What It Doeschuck chucks

A rotary is a device that can expand your laser engraving projects to include curved objects, such as glassware, bottles, rolling pins, and more. It is a simple accessory that connects to the laser hardware and 'rotates' the material so that the desired image is perfectly engraved on the curved object.   

What Rotary Operators Need To Know

For the most part, using a rotary is much like designing any other laser project. You will design or import your design file and input your settings in the laser software, in this case RetinaEngrave. The only change to be aware of in the software is the angle of the design. Rotary operators will note that the rotary sits in the riser at a 90 degree angle from normal. That means the design will also need to be turned exactly 90 degrees (orientation depends on which way the rotary is placed).
