Re: Rotary engraving set up

Maybe a few days late to help but the machine is looking for the Y axis limit sensor
You can just press stop on the control panel .

Re: HX3040 USB machine - help with drivers on Windows 10

Hi Fifty
The old type 3040's look like the 3020's but bigger
The new model of 3040's look more like 3060's
the very early one's were white and blue but most are red and white
if you can get Newlydraw to work on windows 10 i have no idea

Re: 4 Mirror Alignment Nightmare

The first mirror is just to get the beam into the cabinet and normally doesn't need moving
And Dave is right you might need to shim the 4th mirror
Its a long time since i have seen a old style 3040 but i think you need a 5.5mm spanner and a couple cups of tea

Hi Alison
If your mirrors and lens are clean and your alignment is ok then it will probably be new tube time

Re: round and round it goes

Hi Tim
The rotary for the 3060 is a chuck type Don't know the size
It plugs into the Y axis simple unplug and plug in (machine should be turned off for this)
Yes you have too change the pulse setting (there is a formula for this)

Hope this helps
