Re: Laser Enhancement on a Rotary Project

TR- yep you got it- you have to put a smooth plate on a laser bed and then the wheels have rubber tires for traction- the arms connect to the gantry with magnets and the object turns 1:1 with the gantry [backwards of course]. For not cylindrical items one end is adjustable. No motor, no calibration-...

Re: Laser Enhancement on a Rotary Project

This not going to help you, probably... but a Laser [chinese] guru developed a rotary design with no motor, built from acrylic. It uses the gantry for power and as it rolls forward the cylinder is turned with it. It works a treat- I built one and it worked so well that I re-designed using alum extru...

Re: Quick Countersinks

Re: Laser Module scope

You could check out other laser software software- not sure they cover your controller but the SW is excellent. Gene

Re: Grainless materilal

People who make counter tops always have sink cutouts they will part with- I love corian [and offbrands], machines well and can also be cut and engraved on a CO2 laser.

Re: Water Jet

We bought a Wazer 3-4 years ago and have never used it because of the crappy software it uses. I tried for a long time to get them to switch to other laser software software [excellent software for Chicom CO2 lasers] and even talked to the software creator [who is a member of our laser machine tool ...

Re: Shapeoko 3 XXL- Cut 3D or Cut 2D pro

Thanks- he is actually my GreatGrandson-in-law- but I am trying to help him get ahead [and have fun doing it]- it appears that Shapeoko has a program [ Carbide Motion which would take the place of my Shopbot Control system software] I have to assume that would dovetail with Cut 2D very nicely. Gene

Re: Best way to transfer real object into Vectric?

Be sure to get as square on as possible when taking the best picture possible. I make bullseyes, one a couple inches above the other to get the camera as square as I can to the center of the target. Back off as far as is possible with the best camera you have available.
