Title: Backlash Use Info
Post by: Garyv on October 02, 2006, 01:50:10 PM
I am wondering what experiances with using the backlash feature in Mach 3 that you have had ?
   I am getting ready to run a small part out finally got the code where I want it , ( lot of trial and error)
 But I desided to add my backlash comp in conf screen and It works fine manually moving X and Y, I added a comp of .005 on each that seems to work on my mill..
    But I have not run a G code with it yet .
    What I am wondering is ,
  Is the Backlash comp taking concideation of arcs and partial movements when running the code? , I'm sure it does but was wondering how it is set., I can understand a x and y movement just compinsates the .005 thou in to the return but how is it doing arcs and such?
 Just wondering

It will correct the lash at every quadrant... You are right in thinking that arcs could be a problem :)

Hope that helps
