Rotary axis without motor
« on: November 01, 2020, 08:07:15 PM »
Four wheels attached to the Y axis ...
I thought about doing something to engrave wooden cylinders, but I believe that the diameter of these wheels cannot be any measure.

You would just need to change the Y-axis steps, very easy to do either using the rotary option in T2Laser or manually.

Nice. I'll try to build one with smaller wheels and see what happens.

I did an improvisation with things I had here, it is not the best solution but it is working ...
in T2Laser I have to leave the "Rotating Axis" function off, otherwise it is all out of scale, reduced ... I put the diameter value, it shows the correct circumference, but when it comes to showing the frame, the two measurements are much smaller of the "rectangle" that will become a cylinder.
Leaving this function off, it seems to work well.

You would only use the rotary option for a lathe style axis, where the distance is relative to the circumference.
