Rotary glitch n Mach3
« on: July 12, 2016, 08:57:29 PM »
G'day Guys, trialing my 6 head rotary CNC I am just finishing up and I am having a bit of an issue, I am creating my tool paths using Deskproto for continuous rotation as I am cutting with saw blades. During the revolutions on A axis I am getting these slight jerky movements in the same spot on every turn. I thought it maybe something to do with Deskproto but when I run tool paths created in Aspire it did the same thing? If you jog A axis or even while calibrating the axis to set steps per it's not there. Has anyone come across this before? Any help greatly appreciated, cheers Paul.

Open Windows Task Manager while the machine is running and monitor CPU usage.
Also, try turning off the toolpath display and see if it helps.

Ok thanks Gerry, I will give that a go. Managed to get rid of 90% of it this morning by fine tuning my Velocity in A Axis, I will see if the other suggestions tidy up the last of it, cheers Paul.
