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.

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…

Using Xwinder to apply Heat Shrink Tape?

Hi All!I am about ready to get the Xwinder however does anyone know if the Xwinder has the ability to, or can be modified to, wrap the mandrel and part with Dunstone's Heat Shrink Tape? The application we plan on using it for requires Heat Shrink tape at 2.5" width and 50% overlap.Looking at the design of the Xwinder I believe that I would probably have to modify the delivery head to be able to pass through the 2.5" wide tape.If anyone has been able to do that or has any input I would really…

"The X-Winder came with a powered USB hub and each time I take a trial I ensure that it is being powered via the wall socket and not my laptop first."
