I have just installed a new axis driver, and attached it to the U axis.
I have 6445S controller.
I cannot see any way of getting the Rotary to work in LB through the U axis, although I’ve read lots of threads saying the rotary need to be working off the U axis.
In LB I only see option for Y Z A axis, Should I coonnect it to the Z axis, and enable the Z axis in device settings?
I have the latest firmware on my PC, but I cannot transfer it to the controller because RDWorks will not connect and cannot do it through LB.
I have tried many many times to install, uninstall, reinstall RDworks and USB drivers, different versions of RDWorks etc etc, it will not connect and I don’t know why, and have no idea how else to update the firmware to the board.
If I send the job to the controller from LB, with the rotary connected to my new Axis (U Axis) it seems to run ok but the engraving sometimes fires and sometimes doesn’t…weird
@berainlb@Greolt I have got it running through Ethernet connection, well almost!
Many thanks for the info and advice, I have 1 issue…Lightburn works perfect through Ethernet and connects no issues, however I still cannot connect RDworks USB or Ethernet both come up with port error??? When I put the ip address in the device set up in RD and test, com error…no idea why??? So still cannot upgrade the firmware, whic was the whole point of the ethernet connection.
