Tips for using the L-shaped module of RA2 Pro

Application scenario

When you use the chuck with the L-shaped module of xTool Rotary Attachment 2 Pro (RA2 Pro), the pattern processed may deform, for example, a circle is processed as an ellipse, and a square is processed as a trapezoid.

When this happens, you can modify your patterns as follows to ensure better processing results.

 

How to modify your patterns

Quick way

Modify your pattern based on the ratio of the sides in the 2D view.

Assume that you are to process a square on a cone, as shown in the following figure.

You need to measure the lengths of the two arcs and modify the square accordingly.

Note that the height of the pattern to be processed is the same as that of the target processing area, or the formula does not work.

 

Why does this happen

Because the material to be processed is not a regular cylinder and the diameter differs in different positions. When the material rotates at the same angle, the length rotated differs in different positions. That is why the processing result deforms.

This happens only on irregular cylinders such as cones, of which the diameter differs in different positions. For regular cylinders whose diameter is the same at all points, this does not happen.
