That is one of the things that sold me on the 540 and in the unlikely event one does go bad just put the a axis driver in the slot of the offending driver and order a new one .Speaking of service, each axis in that G540 is a separate card, actually using the a variant of 251's like I now have, so burning out something doesn't mean you've ruined the whole system.
That is a great Idea if something where ever to happen.Tin Falcon said:That is one of the things that sold me on the 540 and in the unlikely event one does go bad just put the a axis driver in the slot of the offending driver and order a new one .
Thanks, yeah, I know... This was running a sample threading routine that comes with EMC, and the zero point was...at the bottom of the thread if I remember correctly. Onscreen, it looked like it was going to start threading out where the cutter started chamfering air. ;D I can't wait to start using this thing for real!steamboatmodel said:If I may make one suggestion, some thing I learned running commercial CNC. You need to move the start point over from the end of the work so that you are cutting air for about three or four thread pitched before it starts cutting metal. this allows everything to come up to speed and synchronize at the start of each cut.
