Slow Rotary Axis: Solution

Postby sgano » Sat Aug 20, 2016 10:03 pm

I wanted to share with you all a program I wrote that converts G94 tool paths to G93 (inverse time mode). This solves the problem of the rotary axis running so slowly when using tool paths exported from VCarve/Aspire.

I setup a website to explain it in more detail (including a video demo -- skip to the end of the video if you want to see the speed comparison):

Note: you may need to edit your rotary post processor -- the one posted on this forum has a slight issue with the formatting (it doesn't have a space between the X,Y,Z,A values for rapid moves -- I also included an example post processor that I have tested and works well.
