I’m using an ancient version of ArtCam Pro. Specifically ArtCam Pro
4.5 with an early model ModelMaster minimill. I’m wanting to cut
something on the rotary table. Done the rendering, done the math -
more than once-, set everything up same as usual, but the Y axis
locks up. Everything’s been taken apart n cleaned and reassembled.
Still, it locks on the Y axis. The motor hums, but head doesn’t
rotate. For giggles I changed the factor number thinking maybe I’m
asking it to do something outside the envelope, like using too high a
factor. Worked one direction, but not back until I plugged in a
factor below 3.
Seems what I’m wanting to cut is too small for the rotary table
stepper motors to handle. Either confirmation of my suspicion or
advice as to what I may be doing wrong would be great. What I’m
trying to cut is a 10 x 7mm bead. Anyone have any experience cutting
something this small? Upgrading the entire system is out of the
