Help with lasering with 4th axis

Post by Superwrench »

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 and feeling the pinch.

I just realized this was a question for Vectric software, not just Shark related. I received an answer from Vectric that said "at this time, it is not possible to laser on the 4th axis". Bummer, that is one of the main reasons I bought this setup...
