Slave axis control
« on: December 08, 2020, 06:39:37 AM »

Is there any way i can lock the rotation direction for the slave axis. My application is intended to mill model engine cranks and cam shafts so while the Z and Y axis perform a circular motion the A axis needs to be sincronized with the Y axis and always turn in one direction even when the Y axis reverses during the circular motion. Also if anyone can give me an idea as to how to sincronize the A axis it would be great.
Thank you in advance for your help

All axis commanded on the same line are synchronised so G01 G90 Y10. Z10. A30. F100. will all start and finish at the same time.

The rotation will depend on the setting of the 'Rot 360 rollover' and 'Short path on G0'
