To calibrate a kinematic cutting head in the software should always be the last resort. A good calibration on the CNC controller will give more accurate calibrations.
- To calibrate the cutting head, start IGEMS CAD/CAM, open the attached file (Calibration.dig) in IGEMS CAD/CAM and cut the part.
- Open the "Setup" dialogue and click on the "Edit machine" icon. Under "5 Axis Kinematic" you want to activate the "Use software RTCP" option. All the values to the right must be equal before you can calibrate the cutting head.
- Measure the part on all eight points described in the image below (Number 4) and input the value on each side. It's important to measure each side as they were cut. The right side measurement is number 1 etc.
Now you have calibrated your IGEMS Tilter.
