3D engrave

Post by Jasper_Rullman » Wed Nov 30, 2016 1:20 am

I am attempting to use my rotary table, first attempt my image was reversed, is this normal and I have to reverse image before engrave, or do I have a setting incorrect?

I will have to get an image, but everything worked fine. Rotated image 90 degrees to orientate to object, size was good to the diameter, etc. But the image was reversed like in a mirror

That is what I had told Yumiko, I rotated the image the 90 degrees to align with Y axis, but the image was reversed as in a mirror. There is no information in the manual saying that the image needs to be mirrored to do rotary etching or cutting. Not a problem if I have to do that but want to make sure my settings are correct and don't want to be wasting materials and time with mistakes.

My settings are as you show in the image. Just to be clear though, I SHOULD NOT HAVE TO MIRROR my image when I use the rotary table? I should only have to rotate the image 90 degree to align with the Y axis?
