Jogging with a Joystick
« on: January 18, 2006, 08:55:28 PM »
Has this feature been disabled in Mach 3?  I can't seem to find any "Joystick enable" button as the instruction manual indicates. ???

Here is a set file that should let you turn on the joystick.
If you need more stuff added I am around.

Hey Brian,

Thanks for the set file!  I installed it and somehow it doesn't seem to be working?  I can see on the settings page where there is now a "joystick Jog" button but, the LED next to it is always on (i.e. clicking on the button doesn't turn it off".]

I'm 99% this is an "operator error" issue so .. how about a little help from the "control tower" please ;)  Thanks!

Sid

Hey Brian,

With the new set I now have the on/off jstick buttons which Does make the LED turn on/off but alas- no response from the program when I move my jstick.

The Jog screen pop-up has a blue area above the X,Y,Z jog buttons that says "Button Jog"  should this change when you engage the jstick mode (or is this just a label).

I', pretty sure my jstick is OK because when I go to Control Panel and check the properties for it, there is a test screen andwhen I move the stick, it moves on the screen.

Do I need a special drive for M3??

Thanks for your continued help/patience!

Sid

I will get back to you after some testing

Bump-  I know this is a trivial thing but it would be nice to have for me (& I hope others too!)

Thanks,

Sid
