A axis rotation clearance

A axis rotation clearance

Hi folks!

I run a 5 axis addon on my small CNC machine, and have got some clearance issues.

First of all check the picture included for a reference.


If I machine the top side of my stock, and want to machine the back side afterwards, I run into clearance issues. 

The stock holder will hit my spindle. If I move my x axis to the left, I've got enough clearance to rotate the part over. 

This is exactly what I am doing right now, but would love the machine to move over to a safe X before rotating the A axis.


Is there a way to implement this automatically into the code? It would save alot of time for me!


Thanks in advance,

I am sorry. Meant to say rotation of C axis, not the A axis.
