Thanks Sid,
    I checked that out. It looks pretty neat. I just wish I could get the game pad right. I think it is a bug with Mach or Keygrabber. It does exactly what I want it to do to the second axis I command but not the first. That is if you are moving more than one axis simultaneously.

Hi

I think I might of sorted it, I updated the video card drivers for the lastest ones this morning and it seams a lot better, but it's still not good enough for me to be confident using one of the buttons as a stop or feedhold button. You can sometimes flick the button on and off quick enough that the keygrabber doesn't respond.

I tried setting up one of my axes as a axisgain to see if I could help Brett out with his problem but I too had no joy getting it to work I could even get it to work on a second axis as Brett does as my will only let me move one axis at a time.

Thanks

Chris

Hi Chris,
   I know I've asked before, but are you sure your intial delay in misc. settings (in keygrabber) is set to 300? I wish I had a gamepad that would plug in to my gamecard, all of mine are usb. How big is the delay? 1sec., 5sec., 1/2 sec. ?

I got it!!!!!!! :D!!!!!! :D!!!!!!!! ;D It was so d%$# simple. In Keygrabber, joysticks, you set up the axis you want to be your axis gain as selectable axis!!!!! I Changed some other stuff too. I'll post more later.

I am interested in your setup, I have used a gamepad with some success but not as well are you seem to be doing. 

Can you post your *.grab file, it is were keygrabber saves your settings.

Thanks Arnie

Here is a copy of my grabber file and my screen set. I changed some of my hotkeys. I will be posting in more detail later. If you can't find your way around screen designer, please wait until I get everything posted. :-[
I also changed the way I was using the last axis. I know this is confusing but I will clear it up in detail later. ::)




        I find the keygrabber to be really nice and easy to set up. It's killer. I can do the following from a $16.00 gamepad I bought at Walmart.
1,2,3. Jog my X,Y,&Z in analog. Slow to fast.All three at the same time.
4,5,6. Zero my X,Y,&Z axis DROS with an interlock.
7,8,9. Feed rate +,-,& instant return to 100%
10. Step mode. This works good.
11. Go to Zero with an interlock. Sends all three axis home.
12. Program rewind.
13. Cycle start.
14. Feed hold.
15. Cycle stop.
16. Flood coolant toggle. On,off.
17. Single block.
18. Block delete.
19. Optional stop.
20. Toggle through step mode rates.


More info. to come later.

I have a little more info. The right joystick, left to right is the one we use for axis gain and other things. 1st, In screen design, set your Jog mode button to Hot key Ctrl J.
 
1. In neutral = 1st axis rapids, second and third moves at slow jog rate. Pull up this page by hitting tab key in Mach. Double click this number and change to 1.0 % and hit enter or, raise and lower by the [ and ] keys.
2. Hold to right = All 3 axis in rapid
3. Hold button 6 ( interlock ) and hold right (in that order) = Step mode
4. Hold button 6 ( interlock ) and bump left (in that order) = Changes cycle jog step from 1.0000 - 0.0001 by one decimal place per bump.
