Has anyone experienced difficulties with the Trotec rotary device? The rotary is very well made and is rock solid. However, although my rotary works fine mechanically, I have the unusual situation of the laser burning differently than what is shown in the WYSIWYG illustration in the Job Control queue. The Corel drawing is fine, the print preview is fine and the transfer to the Job Control software is fine, but the actual burn is reversed from the WYSIWYG . I've spoken to the Trotec folks but they are scratching their heads at the moment. Anyone got any ideas? Thanx in advance.

invert your drawing or mirror it to get by 4 now.

I don't want to step on anyone's toes but have they asked you to update the firmware in the laser with the rotary plugged in? If the rotary is running a different version of firmware from the rest of the machine, this can happen.

You can check this in Job Control by going under Settings->Information and looking at the numbers beside X,Y,Z & R. If they are not identical, then you need to do a firmware update.
