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.
