Axes Real Position Feedback
edited July 2021 in Motor Control
I need to know the real position of the axes in a kind of feedback from the firmware. I've tried M114 but, the answer is given with the ending position of the current movement, not the real positions of the axes. I know these is an open loop motion control, but I thought M114 could give the position updated after each step or something like that. There is an alternative to get the real position as feedback?
So no, you only can get position at the end of the moves. Logic is to always add changes to these which is all we need to know. Exception is z leveling where we use z count to see where we are.
would return steps counter, but such responses are always with delay due to move buffering and command locking. Only when no moves are being send or command queue is empty it will be quite timely.
Yeap, I also try that. It's the same result, while moving, gives back the last calculated position, but in steps
