Hesitation in jog, G0 upgrade problem
« on: January 13, 2010, 11:53:33 PM »
I just upgraded my router from Mach3 1.84 to 2.66 now when I jog both the x or the y there is a hesitation. The Router will move about 6 inches, slow way down to almost zero, then accelerate to the correct velocity for the rest of the move. This also happens in G0 moves. Did not do this before the upgrade??????????

Sounds like backlash compensation.  There is an additional setting somewhere in Mach to speed up the process.

You need to check "Shuttle acceleration" value, if too big it will make backlash act as you noticed. I have servo motors and can use value like 0.01 but stepper maybe need more, depends your machine....

Thanks. The problem was in the backlash and shuttle speed. Not sure I have it optimized but do have it working.
