Multiple Passes Question

(cedric) #1

I have a problem with that function z step per Pass.

I want to Cut a form in multiple passes. After each Cut i want to move the bed.

I activated number of passes to 3 and “z step per Pass” to 2mm.
But the Z-axis doesnt move while the Cut makes its 3 Passes.

I activated the z Axis in the device settings.

Have you an Idea what i am doing wrong ?

Best regards

It is a Ruida Controller and a 100w 100x60 Laser.

First question - is the Z axis motor controlled by your controller? Many machines have up/down buttons that control a DC motor. If your machine works this way, LightBurn will not be able to drive the Z.

yes the Z-Axis is controlled by the controller. It is a Stepper driver with a stepper motor.
