General Mach Discussion / G84 reverse time
« on: September 08, 2013, 02:15:38 PM »
I am testing my emco vmc100 with mach3 every works fine but i do not understand one thing

I use the g84 for tapping that works oke except that if the tap is at the bottom the spindle reverses but it takes a second or so before the z-axis moves up. I think that should be immediatly?

Thank you for your reply

I use the 1024 mach screen and i made an extra page in tis screen set. All works fine except the systemkeys like jogging the axis with the keyboard arrow keys. If i select an other (standard) page the keys work well

Tnx for you reply


Oke its clear now,
Thanks for your reply and your explanation

Oke tnx, but hw is that done with 3d milling, i assume all axis are moving seperately with their own feedrate?
Tnx tantan


tnx for your fast reply, but this is not the effect i want, i will try to explain what i need.

the z-axis has to move to z90 with f100
while the z-axis is moving the a-axis has to swing with rapid speed (G0) between -0.5 and +0.5 degrees.

i hope this will help to become a sollution.

tnx tantan

what i want is swinging the a-axis while the z-axis is moving to a position. how is that posible in vb?
i made this but this wil move the z-axis first and then swing the a-axis. i want this simultaneously

counter = 0
code "g1 z90 f100"

While counter < 20
 code "g0 a0.5"
 While ismoving()
 code "g0 a-0.5"
 While ismoving()

thank you for your reply.
