Glass Engraving

To demonstrate the operation of the HEXA rotary extension, we will use a cylindrical glass as an example. We will provide detailed instructions on how to use the rotary extension, making it easy for you to follow along and learn. Join us in this simple step-by-step tutorial to master the use of the rotary extension.

Step 1 Rotary Installation

Setting up the HEXA rotary extension is an easy process. Just follow these steps for a quick installation:

  1. Start by powering off the machine.
  2. Remove the honeycomb table inside the machine.
  3. Place the seats on the bracket.
  4. Set the rotary extension on the seat.
  5. Plug the cable into the socket at the back of the machine

For more detailed instructions, you can check out the demonstrations at the FLUX Help Center.

Step 2 Beam Studio Setting

Next, let’s proceed to the software setup: Click on ‘Edit’ > Select ‘Document Settings’ > Activate the ‘Rotary Extension’ button under the expansion modules. Once you’ve completed these steps, if a blue alignment line appears in the Beam Studio interface, it indicates a successful installation.

Step 3 Camera Preview & Parameter Setting

Place the material you wish to engrave onto the rotary extension and secure it using the knob. Then, in Beam Studio, select the camera icon at the top left for a ‘Camera Preview’. The HEXA’s camera lens captures the exact position of the engraving material, making it easy to position your design accurately on the glass. Beam Studio offers a range of suggested parameters for different materials. After positioning your design, go to ‘Parameter Adjustment’ in the toolbar on the right and choose ‘Glass – Engraving’ to finalize your settings.

Step 4 Start Engraving

The HEXA rotary extension boasts a maximum engraving diameter of 7.5 cm and can handle objects up to 60 cm in length. Whether you’re looking to engrave cups or cylindrical materials, the HEXA rotary extension simplifies the process. Its versatility extends beyond beer glass offering delicate and detailed engraving on items like wine glasses, ideal for unique wedding gifts. Trust the rotary extension to produce gifts that are both high in value and rich in sentiment.
