    Axis backlash setting syntax

    I have tried all the admin commands for setting backlash to no avail!

    I want to set Y backlash to .002 as backlash is approx .0028 now, I would like to know the proper syntax to enter this. In older versions there were commands to enter each individual axis backlash, I dont see these commands on version 2.8.3 which is what I am using now.

    any help appreciated

    thanks

    Any reason you don't want to adjust the thrust bearings to minimize the backlash?

    It is just an access problem, I cant get to them without moving a shelf assembly or moving the machine out of position, either is a major hassle.

    I realize that this isnt the way to fix the problem correctly though. I did run a couple parts and the anomaly improved with backlash added and I at least know where the problem is.

    I did figure out the syntax to get the backlash set.

    if you know how to modify your .ini file.

    just need to add BACKLASH = 0.002 in the Y Axis section.

    Thanks for the reply, I did eventually figure out the syntax for it.
