Vendor settings problem

Post by Andrzej Dyduch »

Hello, I recently bought my first co2 laser 3050. As I came up with the factory settings after enabling its reset and going to the top right but image is mirrored and if I wanted to do normal I had to mirror it in rdworks it works but a bit Irritating. Then on youtube I found that I can change the direction axis from negative to positive base, after the change it worked really well the position of the laser base switched to the upper left side and no need to reflect elements in rdworks .. BUT unfortunately after turning on the machine and when it resets the x axis which i changed it presses as hard as it can left but can't as it's already in the top left corner ... any suggestion i can change i'm pretty sure it's something in the settings

if needed i can make a video how it looks like

I recommend restoring the vendor setting

Unless you have a proximity switch in the top left reversing the homing position does not work as you have found out.

I did that it returns to top right corner but it keeps mirroring elements.

If the home point of the machine is top right, then both X-Axis and Y-Axis need to be mirrored.

Somewhere in the "Config(S)" is a function to mirror the x and y axis - not sure where in your version of RDWORKS
