Mach 3 looses steps like crazy when on the Program Run page and the axis are jogged.  When I go to the Diagnotic page and move around they are smooth and never miss a beat.  This is on a Taig mini-mill, by the way.   Any ideas?

Are they jogging, or moving at the same rate in run,jog, and diag.?
;D If you could see the things I have in my head, you would be laughing too. ;D

Whatever I set the jog rate to is what they travel.  If I set it for step then they step by the set inc. also.  If I set it for a .2 step the axis may loose 2 or 3 steps in that distance, but if I do the same on the Diagnostic page it steps perfect every time.

I am using Mach3.  I primarily use a 2ghz Inspiron laptop with 1gig ram.  I have 4 other destops in the room and have tried them as well with the same results.  The diagnostic utility does show my signal is pretty dirty, but I don't understand why it would clean up and work great just by switching the page within Mach3?   :-\

well there was an error in the LED class that could be giving you this trouble. Try the newest version and that could help.

Thanks
