Problems with setting for rotary axis

Post by Jonpeder » Wed Jan 17, 2018 11:04 am

The image comes out all wrong when I'm trying to engrave on a glass.

The diameter on the glass is 81 mm. Please look at the pictures with my settings.

When I write 81 mm diameter the engraving is very compact. Look at Image 1.

Look also at image 4, where you see that the image is supposed to have 112 mm height. But when I push the preview it says 55,7 mm height. Look at image 5

What am I doing wrong?

Any help will be appreciated:)

Hi!

I think that worked. Button number 3 was in wrong position for some reason. Thanks:)

Hi Ben I did read that but my machine was bought in Jan 2017 the manual refers to machines bought before Feb 2016. So what would the setting be for a machine bought after ?
Thanks

Hi Garnet,

The circle pulse please set 16000 and the diameter you should measure your material.

Hi Garnet,

The dip switch please set as on off on off on off (1-6).
It's the manufacturer setting and do not change it.
