For the most part, kcode seems pretty easy to understand, and the posted definitions in the google folder are very helpful. This post is about the code instructions for both carriage, "/" and "\", and feeder. I have encountered a problem where the carriage tries to reposition the feeder to set up for the next row of knitting, but fails to "grab" the feeder to move it. I feel as though with a better understanding of these commands, I could fix the problem by editing the kcode.
I am posting a screenshot with the offending line of code (I would like to know what is going on in Lines 123-4), plus the preceding lines. Here is a line by line explanation:
- Line 121: carriage moves from right to left, picking up feeder 5 and knitting as it goes
- Line 122: carriage moves from left to right, executing transfers
- Line 123: carriage reposition? Why is "\" on the left and "/" on the right this time?
- Line 124: feeder reposition? When I run the code, it seems to try to reposition the feeder, but fails to grab it. I wonder if I can edit this line so the carriage reaches farther to the left to pick up feeder 5, but I don't understand enough to know how to do that.
- Line 125: Knit row, with carriage moving right to left. Undesired outcome: several stitches on the right are skipped because feeder 5 started out too far over to the left.
