I have a CAMFive laser with a chuck style rotary that was purchased used as a package. The laser has worked flawlessly for nearly a year; however, the rotary has been a struggle from day one with regard to image stretching (steps per rotation).
• Laser: CFL-CMA6040K 80 watt
• Controller: Ruida RDC6442G –YM (Panel)
• Firmware: RDC-V8 .02.38
• Rotary: Direct drive (No belts or pulley’s) Chuck style with 1.8° per step
My machine has a direct rotary connection with a console button to enable/disable rotary. I have followed all of the advice on the forums with regard to steps per rotation (S/R) calculations, but to no avail. I have verified that diameter and pulse rotation settings from LB are being sent to the controller but as you can see in the illustration below, the results are identical with S/R settings of 100, 200 and 425. Note also that the length of the rectangle is set to 1.0” in LB but measure 2.125”.
Any help you can offer would be very greatly appreciated.
