A and Y axis machine setup on Mach4 Mill
« on: December 10, 2018, 11:22:32 AM »
The Gcode for the A axis is in degrees and Y axis linear in inches.
The A motor Counts per unit are Counts per degree and the Y motor is Counts per inch. A correct feed rate can’t be established with different types of units. Other software like Mach3 and Haas use the diameter or radius of the A axis work surface to calculate a linear feed rate.  They also have a place in the software to enter that parameter. Is there a way to do this in Mach4?

I’d appreciate any help.
