General Mach Discussion / program run screen
« on: April 08, 2014, 03:52:24 PM »
All of sudden I can't see my program run screen (main screen) alto the program is running
I am able to  view all my settings and configuration page etc....
but not the main screen program run screen

If I change to a different XML that I have in Mach 3 Loader I see the
main screen but, not in this other XML

General Mach Discussion / set up in mm moving in inches
« on: November 01, 2012, 12:40:26 PM »
I checked my movement today
in MDI G91G1X10F100
it moves 10 inches the dro says 234.0013
I do X12 it move exactly 2 more inches 12 inches
dro says 304.008

the machine is set-up in mm's
but, it is moving in inches

want to thank everyone for puttiing up
with all these questions and then helping out...

wonder why I even spent 10K on a machine
and I don't know what I am doing...

okay,
I used the code that you send me
the moves were made now here's the crazy thing

instead of moving 10mm...it moved 10 inches....
the dro reads 254.0013 which practically right on 10 inches
the same if I use X12 it moves 12 inches and the dro says 304.800

the machine is set up in mm's

let me ask,
when I am moving away from machine home should my DRO's
be reading in the negative or the positive...when I am at machine
home they all read + zero's and when I moving away into the table
they read in the negatives...this is right isn't it.....

thanks for help, I appreciate it...the instructional videos while I
appreciate them, they are confusing.....

I been trying to figure out how to make sure I am in G90 absolute mode
I went to offsets and it says I am in G54 offsets...I didn't enter that it
must have picked that on its own....

how do I insure what mode I am in whether absolute G90 or incremental ??

yeah, you're right it won't accept the letter o
I typed it right in the machine...don't know why
I added an extra letter when I typed it here....

nevertheless, I am going to try from the xoyo position
instead of machine home to see if that makes a difference
and I need to find out if I am on absolute or incremental

it was suggested that I check to see if I am actually moving as far as the DRO's say
when I put in G0X10 the axis moves from machine home to nearly the middle of the table
put the same in y axis it moves over to half way of the table...
it doesn't matter what length I put in it moves the exact same spot every time same
for both X and Y....I am set-up in mm's

what would cause this????
