Backlash not available?

Backlash not available?

Postby Mchammer.83 » 17 Feb 2016, 13:27

Hi.

I acquired a USB controller from build your own cnc which was stated to be based on the mk1. I've set up my machine for the first runs and tried to adjust backlash- but the enable is grayed out?

Does this board support backlash?

If not, the controller is useless to me. I will likely pick up a new controller- say the mk3. Can the license for the software be transferred to the mk3? Because the BYOCNC board will likely end up in the bin.

Any advice would be very much appreciated.
Many thanks.

Mk1 does support backlash. Don't mind the enable checkbox.

Cheers for such a prompt reply. For absolute clarity, the board I'm using is based on the mk1 board (as stated on the build your cnc website/shop). I would assume that the backlash compensation is controlled through the software- so it should be compatible with this board?

Sorry for any double up in question- just making sure I can press on with my current design.

Thanks.

Yes, it should work with your board.
