General Mach Discussion / Re: Very Slow Feed Rate

Would do if I could TPS, but in the mean time my X axis stepper or controller has blown up. Motor very hot with circuitry plastic burn smell coming from either the controller or the motor itself. Back to the drawing board.  Wish you all the best and I'll be back once this has been resolved.

By the way TPS, what is the Feed Rate diagnostic code and timing for the Z axis?

It worked, almost to the milli second. Thanks again TPS. Does that mean that my CNC is a very slow machine, as I have seen another that seems to fly through the job.
Hi dannyb, the MDI tab is next to the Program Run tab and allows for manual code entry. Your issue looks like a calibration issue though, could that be the case.

Thanks TPS, will try MDI (manual data input) and see what happens. Will report back.

General Mach Discussion / Very Slow Feed Rate

Hello People, I have calibrated and tuned my CNC steppers and the CNC now jogs beautifully. Once the sample G Code (roadrunner) is loaded and the Cycle Start button is activated however, the Feed Rate is extremely slow, often only a step and very small distance at the time. Over-Riding the Feed Rate by 250% makes hardly any difference. My CNC is a 12 year old MiniMax (MaxPath42) with recon control circuitry. It has another issue but I'll discuss that separately. Has anyone found a solution to this problem?

Hello people, does the post I'm replying to really date back to 2007?, it's now 2020! I'm new in the CNC and ArtSoft blog game, have already clocked up quite a few problems to be resolved but do not know how to log a post on the subject so that it opens it up to everyone of you out there. Can someone give this newby a leg up please? Hope you're all well
