@Zax Thanks Zax, emailed to support.
I'll be interested to know what is going wrong
Elecro mechanical / robotics / electronics engineer. Been interested in Lasers since I was about 12 years old. Been in industrial automation for 40 years, and now at age 61 they have finally come together!!
Hi Zax, reading some tutorials on a site "cutlasercut" which are laser service co. But they were talking about vector engraving as opposed to slower raster engraving. I followed their instructions for setting inkscape up for vector engraving. In inscape my text sample was filled text (converted to path) as instructed. Save as dxf and imported in to T2. However, the text came out as unfilled. Can T2 handle vector engraving as opposed to raster? If I select the option to FILL in T2 the whole image is filled.
Just to make sure you are not missing a step, when Zax says to set 0,0 (work piece origin) you position the laser on low power over the centre of your work piece where you want the orange dot to be and then right click the little house icon in the centre of the axis control group. The coordinates above the icon should change to zeros. If there are * next to the coordinates, just double click them to show the work piece coordinates.
Hope that helps,
Just an FYI Tucker, I am running an A3 with the Mana Se board with the rather heavy Z axis add on, and it runs without any issues with 0.7v on the pot wiper. Is was also running well at the default setting 0f about 0.4v before I extended the rails. SO not sure you problem is strictly power. Unless you have the belts VERY tight.
Hope that helps
@tucker298 Glad you got your bits! Just a note if you are using limit switches with all the wiring in energy chain. I had issues with cross talk noise from the motors triggering the limits once I extended the rails. I had to use an opto isolator board to stop it. I put a post here about it. You can search for that or I'll let you have the details if you need them.
