General Mach Discussion / machining splines causes lost steps?
« on: December 20, 2007, 04:34:51 AM »
hi guys, on a router,we have a y axis which is losing about 2mm on 400mm dia circle when splines are machined, in this case little curved pockets for fan blades which are in a patterned aray around the perimeter of a circle. this problem only occurs when splines are machined and not arcs. we are running latest mach3 and am stumped and pulling my hair out over this one, can any body shed any light on this boggle? any help much appreciated...thanks marc.
