I have my Huanyang VFD Spindle working as I would like it, I even have the cooling water pump starting with a relay. But here is the problem, the G-code file starts running before the spindle is up to RPMs I tried adding "G04 P5000"  to the file for a 5 second pause, but the pause is not long enough for the motor to spool up to speed.
So what am I missing?
P.S. Is there a way the get the motor to spool up quicker?

I just found an answer...............  "G04 P5000" should be "G04 P200000" for a 10 second pause.  :)

No need for any of that. You just need to adjust the settings in Mach under Ports & Pins -> Spindle Setup to set how long Mach pauses to wait for the spindle to spin up and spin down.


Thank for this post. It is just what I needed. ;D ;D ;D

Thanks Theminor for the reply I'll check it out and see if I can get it working. I'm getting closer to using the water cooled spindle.

You right AGAIN
My step increments was set at 6.0000. Changed to .001 But ................... the .0001 changes.  But now I know where I need to look. The problem now is it will not change a whole number like .001 but .0009 or

Thanks

General Mach Discussion / Moving 'Z' .001 at a time
« on: April 25, 2012, 10:46:16 AM »
I saw in a YouTube that if you press "Ctrl" and move X Y or Z. It will move .001 at a time. I have tried this and it works on this PC. But the PC that my CNC is hooked to will not do the .001 move. If I press "Ctrl" on the CNC-PC the DRO starts moving an will not stop until I press reset.  I tried to reinstall Mach3 with no change. Both PCs are running Mach3 version R3.043.056 W/ Mach2010 screenset. It's not mandatory that I be able to use the .001 move, but I can see where it would come in handy at times. Am I missing a setting somewhere on the CNC-PC?

 I really like the "2010 Screenset" and the tool change works like a dream. Just one request, maybe this has been ask before ........ Is there a way to make the 'Line #' window show more digits. Sometimes I need at least 6 digits showing when making large reliefs.
