First have the machine powered off and plug the rotary into the machine, then turn the machine on. The plug is on the right side, underneath the display.
Physically move the rail in the Y-axis until the laser head is centerline of the cup itself. Then use the jog controls to move the laser head in the X-axis till the laser head is in the top left position of where you want the job to be placed on your material.
Access the software and go to Edit>Settings>Rotary, enable rotary mode and input the diameter of the cup you will be engraving. Place your cup into the rotary and secure it by adjusting the clamps with the tool. Then bring the spool to the other end of the cup itself and secure it in place with the tension screw in the bottom. Use the jog control on either the touch screen or software to rotate the cup in one direction to ensure it does not slip or wobble
If the cup slips or wobbles heavily, loosen the clamps and reposition the cup, then tighten the clamps again to secure the cup and rotate it again.
Bring your job into Re3 and use the run perimeter button in the top left by the run job button to preview the placement of your job. The laser head will move while the rotary spins to draw a box of the area the job will be engraved in. You can then push the same button to stop the run perimeter.
Once the size and position of the job is correct we will run a test. For a test cup it is recommended to use masking tape over the area you want to engrave and using low power and high speed so that you engrave on the tape itself but don’t cut through the tape to the cup below. This is to ensure your job is coming out correctly. Run the job and once it is complete inspect the job but leave the cup as it is. If it appears to be correct we can just run the same job again with higher power so that it cuts through the masking tape and marks the cup below.
If you have to remove the cup to inspect the job that is fine, remove the masking tape and run the job on the cup itself
