Re: MDX-540 Z overload (peak) error?

The only problem with the air for the tool change could be if you do multiple tool changes in quick succession and it drains the air compressor reservoir. Usually give the machine (including inside the Z axis bellows) a good clean out and lubrication as Kai suggested is the first port of call, if pr...

Re: EGX-350, Traffolyte Engraving

As Mrtn suggested, you need to skim the bed first to get it level, and then use the engraver with the spindle on - on our website support section we have a cheat sheet for this machine and what settings to use.

Unfortunately it's in metric for you but you should be able to convert it.

Re: EGX-20 Motor not spinning

There is a setting in the EGX-20 printer driver to engrave with the spindle off, this may have been checked by mistake. Also, you may have the setting for the RPM in the driver for the cutting (same place as the XY and chip values) set to 1 or 0 and not the correct RPM? Otherwise it is probably an i...

Re: MPX not printing over 50mm

The setting on all MPX machines is to limit it to 50mm x 50mm unless you check the box in the printer driver properties marked Extend Print Area.
Then you can set the print size above 50mm.

Re: Error : 009

Firstly I'd make sure you are running the latest version of the iModel Controller. And the windows drivers are the latest version. You can download both updaters here . Secondly, make sure you are not running the machine through a USB 3.0 port. We sometimes find that these have issues with running U...

Re: How many Roland MDX-20 still exist in the world

Hi, This is amazing, a really novel idea. When we were looking at updating the MDX-20 a few years ago, we did put a port on the mainboard of the SRM-20 that allows you to plug the audino in. We had a lot of interest from people wanting to do some crazy things, but to be honest most users are using i...
