4th axis
« on: December 01, 2010, 05:19:26 PM »
I want to build a 4th axis for my mill I would like to drive it with a ac servo motor. I'm running my machine with an AJAXCNC dc3io kit. It uses a mach3 plugin to run and it works well. I do not know how to add the 4th axis to my setup. Ajax offers a 1 axis expansion plc but it's for a brushed dc servo. I need to know if I can run ajaxcnc's plugin and also use a modbus device or something to run the 4th axis.

I would guess the answer would be no as the Plugin for the Ajax system reroutes all the motion code to their controller for output.

But you should confirm this with the AJAX group.

Just a thought,(;-) TP
