Ok, so I have read over a previous user who was having weird issues with his engravings getting stretched. I’m having a similar but random problem.
Every time I run the rotary…it rotates seemingly at a different distance. Example:
I reset the controller, settings for rotary are 10k steps & 80mm (diameter of the chuck), and the thing spins a good quarter turn too far.
So, I change the steps to about 7500…it’s perfect. Yay. Stick item in chuck, change the diameter, run program…engraving is stretched. Ugh. Ok, start over
I then put my tape back on the chuck, change diameter to 80mm, check the chuck rotation again…THIS TIME IT COMES UP SHORT! SERIOUSLY!?
Change steps to 10K…nope, it’s off.
Basically, every time I run a rotation, the value for the steps seems to change. Makes no sense. This is supposed to be the setting that doesn’t change correct!?
I’m going crazy here. I’ve run through 6 glasses, all are weird. I even had one, it was perfect for literally half the burn, then it all of a sudden stretched the last half. GAH!!!
Did I get a dud rotary with a bad motor!?
