To use the CYLINDER split you need a W rotary axis. This modality allows you to mark cylindrical parts, dividing into little pieces the circumference (C = 2 π r) and marking them one at a time on the part, employing W axis rotary movement.
Selecting this function you will get this window:
Insert the cylinder diameter of the piece but do not modify neither the conical factor nor the Window PosX.
Set the Split X dimension like the standard marking field (in this case we put 100 because we have a F160 focal lens).
Split Y dimension instead represents the little slice of circumference that the laser will mark at once (the bigger the slice the faster the marking process). We set 2mm for convenience but it is clear that you can insert any value depending on the part to mark.
The object to mark has to be placed precisely in the center of the marking area, rotated of 90°. In this example we have written a SingleLine text.
The last step consists of inserting a motor node: select from the menu which is displayed after clicking the magic wand icon “Motor”, in the jobs’ tree. It must always be placed before the object to mark in the tree structure – to move it you easily drag it.
Right clicking on the motor node and select Save Actual Position – Set Z on W Height
