  1. Hi all New to the forum and I have a very annoying problem that I hope someone can help with... We've recently started doing in house engraving. Everything has been going fine, but I've been trying to practice on watch cases. The problem is that I set up the plate, use the point and shoot circle feature, which creates a nice circle for me. I enter text inside the circle (lines of text of going around the inside of the circle) and test the path. The laser pointer draws the circle perfectly and the text looks to be in the right place. However, when I delete the circle and actually engrave the text, it's off centre by about 5mm, always to the left. I don't understand why the machine gets confused between the test and the actual engraving. It's driving me crazy and any help would be greatly appreciated! Image attached for reference. Thanks in advance.

  10. Hi All Im hoping one of you could help me. Basically ive recently taken over the responsibility of engraving for our company since our previous engraver has left. Im finding it jolly good fun as it co-insides with my artistic side. However certain things I am having to work out as I go as both myself and the previous engraver are both self taught apart from abit of tuition from an engineer when we first got our machine and finally ive got abit stuck. I’m having a problem engraving a brass plaque 0.5mm thick as the normal hard metal cutter won’t cut deep enough. So I want to use a Tungsten Carbide tip (semi circular nib). The problem im having is a simply don’t know how to properly set a consistent depth since the drill bit has no spring just a nosecone. I figured the depth must be set in Surelab Pro (v7.1) somewhere but I just don’t know what setting(s) im looking for or what to change. Helpfully our previous engraver didn’t cover this with me in the handover and has simply put on the notes to 'Set the machine as per manual'….which manual is that?!? Any tutorials or advise on how to cut a slightly deeper depth into Brass using Surlab Pro and a Rotation S Machine. Thanks in advance. Regards, John
