Re: Rigid tapping

Hi Francois,

The video is not useful. Please explain what you are expecting. Post the GCode (not a photo). Also your C programs and what is printed on the Console Screen.

Re: Rigid tapping

Init.c says Spindle Axis is 4 but tapping.c has: #define SPINDLE_AXIS 3 // Spindle Axis With Encoder Feedback That Tapping.c program is for an open loop Spindle controlled by a DAC and direction bits. Yours appears to be a closed loop axis where it can be controlled with Axis Move commands. So you m...
