"Hi Vernon,
i try to realize a similar application. Can you send me the C-Code of this winding shown in the Video? Would be great.

"Hello Alastair,
I faced the same problem over the last week or so. If reversing the polarity didn't solve it for you, you can write the M4 S10 C-180 in the same line as your G1 command. If both of them take the same time to complete it will rotate…"

its very easy to reverse the polarity. See the attached image.

"Hi Vernon,
 
M4 seems to work continuously if I don't put a specific rotation angle, unfortuntely it automatically rotates clockwise. The problem then with putting a specific angle is that it completes this before moving onto the next command! We're…"

Vernon Hultzer replied to Alastair Barnett's discussion Rotate Mandrel in CCW direction
"Alastair,
 
From what I understand, the M4 command is a non continuous rotation command, so this means that you have to put an angle of rotation.  You could try a big rotation angle, like C=3,600,000, which is 360x10,000 (10,000 rotations), then use…"

"HI Vernon,
 
Great, so I got the mandrel moving CCW, with the M4 and negative C, but under a G1 the negative C doesn't work and I can't get it to rotate continuously CCW using the M4, so struggling to get CCW mandrel movement while moving the…"

"Hi Vernon,
 
Thanks for your reply, I did think I'd tried that with no luck, but will try again. What version of the software are you running?"

Vernon Hultzer replied to Alastair Barnett's discussion Rotate Mandrel in CCW direction
"Hi,
 
im using code, which rotates the mandrel CW and CCW:
 
M4 S20 C180 [clockwise rotation 180deg]
M4 S20 C-180 [counterclockwise rotation 180 deg]"

"While I'm asking, how does the K value work for acceleration, is this in inch/s/s?
 
Thanks."

I can't get the mandrel to rotate anti-clockwise. Have tried M3 and M5 and also a S-70, none seem to work. M3 still did clockwise, M4 does clockwise, M5 stops the wind, M2 isn't recognised. Any help please, have changed my head setup and would…

Hi All, New to the forum having recently bought a 2X-23 winder, not new to filament winding, so was trying to write my own g-code files and use incremental values for things like layer count so I didn't have to have a very long g-code file.…
