Gentlemen,
I have a 5 axis cutter diameter compensation routine working in my cam
package. I am studying the LinuxCNC docs to figure out where/how to
implement it.
As of now it is not universally applicable. It is meant to work on a
machine with the two axis head
with the B axis carrying the A axis and the A axis carrying the spindle.
Like the 5 axis blue cinci at MPM.
The dropbox links are the program and two screen shots to help visualize
what the program is doing.
The parallel lines in the pictures are tool paths with different
compensation values.
Questions and/or comments are appreciated.
