How to use the Rotary Marking Function of EM-Smart Laser Marking Machine? (Part 1)

There ara a couple of rotary marking functions in the EZCAD software, such as AngleRotate, MultiFile Mark, RotaryMark, RotateTextMark, RingMark, SplitMark... each of which has its own purposes and applications.

In this article, we are going to teach you step by step two of the above-mentioned rotary functions, RotateTextMark and SplitMark, the former for rotary marking of texts, the latter for rotary marking of vectors.

P.S. The rotary marking function is compatible with EM-Smart Basic 1R and EM-Smart Basic 2R.

Step 1: To start your rotary text marking, first write any text within the working area using the text function of the tool bar


Step 2: Change the direction of the text using the shortcut key "Ctrl+Up/Down"


Step 3: Apply the hatch to fill the text, change its position and size (you may preview it by clicking "Light (F1)")


Step 4: Change the marking parameters including "Speed", "Power", "Mark Loop", "Frequency", etc.


Step 5: Go to the menu and select "RotateTextMark", there are several parameters you should understand: "Axix step" is the degree of rotation when you manually press "Ctrl+Up/Down" (You may use it when you need change a position for rotary marking); "Part Diameter" is the diameter of the cylindrical object you are going to mark (You can measure it with a vernier scale or even a ruler), checking the "Invert" will change the direction of your marking. "Continuous" and "Mark Selected" are just the same as normal plane marking.


Step 6: Select "Enable" and "Y" for the "ID", and set the "Part Diameter" as 45mm (in this video, the diameter of the cup)


Step 7: You can preview the rotary marking by click "Light (F1)") of the "RotateTextMark" menu.


Step 8: Now you can start the rotary marking by clicking "Mark (F2)"


P.S. You can use a more powerful parameter or go a second loop if the first marking is not enough. Meanwhile, you can also watch this tutorial video on our YouTube channel.
