First post here. I hope I have this in the right category, it seems more like hardware, but touches on Lightburn as well.
I am working my way through @myerswoodshop video tutorial on getting my rotary setup. I got to the point where I am figuring out steps per rotation. I hit start and nothing happened (have never tried hitting start from lightburn before, always send and start from panel) and this is where my trouble started.
I sent the file to the controller, origin, and frame as per my normal procedure. The X axis moves, but Y does not. I can jog the Y axis no problem, so I think thats OK. It just does not work with either frame or start from controller. However, if I click Frame in Lightburn, it will run the framing with both X and Y axis.
Thats the strange bit that has me confused. Frame from lightburn works on both axis, frame from controller only works on X axis.
Any ideas why this behavior is happening? Lightburn is setup for Y axis on the rotary setup tool, but I could not find anywhere where the controller might be trying to use a different axis (U maybe?).
As a side note: My Y axis is a three wire stepper motor with an A/B switch on front of the machine. My rotary is a 6wire stepper that has been tied together by factory to make it a 3 wire motor, but the aviation plug that was on it was a 4pin plug, and this new laser is a 3 pin. So I did some testing and put the 3pin aviation plug in. Works just fine when jogging around so I figured that the wiring is correct there.
