some improvements

C or DHR too slow for G3 or G6 error

Hi    Trying to get my 4 axis to do a test part and I keep getting various too slow errors at the ends. I've tried slowing things down, splitting the USB hubs so they aren't daisy chained and a different PC. Nothing seems to consistently fix it. Has anyone else seen this and fixed it? thanks  greg

"I've tried some 3M Duallock Velcro as a pin ring.
I am using the 4 axis model in 3 axis mode and there there is no option for extra 360 deg in every pass."

"I use "Add extra 360deg. to every pass" in XWinder settings...No problem.
For angles 33° I think about pin rings...

Hi thereI was wondering if it is possible to adjust the transition speed at the ends of the winding. As the ends tend to slip I am thinking a slower Transition from 45 to 90 degrees at the ends may improve this problem.Any thoughts on that?

"Hi
 I see a some xwinder G codes I don't see in mach3 (G5, G6) and parameters as well. Do you change the code a lot to run on Mach3? An example of xwinder code and what you change it to would be really helpful.
thanks  greg"

"Hi
 This isn't really on this topic. I was hoping to find out how you all start a thread. I have a 4 axis winder that I'm having issues with.
I don't see a place to start a new thread. Any help would be appreciated.
