General Mach Discussion / Pierce delay
« on: February 17, 2019, 01:56:54 PM »
Can anyone get a pierce delay under 1 second, my mach 3 will not respond to anything like .9 .8 .7 and so on.
Only with 1 second or more it reads it.
It was working and reading under 1 second until I installed a smooth stepper.
I have tried checking and unchecking dwell in milliseconds.
I put one second in sheet cam it works I put one second in mach 3 and it works, then I try .9 and it moves the machine instantly, no delay.
I cant be the only one with this problem but looks like it so far.
Help please....

So I got this problem that is driving me *********ing nuts.
Everything was working ok but then I installed a smooth stepper so I could have a new faster computer.
Now for whatever reason mach 3 will not Recognise any pierce delay under 1 second like .4 or .7
If i set it to 1 or anything higher it works perfect.
I need it around .3 for 14 gauge steel, even quarter inch steel I dont think I need 1 second pierce delay.
This sucks so bad, I put a pierce delay in sheet cam under 1 second, wont work, but 1 second will.
Or I try and put the spindle spin up speed to .5 wont read it worth ********* but I put it at 1 works perfect.
I cant be the only one this doesnt work with, there is a ton of smooth steppers sold.
Also the plunge safety clearance does not work with whatever number I put in, but its working with a default of what looks like .2 so any difference in height with the steel it will set off my probe and just stall everything, I need it a .5 or 1
All this worked before with an old computer and the parallel port, I dont get why its different with a smooth stepper.
