calibrating
« on: February 14, 2011, 02:50:49 PM »
Hello all, I am trying to calibrate my dividing head (rotary axis) and am having the following problem. I am using the set steps utility in the settings screen and when I set the amount of degrees I want the divhead to turn a weird thing happens. If I set 360 degrees no movement occurs. If I set 359 degrees it moves 1 degree in the opposite direction. The position is correct but the stupid thing took a shortcut! If I set 330 degrees it goes 30 degrees the other way. Am I doing something completely dumb or should I operate the thing via a mirror ;D (lol) Any ideas?

Les

It will depend if it is set in incremental or absolute mode

Also check in general config for the check box with Rot 360 rollover and ang short Rot on G0

Just play with setting
