Hi Bruce,
If its any help this is what I have done
in bCNC for laser work:
I have added 4 user defined buttons on
the control tab:-
            Laser mode on;            
              $32=1
           
Laser mode off;                    
      $32=0
Laser constant power mode;       M3 (Laser only switches on
during G1, G2, G3 off during G0)
Laser dynamic power mode;       M4 (Laser power varies with
feed rate automatically)
I set the Z to zero when generating the
G-Code.  Then before I start the job,
I just press the laser mode on button followed by the laser
mode I want to use.  The software
takes it from there.  Don’t forget
to select laser mode off when you’re finished as it is
stored in the Arduino and will still be active the next time
you use it. 
Happy
lazing,
Marcus
