X and Y Limits set up wrong in brand new MiniGerbil

Hello,

I received my Mini Gerbil yesterday and changed the original board.
Downloaded LightBurn which detected my Gerbil immediately, but set the working range to:

X=200 and Y=330

I changed the setting in Lightburn, but not in the firmware (wasn't aware of it)

This caused some very strange behaviour in Lightburn every time I try to cut / render something which is finally longer than the 200mm of the X-Axis value. I get a warning that I would be out of limits, if this is ignored, the head crashes left into the frame!

So it means I need to change the Values $130 and &131 to the correct values.
Are there maybe any other values which might be wrong in the firmware?

Could you pls. post the standart values which should be in the firmware?

Hi,

LB must have selected the wrong driver. The correct driver is STM-Gerbil and the working area can be manually changed in LB to X=320 and Y=230.

The firmware settings are fine and don't need any alteration.

Hope this helps, cheers,

Paul

Thanks for the answer, but sorry this is wrong.

LightBurn has chosen the correct driver, the Gerbil -STM.

But the max travel values in the firmware are switched, just changing them in Lightburn leads to strange behaviour, at least on my computer. You need to change $130 and $131 accordingly.

On your own page with the standard values for Gerbil you can see the wrong values for X and Y max:

My idea was just to inform you, that your standard values X and Y max are wrong in your set up. And in the meantime I found your page above with all the other standard values.
