I am thinking of building a 3d printer with a rotating head, dragknife type. It would be a machine with 4 axes, with the peculiarity that the fourth axis keeps the head oriented in the forward direction.
Does anyone have experience with these types of applications? Where can I find a cnc driver with the ability to handle that 4th axis? Professional type.
I have looked in omron but the fourth axis can not make the turn of the aplication head.
The work area is 2000x1500x800 mm and the weight of the head is 6 kg.
All ideas will be welcome.
Thanks in advance.
