Diode Laser + Plasma Configuration (Probing and offset)

Hi everyone ! In my fablab (AgriLab in France) we just built a plasma table with a MESA 7i96s, THCAD 5 and Hypertherm Powermax 45XP that works well !

Now we planned to add a diode laser (AtomStack) to use it in parrallel of the plasma torch.

We already successed in making the laser works with PWM on the Mesa Board.
Now i would like execute the probing routine even when we use the laser to apply the exact offset to achieve a clean job (+ Z 5mm).

I would also change the Cycle Stop button script to execute an M68 E0 Q0 an shutdown the laser.

Can someone help us please ?

We use Linux CNC 2.10 with QtPlasmaC.

Find my .ini and .hal files attached.

Just putting it out there, that laser can not be mounted there while plasma is in use due to huge amounts of very fine dust created during cutting.

Yes, you are right ! That's why it is removable when you don't use it.
The idea is to allow our users to engrave the sheet of steel with the laser, remove it then cut the sheet with the plasma torch (with the right offset).
