Before you configure xTool D1 Pro, download the configuration file first:
Make sure that you start to configure xTool D1 Pro in this way instead of choosing Import Prefs from the menu. If you choose Import Prefs, the original configuration is overridden.
Put down the focal length setting bar to set the height of the laser head.
Note: The center point of the cross-shaped light beams is the start point for framing. You can move the laser head to place the center point in the position where you want to start engraving.
Install the rotary attachment on xTool D1 Pro
To use the rotary attachment, you need to fit cylindrical spacer blocks to the supports of xTool D1 Pro. Use the cylindrical spacer blocks supplied by Makeblock and fit them as follows:
Note: If one cylindrical spacer block is too low to engrave an object, you can add one more spacer block.
Take the engraving on a stainless-steel cup as an example.
For details about how to set the position of the adjustable roller, see "Setting the position of the adjustable roller."
Connect the rotary attachment to xTool D1 Pro, as the following picture shows.
Note: Ensure that you have placed the rotary attachment parallel to the working area of xTool D1 Pro. Otherwise, the pattern to be engraved on the object may be deformed.
You can click Frame to preview the position where the pattern is to be engraved and then set the laser head to the expected position.
After completing the settings, click Start.
Note: Currently, the firmware supports only some functions of the rotary attachment. Start From can be set only in Current Position.
