Machine: K40 Mini - Preenex M2 Nano
I am about to add this TLC Rotary: https://www.ebay.com/itm/293645976742
to my K40 Mini with the above configuration. At first I was thinking I would need a switch or to plug and unplug the Y to connect the rotary but it looks like that won’t be necessary due to laserboard having its own separate connection “A”, for a rotary attachment, am I correct in this assumption?
If so, what is the behavior of “Y” when rotary is enabled in Lightburn, is it temporarily disabled?
And what about homing functions, will I still need to manually press the homing switch on the K40’s “Y” axis to fool it into thinking its homed before the rotary will stop spinning… I have seen this behavior in videos where people are swapping with the rotary cable.
Lastly, I am not sure yet weather or not I will need to use an external stepper motor driver with this setup, still digging for information on this.
Any feedback is appreciated!
