Slaved axis steps per unit
« on: November 08, 2010, 02:17:13 AM »
Hi,

Im just wondering if i can tune the steps per unit 4 2 axes separately and then slave them with mach allowing me to have a different gearing from the motor to the axis on either side of my x axis but still slave them together??

Its a servo system if that makes any difference.

Thanks

Matt

When slaving Mach will put out identical pulses for each axis (master/slave).

Thanks hood, so that wont work then? CAn you think of any other solution apart from changing the mechanical gearing between the motor and the axis??

Only way I can see is either changing the mechanical side of things or if your servo drives have electronic gearing you could possibly do it that way.
