I’m trying to understand how the various uTurn settings affect the end result. I find I have to tinker with it for a while before I get what I want including entry/exit triggers. I’m hoping to learn how to do it a bit more mathematically.
Firstly, I notice a difference between some of the uTurn types. The Dubins and pattern #1 & #2 all display as a series of dots but pattern #3 (useful for a long train, eg air seeder) looks like a solid line for the actual pattern, with only as many dots as you set uTurn length (one for each meter). Is there anything significant about this?
Secondly, I noticed that only the Dubins option actually lines up with the uTurn Distance from Bounds reference line/setting. (see above screenshots) Is there a reason for this? I’d expect using half of my tool width on a fixed tool should be the min safe distance but unless I’m using Dubins, I have to use a lower number to maximize my turn length.
Thirdly, it takes me a few more turns before I dial in the uTurn Length and entry/exit numbers.
The uTurn length setting & counter (with the red X that shows while executing a uTurn) don’t behave consistently so all the numbers need readjusting when switching between types of patterns and tool widths.
Fourthly, are the uTurn settings saved at all with the vehicle, tool or enviro?
