=== How Our Laser Uses G-code ===
X axis: gantry right/left, 500 1000 dpi <br />Y axis: gantry far/near, 500 1000 dpi <br />W axis: table up/down, 2000 4000 dpi <br />
The laser is wired to ''spindle on/off'' ([http://linuxcnc.org/docs/html/gcode/m-code.html#mcode:m3-m4-m5 M3/M5]) '''and''' either of the following: <br />
''move Z axis to -0.002/+0.002'' (on/off respectively) <br />
'''or''' <br />
use "digital out" commands [http://linuxcnc.org/docs/html/gcode/m-code.html#mcode:m62-m65 ''"M62 P0" / "M63 P0"'' ] for on/off, respectively <br />
That is to say, the laser is on if and only if the spindle is on and one or both of the Z axis and digital out are on.
