Lightburn doesn’t seem to cooperate with my ruida controller when enabling rotary.
Its a chuck-style rotary and after getting all the numbers put in LightBurn and click Test the X axis (rather than the selected Y axis) moves appx +1". Then the status at the bottom of the window says “Error: Settings could not be restored to controller after test run”
If I press OK and try to run a job it will hang for a minute or so then run the job normally. If I open up the Rotary Settings again it is turned back off.
RDWorks 8 doesn’t work with my controller at all, so I have to use 5. Which is fine, they are both equally terrible, imo.
Is there plans for scaling like this in LightBurn? The math is pretty easy – I made a spreadsheet that calculates it all for me. The tricky part is getting an accurate measurement for the Y distance to make one full rotation of the chuck. That can probably be figured out with the machine settings, but I just measured mine with some creative tape and pen marks.
