tangential movement
« on: April 23, 2006, 12:04:31 PM »
   Hi there

  I was wondering if you could help me with a problem i have with a project.
  I want the tool axis(A axis) to move in a tangential route in relation to the x-y plane movement vector.
  I think this is programmed in the designed section(ex Autocad???).Or not?Is there any specail G-code for this function?

  I would appreciate any assistance.
   
    Thanks.
       
    Steve

Hello Steve there is a setting under "settings" page where you can turn on tangential control. This will turn the A axis as the machine moves around the file...

Steve,

Did you ever get this to work?
