Coordinated Motion and Single axis motion

Post by david.b.taylor » Tue Oct 01, 2019 4:04 pm

I am using the C# .Net Libs.

Trying to us the Coordinated motions moves, then use single axis moves to move a carriage round on our machines.
The behavior i am getting is the Coordinated moves are losing the origin of the carriage.
is there a method to using both options in the .Net Libs;

Hi David,

The Coordinated Motion Class basically assumes any motion will start from where it last moved. In the event something else changes the current axes positions then the Coordinated Motion Class should be re-synchronized to the current position before doing any motion. This call should do this. This should also be performed on the first use of coordinated motion if the starting position is not zero. Note it is not necessary to do anything with the returned destinations if you don't need them.

Could this be the issue?
