Varible Diameters

Hello Everyone,

 Still very new to winding and so far things are moving forward easily. I have a project to do with a cylinder that has different diameters and tapered sections throughout the length maintaining a constant thickness. Has anyone had success doing similar shapes and if so could you point me in the right direction ??

Thanks !!!

Random Delivery Head Fault

Hi, Has anyone else encountered an error with the delivery head were at a random point in a wind sequence it will just ram the payout eye into the mandrel and drag it along to the end of carriage axis? I have checked the g-code and cant find any error there, I have also found if I stop the g-code executor the machine error movement continues? This error appears to be effecting axis 3 & 4.. I have this problem ongoing & its to the point were I cant complete more than 5 to 10 helical passes…

"No. I noticed just that if you do not press a pause during the program execution, sometimes it can work without failures."
