Hi, Zoltan

This is for Mach3D1.90.07? and on.

Top left of screen click on Config, select General Config...., find Startup Modals, Put a check in Use Init String on ALL "Resets Box", then Add your F-speed in window just below, after the G80, then click OK.

Hope this helps, Chip

Hi, Chris

The Geco drives will trip at 125 encoder count and Rutex at 32,000 as I remember, at 125 count your off your cut line quite a bit, if your doing artwork this may not be a problem but if your machining, to have the drive not trip till 32,000 is way out there.

I use both type's and find both work well.

I read some where that Geco and Rutex use the same Driver Mosfet's, thay just rate them differently.

It's a function of volt's and amp's on your motor's torque and all motors are little different, turn up the Gain and Dampening on the Y axis, till the force to move it is the same as the X.

Inc. the volt's to 80, if you have a heavy duty var-ack boost the X-former input to test.

Swap your X-Y servo motor's may be bad.

Hope this Helps, Chip

Hi, Dave

Jog Mode - key 32842, ------To set Jog to Cont., for as long as key is held down or as Inc. uses the value set in Cycle Window or MPG.

Cycle Jog Step - key 2122,------Toggles the value in Step Window as set 1.0--.0001

What is it your trying to setup.

Hope this was what your looking for, Chip

Hi, Dan

Your art work looks nice.

It's a Gremlin in the view screen code, Art is aware of it, apparently it's some tricky code a real pain to deal with.

My experience is if it loads backwards or reverses after moving the view around, Mouse click on view and move it around several times it will view properly at some point.

Hope this Helps, Chip

Hi, Brian

It can be noise this is true, but a mis-match in gain & dampin will cause it also.

If pin 5 is tyed to 5 volt's after reset thay will also auto-reset wth position loss.

Jerry take the wire off the # 5 terminal check the wire for power, when you turn on the machine, there should be 0 volts at power on, 5 volt's at reset /

drive enable,   and 0 after reset / drive enable released, if this the case the enable is wired properly, power off reatach the wire. if not the drive will be in

reset all the time and can cause problems.

I havent seen you mention any drive faluts  at all in tuning, there is usely some drive fault's when adjusting.

Too early to tell.

Thank's Chip

Hi, Jerry

It sounds like it's getting into oscillation, eather the Gain is to high or Damping is set to low.

Are you replacing a bad Geco or is this a different control your replacing with a Geco control.

Thank's Chip

Hi, Eric Ma

Your servo controls need to be step and direction, 10 pins for this,Mach3 would work fine.

Hope this Helps, Chip
