Re: 4th Axis Ignored Lines

I just ran into a similar issue yesterday. First, the chuck was starting to unscrew itself preventing full rotation.

Help with lasering with 4th axis

I have searched the forum, but come up empty. I am trying to laser engrave on a wooden travel mug using the 4th axis. If I use the laser PP, the gantry moves in the Y axis. If I use the rotary PP, the laser won't light up. What am I doing wrong? I am two weeks behind on this project for Christmas an...
