The corexy kinematics is a complex motion system where X or Y motor move together or opposite of each other to move the carriage from left to right or towards or away . If you were to move just one motor you would see the print head move diagonal.. If the two motors move opposite of each other the print head will move along the X-axis, If the two motors move in the same direction the carriage will move along the Y-axis.
CoreXY Kinematics Explained
- Both Motors Move Clockwise >> Carriage Moves Left
- Both Motors Move Counter Clockwise>> Carriage Moves Right
- Both Motors Move Opposite of Each Other>> Carriage Moves Toward & Away
- One Motor Moves>> Carriage Moves Diagonal
