Limiting rapid rates in mach 3?
« on: December 30, 2008, 06:15:19 PM »
Hello again all,

I'm wondering if there's a way to force mach 3 to never exceed the settings in the motor tuning menu.

Right now, if I set my feedrate slider above or below 100%, the rapids change speed too, which I don't want.

Reason is, if I'm cutting a design on hard material, I sometimes pull the feed rate down a bit, which also slows the rapids. Of course, it does it the other way too, if I'm working in very soft material, I crank up the feed rate sometimes up to 200%, and the rapids run extremely fast.

Is there a way to do this?

Thanks!
Z

If your rapids are exceeded with a FRO then you must be using an old version as it has been fixed for quite a while.

If it's NOT an old version, perhaps the Feed and Rapids are Locked in config. and should be un-locked.

 Nope the locked RRO/FRO should still obey the motor tuning, certainly did when I was testing for Brian after he sorted it.

Very possible it's an old version, I'll update it asap. Thanks again :)
