Ok, that makes sense. I'll try that. Thanks so much.

General Mach Discussion / Axis got off track somehow.
« on: January 15, 2012, 07:39:41 PM »
Hi, I was running a 3 axis toolpath and in the process the X axis got out of whack so that in the middle of the run the mill was suddenly cutting several inches to the right of where Mach said it should be. It had started out fine and everything going as it normaly does. Could someone help me find the possibilities that would cause the mill to do that?
Everything is clamped down tight. Mach showed nothing out of place. The mill still seems to have free motion in all directions and works fine with the joystick. But the X axis shows 3 or so inches off from where it acutally is. Simulation runs in RhinoCam and Mach both looked good.
Thanks for any suggestions,
puzzled,
Dwight

First, under the config heading (top left) drop down menu there is one called conffig plugins. When that comes up check and configure joystick.

keygrabber is a little program that allows use orf the buttons on the joystick. just found that myself no t long ago.

Hope that works for you.

Have you run keygrabber yet? It is in the mach folder that was installed with the program.

Note to Noobies, like me. There is a very useful wiki under documentation this website that has listings of the hotkeys.

Hi,
I am so happy with my Mach3. It is easy to learn and does everything I could ask. And the forum gurus are the best.  I would like to know if it is possible to have a hotkey to switch between continuous jog and step jog.
Thanks,
Dwight

I'm interested in a joystick too. TOTALLYRC, does proportional mean that with a small move of the joystick it moves slowly and the more extreme over it goes the faster the move?
Thanks,
Dwight
