Joystick and keyboard @ same time?
« on: October 13, 2009, 06:00:34 PM »
I just installed a logitech gaming controller. I used Art's plugin.
First I can move x & Y on the mill or X & z on the lathe. But not x, y & z. Can I have all?
Also my keyboard doesnt jog the machines while the plugin is active?
I want to die in my sleep like my grandfather, not like the passengers in the car! :-)

on mill you can use Z but it not recommended you can hit material with tool and damage your spindle (done that not my my kids) P.S. do not unplug joystick when mach is running and machine drivers turned on it have a habit to run away in  minus direction of axes (that woes a panic with no limit switch or nothing)  :)
