G81 canned drill routine too slow to position
« on: March 14, 2009, 12:15:38 PM »
I am trying to figure out how to change the feedrate to rapid position between holes in a 28 hole g81 routine.  My code looks like this:

G81 x0 y0 z-0.9 ro.1 f5
x1.25
y0.75
x0
y1.5
and so on......

The feedrate f5 is great for drilling but way too slow when positioning.

G0 and G1 are modal. That is what it will do until told to do something else. G0 is Rapid and G1 is a feed.

G0 X0 Y0 
G1 F5 Z-0.9
G0 Z 1.25
X 1.25 Y 1.25
X -1.25
Y -1.25
G1 F5 X 1.25 Y 1.25
X -1.25
Y -1.25

If you have space, run this program and see the actions produced by each line. Then you can run it in single block to help even more. Run it slow and watch it good to make sure your not going to crash and be ceratin all is well.

Thanks for making me look.  It DOES rapid between holes.  Nevermind but thanks.
