Slow jog mode, when in step ONLY..
« on: February 11, 2009, 04:51:34 PM »
I noticed that as soon as Mach is started if you jog using step mode it will only move at a maximum of 6mm per minute, but if I run and finish a program then the step mode runs at the normal maximum.
I've noticed this on 2 different cnc machines and also on my test computer.
BTW I'm running 3.041, I did upgrade to the newest version, but I had to roll back because it wouldn't allow a negative value to be entered.
Is this slow jog a common fault?

You can do a few things here, firstly you can type the required feedrate into the feedrate DRO.
You can set a feedrate by typeing F100 (or whatever your required feedrate is) into the MDI line.
You can go to General Config page and enter F100 into the initialisation string box and each time you start Mach it will get set to that.

Thanks Hood, the initialisation string worked a treat.
