Hi, we are building a 4-axis hot wire cutter using a horizontal axis with a vertical axis attached, along with a matched pair of horizontal/vertical axis separated by 4ft with a suspended between them. We purchased a controller with the 5th axis option and I was wondering if we use the X and Z for one axis and the A and B for the other axis will there be any problems (assuming we have gcode to drive it). We were worried if the feed rate will be correct if we are using a G1 for the moves. Will the feed rate be calculated using x,y,z,a,b when it really should be calculated using just the X and Z? Does a and b even change the feed rate?
Thanks for any help.
