Hey Everyone,

 

I recently purchased the 4 Axis X-Winder and have been attempting to run dry trails to ensure that the X-winder functions properly. I have gone through the set-up wizard and ensured everything is set-up correctly. Now the issue I am running into stems from when I open the X-Winder Executer software. The rotary, linear motors will connect without issue but the carriage and mandrel motor will "blink" and display this error.

G-Code Customization: Acceleration

Hello All,I have recently set up my X-Winder but I am running into some issues with the software.

I attempted to use acceleration within the G1 and G6 commands but I did not notice any appreciable acceleration.More generally, has anyone been provided more detailed instructions with respect to customizing the X-Winder's G-Code? The FAQ page mentions a "For Developers: Programming /…

[Meta] Proposal: Keep only the Forum

Hi everyone,I've read the blog entries and forum topics from this community, and they are essencially used in the same way: for questions and to showcase results. Since the community is still rather small, it is essencial to concentrate all the participation on one "place" so that people don't get confused (like me at first) and there is more interaction. I propose to convert all the blog entries to forum topics. Another good addition to the user experience would be to log in using Google or…
