Chapter 8: Gearing
Gearing is a synchronized motion that uses one axis' velocity to control another's. It links two axes: master and slave. After linking them you move the master axis. During the master's movement, the slave's velocity always follows the master's, until the gearing is aborted. The slave's position is not monitored or controlled while its velocity is being synchronized with the master's.
In other words, gearing is velocity synchronization. The easy way to learn how gearing works is to imagine the master and slave axes as two gears. One gear (master) drives another (slave). Every master can be the slave of another axis. You can create a gearing chain by attaching axes one by one.
In this chapter, you'll learn how to make a gear move.
