Awesome work DJ, as always.
I am not up to speed on the 0 - release and -1 - skip.
Can you elaborate on this or do I need to go back and re-read a tutorial?
@rz90208 in the auto positioner servo positions set to 0 will be released and servo positions set to -1 will be ignored when the auto-positioner is running...
Thank you Richard, I will have to play around with that to see how I can use it in my scripting.
I will be using the Auto-Positioner a lot more when my InMoov is complete.
