5 axis CNC Router/3d printer

Post by George Butty » Thu Apr 01, 2021 1:35 am

Hi Tom, finally got to the control setup for the large scale 5 axis router/ 3d printer I am building. (X 16' Y 8' Z 4' travels with B and C head head).
I purchased your Kflop and Kanalog boards for this. I am running Teknic clear path motors and I will be using the step and direction signals
to run the motors. You previously said to run 6 axis with the Kanalog (Master\Slave on Y axis) I need to set the pulse and direction output to JP4 and JP6. I am not sure about where the FPGA code has to go to activate it. Is it in the main Initialization C program?
Thanks
George

Does it matter where in the program. Should it be right at the beginning?

Yes at the begining of the main() function would be good. It needs to be executed once (or more times) after a power cycle before the Step/Dir generators are used.

Thanks, I suspect I will be bugging you as things start moving around.
