Does anyone us a filament modeling software?

Hello, I'm having some issues with my fiber placement. Trying to wind dry fiber onto a smaller spool with flanges, and the winder is dwelling on  one side of the spool and not the other or will switch back and forth. Wondering if there is any modeling software that will work with the xwinder for filament winding. 

-Cheers

Purchasing 4X-23

Hi, I am looking to purchase the 4X-23 filament winder.However adding the item to my cart and estimating shipping and tax, it shows a $345 charge for tax.  Is this a charge for sales tax? If so, I am in a state which does not have sales tax so this charge should not be there.  What is this additional tax charge for? Thanks

Software issue

Hello everyone,I tried the newest version 4.21 of the software on my 4x-23 machine but I have some issues :When I order home or build from the designer software, the setup wizard window appears, then I set up every parameters (assigned boards, motors amperage etc...) and once it's done the X-winder executor window is here but nothing happens. During that period hissing can be heard from the stepper motors and those of the DH become very hot, I assume they receive a too high amperage.Does anyone…

Carriage calibration 4X-23

Hi all.We have a 4X-23 X-Winder. At step 4 of the Setup wizard, we have the issue that the carriage don't move towards the limit switch after pressing the button "Go to the limit switch". Without this calibration the values of the z axis aren't correct. By manual moving the carriage (z axis) left means moving away from the limit switch, right is towards the limit switch. I think this is the way the carraige should move. Do anyone has an idea to solve this problem?Furthermore, there is no…

"Hi Alexander,
Thanks for your feedback, I would be happy to have a look to your g-code and try it. I usually work with a 3,268 inches diameter (I can go up to 8 inches) and a 8 inches length."

"Hi Maxime Fournier,
I did try the wind with an old Computer. It is a dell optiplex 745 with a dual core processor and only 2GB of RAM. It has windows 7 ultimate. I still ended up with displacement.
I went to device manager and turned off the power m…"

"Alexander,
The problem may be due to a delay accumulated from the computer through USB connections, hubs and boards to each motor.
As each board gives the signal to one motor, if the delay is diferent from one to another, then this could explain gap…"

"Milos Marec,
I got home and I checked the files. The file that is saved with a .X2G extension is the gcode file and the .X2D is the design file. The .X2G is the file you can edit in NotePad and should save as .X2G format."

Alexander Solis replied to Miloš Marec's discussion Hand editing of G-Code
"Hi Milos Marec,
Is the .x2d file type in the XW_GCODE folder? If it is not there then that is the designer file. There should be two files that are saved by the designer. One is a designer file and the other is the g-code file that can be edited in…"
