Problem/ Question: I am having issues setting up my home built rotary. I have completed the setup based on the rotary document. Adjusted the steps/rotation and lowered the values as suggested. I am using Lightburn and also completed the rotary setup in Lightburn.
The issues I have is the A-Axis speed does not match the desired speed. It rotates slower then what the X-Axis is doing. It also seems to rotate pause and begin again when vectoring. It leaves dashes rather then straight lines. It looks like it is set to perforated but it isn’t.
The stepper motor I am using is a Nema17 with a 1.8steps with 20T gears on all three. I came up with 8.88 steps per mm. Is this correct?
What would cause the stepper to rotate while firing the laser, pause turn off the laser then start to rotate again while firing? It seems to pause when it reaches the corners and does not complete the corners.
