How do I reset to 0 degrees 4th axis without unwinding?
« on: December 28, 2007, 04:41:10 PM »
Hello Forum,

I have a to repeat a process several times that involves my 4th (or A) axis.  What's the best/easiest way to reset to 0 degrees 4th axis without unwinding between operations?

Also, can that be automated to run from gCode?  Thanks!
