Make Cuts without writing g-code
« on: August 02, 2006, 10:55:05 PM »
Hi All:
On occassion all I need to do is cut a straight line on the X or Y axis (to true up a face or for alignment purposes).
Is there a way that I can use Mach3 with out writing a g-code?
Thanks.
Rusty

You could bump your jog feedrate down to a reasonable speed for the material you need to cut, and hold the jog button down to do it. Another way, but you have to write a SMALL amount of G code, is do it though the MDI text box, e.g., G01 X6 Y0 F3
