Posted · What "G92 A0 B0" means?

I'm sorry if there've been any other related posts before, but I couldn't find anything.

With a X-Maker by Qidi-tech, it uses Cura_SteamEngine 4.3.0, I had a gcode which has a "G92 A0 B0" line in the startup section. What does "A0 B0" mean?

I looked at Marlin's G92 instruction, but there's no information about "A B". What are these codes?

https://marlinfw.org/docs/gcode/G092.html?fbclid=IwAR0oJfFkVRu9ZOrBnKiuZ_pAb3qw6sU-JlfleFfyMBgQTNOJematNT2BU_Q
X-Maker has only one extruder, "G92 E0" probably sets the current filament position to zero, but can't determine what "A0 B0" means.

 Thanks in advance!

The text below is the start up codes generated. It has "G92 A0 B0" three times.

    Is it possible that A,B,C can also refer to the 3 servos on a delta printer?  I've seen internal firmware (redeem) refer to the servos this way but I've never seen gcodes that refer to them that way so I'm thinking that nallath's explanation is the correct one.

    Sorry, I don't have any delta printer.  

    I tested generating gcodes of the same STL model with two methods,


    (1) By Cura 4.8.0 on Windows10 with Marlin flavored setting.
    (2) By Qidi-Print on Windows10 (uses Cura_StreamEngine 4.3.0 internally)

     

    and had "G92 A0 B0" lines only when case(2). So it seems like originating in Qidi-Print's specific implementation. Anyway, it won't affect actual printing, no problem.

    Even though Qidi uses Cura, they haven't released the source code (and are thus violating the licence Cura was released on). I have asked them to adhere to the licence, but i've not been able to get any response from them. As such, I can't say what changes they actually made.
