Are you using the standard screen? Go into Screen4 and edit the DRO to feedrate then it will show what you want. The Feedrate DRO that is on screen however will already show that and I dont have a clue why there is the extra DRO there to show FPR as obviously its not looking at the correct info. The IPR will always be what you have in your code however the actual feed per minute will depend on the True spindle speed when you actually start your G95 move. For exaple if your code calls for 2000rpm and feed of 0.1IPR and the True spindle speed was reported as 2000 the FPM would be 200, however if your true spindle speed was actually only 1000rpm then the Feed DRO would still show 0.1 but the FPM would be showing only 100.

 Oh and also if you are putting feedrates of 4 digits after the decimal point then you will need to edit the format  string to suit, ie %1.4f

Hello Hood

You will have to explain more in detail how i can change my screen 4 as i am not to computer literate ,but can follow instructions step by step.

My rpm is really what is shown on the dro if i imput 6000 rpm it goes 6000 rpm  if i imput 300 it goes at 300.

Thank you for your time

Marcel

Not sure if Brett has sorted you out or not, thats the problem with doing the PM thing ;)
 If he hasnt then all you do is go to your Mach3 folder and double click on Screen4.exe. When that opens open the screenset you are using from the File menu then Open. If its the standard mill one it will be 1024.set, once thats open just double click on the DRO for Feed per Rev and change it from the dropdown box to Feedrate, then in the Format string change to a 4 after the decimal point, then thats you done, just save and exit You might want to however save the set as a custom one, if so then instead of save use Save As option and name it what you want.  When you next open Mach go to View menu the Screens and browse and load the screenset.
 As said previously it will only really display the feedrate set in the code, it wont distinguish between a G94 or G95 move.

There is no Index pulse set up in that XML so no way for Mach to know what the spindle is doing and thus no way it can do a G95 move.
