I just picked up a used EGX-30 Roland engraver and while I have successfully set up the printer driver and outputted it directly from the mfg supplied Dr Engrave, I am not having any luck with Vcarve (I am using an old version 5.x that was on my laptop). When I attempt to output directly to the printer, the engraver goes in the wrong direction (away from where DR Engrave starts which is in the lower left corner). It travels up and to the right and then puts the machine in a Pause condition (which I assume is like an axis limit exceeded sort of error). I tried the pnc-2300 post too and it outputs the same code with the same results.
I also tried moving the XY origin position to the opposite corners but get the same result.
I feel I'm just missing something obvious.
