um not rescaling objects - Raycam 19 and X7

Postby amob005 » Mon Jan 29, 2018 3:01 am

I'm trying to scale objects in raycam by adjusting um, but I'm not able to get the scaling to work. Modifying um changes only the size of the workspace, but the object size remains the same. I cut objects with different um and the size of the object is identical every time. I am using Raycam 19 with X7 and windows 10.

I also have an awc608 and lasercad 6.88 on another machine which I have been using for years. um change works fine with that machine. I have tried to duplicate the settings in raycam, but have had no luck.

I am importing as DXF from illustrator.

I would change size in source file, but it's not practical because I need to run two machines with the same size image templates. I need to be able to modify scaling using um or some other tool in raycam.

I would like to use lasercad, but lasercad is unable to communicate with X7.

I know I am missing something, but don't know what it must be. Hopefully somebody can please help? Thank you!

I have figured it out. For anybody with similar issues:

1. Options
2. System Options
3. Manufacturer Parameters
4. Click READ
5. Click SAVE.
6. Enter Password "608" for X7 machine
7. Enter your desired parameters.
8. Click SAVE again.

The changes should now be successful.
