Common Questions for Everyday Users


Gary McNatt, Xenetech Technical Support RepresentativeLubricating Your Rotary

Wipe down the leadscrews and use only Teflon-based lubricants such as Super Lube or Tri-Flo. When done you should slew your table to spread the lubricant. We have a slew file already in your XOT folder for you. Just load the one for your table size into XGW. Alternatively, Viper systems running VCS have built-in maintenance jobs accessible from the touchpad. Click here to view a knowledgebase article on all system maintenance.

Clean vs. Lean

A simple trick to reduce the rotary and laser engraving time of True Type fonts, is to turn off the cleaning pass.
By setting to “don’t engrave”, under the Hatch Fill Setup Menu you can significantly reduce engraving time. Remember to save your preferences if you want to set this as default behavior.
