Linear-Motion FB

See Add Linear-Motion FB

The default output from the Linear-Motion FB is equal to the Master-Machine-Angle - MMA.

Use the Linear-Motion dialog-box to delay or advance the output relative to the Master-Machine-Angle.

Note: I usually use a Gearing FB to control the motion-data relative to the Master-Machine-Angle.
