Hi everyone, still new and still learning. I have a 60W Red and Black Laser that has the Ruida 6442S controller. This laser did not come with any Rotary attachment nor any connections for one. I can see that it uses the Y axis for the rotary, so I just want to know how to add this.
I have picked up a second hand roller type as well as have available a chuck type from a cnc mill/drill that I can use.
I can see both steppers have 4 wire, Red,Blue,Black,Green, so I am making an assumption here that both Pulse and Direction would be the same for all as far as wire color is concerned ??
If I was to add a 4 Pole 2 Position switch to the unit and use this to switch between the original Y Axis for the Laser and the new “Plug” that will allow me to connect either the roller or the chuck, then this should be correct ??
I know that I need to configure the change in Lightburn for the Rotary Setup, but have I forgotten something or have something incorrect, before I start this change.
