Are there any plans for the gcode viewer in CP to render out gcode’s with a A Axis? As of now, it looks like a stretched barcode.

This has been talked about but would you be up for forking the 3d viewer and seeing if you can get it to work?

I don’t even know where to begin with that.

Could you send over any sample Gcode and perhaps what it should look like in the 3D viewer? I had a need over the weekend to do some 4th axis work so I was craving the same thing as you, but I’m trying to get my bearings straight on how to show 4th axis visually? I presume I would just wrap XYZ data around a cylinder and calculate their new XYZ values?

Sure.

Ok, and then any picture of how this should render correctly?

(y milord) #7

Yeah sorry.

Did any of that help?

(JOHN LAUER) #9

Yes it did. Thanks.

Made any progress on this?

No. Sadly I don’t think I’ll be able to get to it for a long while. I’m
trying to get the new Serial Port JSON Server released and it’s been a lot
of work.
