Turner Hunt commented on Mayank Gautam's blog post Connecting 2 Motors for Simultaneously Winding of 2 Mandrels
"Mayank - As you know, the X-Winder is a highly modifiable filament winding machine and you could add a second mandrel above the main mandrel by extending the vertical mandrel posts. You could gear the second mandrel to the firest mandrel and only…"

Turner Hunt commented on Emma Dorsey's blog post DH Linear Problem // "C too slow for G5 move" Error
"See attached - please revise your dimensions. You need to give more time for the DH to withdraw itself from its most forward position (this is the source of the "too slow" error). Also, on the "detached" USB problem, replace your un-powered USB hub…"

Turner Hunt commented on Emma Dorsey's blog post DH Linear Problem // "C too slow for G5 move" Error
"Pleae respond to this with a screen shot of the Designer software showing the dimensioned measurements of the mandrel. Its possible that the fore/aft distance of the DH is very short or very long causing ther "too slow" error message - its also…"

"Chris,
 
Chris,
This sounds like a USB hub problem. A powered USB hub will likely solve your problem, the kind of USB hub that plugs into the wall and is externally powered. A powered six port USB hub is generally about US$20. Sometimes the PC that…"

"Hi Chris,
A good resource to help answer your 4-Axis winding questions is this video on our YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/MxvUU7Ig1yI
This video answers why the winding angle is a dependent variable, not an independent variable that you have…"

Turner Hunt commented on waseem's blog post Detached:phidgetStepper Phidget
"The X-Winder ships with an un-powered USB hub. Some PCs do not provide enough thru the USD socket to power this USB Hub. If you purchase a powered USB Hub for about $15 USD this will solve your "Detached" issue."

Turner Hunt commented on waseem's blog post using4x-34 for 3Axis mode wining
"In version 4.22 of the X-Winder software, we have removed 3-axis winding because it has not produced good results. We have added 2-Axis winding as a replacement and you need the 2X-Delivery head for 4-Axis winder to accomplish 2-Axis winding on the…"

Turner Hunt replied to max k's discussion limit switch issue
"We've located this bug in the code, it happens to be an inverse tanget function that divides by zero, and this is what causes the carriage to ram the limit switch ... this should never happen. It happens on some combinations of mandrel diameter and…"

Turner Hunt commented on Luke's blog post Windings are too tight
"Once you apply the receipt paper and the packing tape, just try to remove that first without any winding. If you can't remove jsut the paner and the tape by itself, you won't be able to remove the fully winded part either."

Turner Hunt commented on Samuel VanDenBerg's blog post Does anyone us a filament modeling software?
"Samuel,
 
 Samuel,
 
There is a video on our YouTube channel about how to modify a g-code file for spool winding you can use the same principle to eliminate the carriage dwells.
 
If you have any questions email me at xfo@xwinder.com
