    Default Looking for help with Rotary setup on Digicarver 100w machine, RDWorks V8.01.10

    Hi folks,

    My laser works great so far on flat stuff, but I want to branch out to rounded, so I bought the rotary for it. I've plugged it in and it spins when I jog it's axis, but I cant seem to get RDworks to let me enable the "Enable Rotate Engrave" in the software. I'm doing lots of searching, and I've tried various tweaks, but that box is never selectable. Here's a pic:



    Does anyone have any ideas of what I can try to get that working?

    Thanks, I'll keep searching in the meantime.

    Ryan

    I use circle engrave all the time with rdworks. I will look at my machine tomorrow.

    The Y axis is rotary axis.

    My machine uses version 8.00.27 and it will Allen w me to circle engrave. Look in your vendor settings and config settings. You might be able to enable it. The password is “RD8888”

    In case you have not found a solution for others who have spent at least a hour, like I just did, trying to solve this, the solution was to select the correct model (or at least one that supports the rotary functions) For mine it was 320, but I am not really sure what that is.
