"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…"

"Hi Maxime Fournier,
I am glad to see I am not the only one with these issues. I just recently I emailed the X-Winder crew about this as I am fed up with it. It has been a year since I made this post and I have yet to see any updates to the software.…"

"I wound another tube today with the suggested 20RPM mandrel speed and although I got a better finish, there are still some minor gaps visible. It appears it still needs to wind even slower just to get a no gap finish.

Hopefully this gets fixed soon, because I would like to wind with faster speeds with…"
