Re: Spindle Speed Encoder

Hi. I'm not totally in the know with all of your hardware, but I can tell you that a $25 OMRON encoder works awesome with the Centroid acorn. Extremely accurate spindle feedback for tapping and threading.

I've been using this for a while now and, so far, no problems. It works pretty good.

Re: Splines and gears

You may want to check out Fusion360. There are some nice features in there to generate gears. Then, you can just post for the Centroid control.

I know where you can download a nice post, if you're interested.

Re: Acorn 3d model

Nice. Fusion360? Are you sharing the file? If so, I know a few guys (myself included) that would like that.

Re: encoder suitability

Good point.

You can also change the sign (positive or negative) for the number of encoder pulses in the CNC wizard.

Encoders are cool...

Re: Ricky Nelson said it best.

I feel sorry for that dude. I can't imagine him being able to successfully overcome any kind of technical challenges with an attitude like that.
