back ring ellipsoid g-code

Published Jan. 25, 2018, 12:37 p.m.

The g-code has a curve programmed in for the tool path to follow. The tool gets progressively closer to the finished curve with each pass.

I used the same routine as for the front section ellipsoid, but I shouldn't have since the back is not meant to be an ellipse. I fudged it by changing the parameters of the ellipse to create the main part of the curvature at the extremity, i.e. a low height ellipse. In future I should do a separate routine for this cut. Yeah lazy bones, I should listen to myself!
