to start engraving at the current position without an offset or moving to the centre?
The inkscape gcode plugin is the j tech photonics plugin, found here
You would get better and more experienced support finding forums that have used the j teck photonics plugin.
Thanks mrmister, lots more info there.
Your welcome. Sometimes better information is found in otherplaces.
I use the j tech plugin, but as an End User I could not advise on it at all.
Are you using elekscam to send the gcode?
Yes I am using Elekscam to send the gcode but as it does not preview it not sure if there is any advantage to using it, are you using something else?
I use T2 and Elekscam.
As for the plugin, I know that the j tech plugin marks 0,0 in relationto the lines converted to code.
In inkscape at the TOP of the window you can set the orientaion on X and Y. I select the entire project a nd then set X,Y position in inkscape.
