The 5 axis post procrocessor-2

This uses all axes except the ‘vertical’ axis. This is similar to 5axis option one but the roles of the roll and yaw axes are reversed. The yaw axis is used to eliminate twist in the fibre and the roll to take up the wind angle and keep the band central on the payout roller.

Operation of this post processor is identical to the standard 4 axis post processor. Using the correct value of payout eye extension is essential as when the yaw axis is moved there must be compensation in the carriage and cross-feed axes if this rotation is not centred about the end of the delivery eye.
