I plot designs 6400 wide on my 3200 pixel eggbot (1.8° motor) without problems
( with the “Wrap around” option enabled )
The largest canvas size I have used was 32000 pixels (to get a 10 turn spiral of text on the egg – the text go between diagonal corners).
What happens if you plot a continuos line?
I might get a 0.9° motor for some experimentation, reckon the added resolution won’t be of much use since the arch length for a 48mm diameter egg will be 0.047mm/microstep for the eggmotor and 0.069mm/microstep for the pen (70mm dia circle). What’s your experience plotting with this motor (apart from the above problems).
