Xhorse Condor XC-Mini Volvo HU56R Bug Solution

Q:
I just bought condor mini key cutter for one month, and already update to latest firmware, v2.1.1. Volvo HU56 thickness setting wrongly, it should be 2.5mm, and cutting thickness should be 1mm. volvo v40 key eats like 0.6 or more mm deeper than it should. it ate the clamp!!! and not very accurate.
condor-mini-volvo-hu56-error
A:
About Volvo HU56R condor machine database the key thickness is 3mm and cutting depth is 1.25mm
but if fact,users key is different, thickness is 2.5mm and cutting depth is 1mm.
so users can use define key data first ,named ‘HU56R-1_U’,later Xhorse will find a better solution.
1.connect PC to Condor machine
2.use attached software, sync’HU56R-1_U’ to condor xc-mini key cutting machine
3.select ‘cut by bitting’—enter ‘HU56R’ you will find HU56R-1_U,then cutting.
Note: Contact Xhorse engineer to get the define key data, skype: Xhorse-Support2.
