Can you please confirm my understanding of this. Here are my current assumptions.
Beta max is the offset from the homing location to the desired y origin. Beta max is used since the homing direction for beta is positive in the ccs.
Alpha min is the offset from the homing location to the desired x origin. Alpha min is used since the homing direction for Alpha is negative in the ccs.
What I did for setup was jogged the machine in lightburn to some positive coordinate that was on the work area but close to the origin. I used 20, 20. I manually burned a small spot on the workpiece that was positioned at the origin and I used a caliper to measure the location of the dot from the origin of the work piece. I calculated the difference between the programmed value of 20,20 to the actual burn position and adjusted beta max and alpha min to put my origin exactly at 0,0
I’m not sure how this relates to the work area setup in lightburn. I see many people saying that the bed size has to match in lightburn and the config.txt file but the way I am understanding is that the bed size setup in lightburn is from the established origin by smoothie and the end stop alpha min and beta max are what define the origin in terms of offsets from the machine home position
Please clarify for me
