I have a Ruida 60W machine, and I’m trying to use Z-axis (aka bed up/down, U-axis, or pen up/down) moves during an engraving/cut job.
I’ve enabled Z-axis in the machine settings menu, and configured various cuts to utilize Z offset and Z steps per pass, but the bed does not move.
When controlling the machine directly through LightBurn, all of the travel axis moves work except for the Z axis buttons which do nothing. The Focus Z button does work though, which makes me think it should be possible for LightBurn to control the Z axis.
The laser is currently connected to my home network via an ethernet cable to the router.
- Ruida controller
- Controller number: KT332N (EC)
- DSP number:23.01.06
- 700 x 500mm area
Any help in getting the Z axis control working would be greatly appreciated
