I had sliced up some prototype anti-backlash nuts, and started them on a long run. When I came in, the FDM was stopped. Turning on the monitor of the sending computer I found:
At least it was early in the run, so not much material was lost:
The support in the small round spring pockets was digging in to the Y- side of the pocket instead of being centered. I used the SSCAL batch program to send a correction to the FDM 1650. I sliced up the two parts and sent to the FDM, rather than doing a whole trayfull.
The support was still way off center in Y to the model material.
Figuring I moved the wrong way with the SSCAL batch file, I did an opposite move of twice the value, and ran two more parts.
I didn’t have time last night to take photos of the results, but a quick look showed the support had moved even farther off center than the first batch!
I wonder if the SSCAL batch file is stripping the minus sign (-) from the value being passed to the FDM?
