Title: Joging help needed
Post by: Bob Hepple on October 07, 2007, 10:12:41 AM
 ;) Need some help if anyone could be so kind  I use the shuttle pro and downloaded latest plug inn along with latest version of mach. I am getting lost with the joging process.  1 I would like to get the jog information bar up instead of pressing tab. I presume you could get a mackro to do this  but I am at a loss as to where to start?? and also when I set the centre wheel to be in centre wheel incremental  mode how do I ajust the speed it is inrementally joging. I dont know why but 1 min it is crawling and the next it is at a reasonable speed but I do not know why :-[ ANY HELP PLEASE  ???

There is a macro call but  you could just move the controls to the main screen if you like in Screen4

thanks

 8) I know this is daft but what is screen 4. I use my shuttle pro to set up my machine like jog-feed zero axis etc. and have used a screen set called sim soft BUT this does not give me the controll I am afte,r so the Mach screen is back if I could call the jog screen (tab) this would be very useful.. thanks for you help any thoughts..

Screen 4 is the programme that comes with Mach so that you can alter your screenset or make a completely new one up. Quite a few people have made there own screensets and I have done one for my mill. It includes the controls for my MPG on the main page and also on the MDI screen and does away with a lot of the functions I dont use that are on the standard screens.
