4th Axis help
« on: June 24, 2009, 12:40:34 PM »
Ok I looked and I cant find an answer,

I have a router table converted to do cylindrical engrraving.

My problem is feed rates are all screwed up.

When A is combined with X everything goes slow. When X is the only axis movining it is too fast.

I know angular feedrate is used when turnnig A and linear when moving X or Z.

How do I get A to feed in a linear fassion so it works with X????

I am using Artcam Pro and outputing Y2A on a post that was included with it.

I outputs A in degreees. and feed rate in the code does not change.

Please help I have a customer waiting for some parts

Can you share what you found?

I'm working on a 4th axis also and I have not tackled the feed rate issue yet.
