Slave axis question
« on: August 22, 2011, 10:07:02 PM »
Is there a way to just set 2 step pins and 2 direction pins to one axis instead of using up a axis for the slave?
I want to add 2 axis to the head of a plasma table to do circular bevels and also have a pipe cutting attachment on the side, so this will be 6 axis. But the problem is that the Y axis is dual drive so I have to waste a axis here as a slave...

Any ideas (besides unplugging one when I want to use a feature)

Thanks
Dave

TOMc over at CandCNC has a UBOB that does Hardware axis slaving to save the extra axis for slaved gantries. May want to give him a call.
