Buttons that execute g-codes
« on: August 17, 2010, 05:10:35 PM »
Hi,

I am desigining a screen with several buttons that will execute G0 codes for rapid linear motion. However, I cannot get my CNC motors to move rapidly, amd it behaves the same as G1 and it is determined by the feed rate.

When I enter G0 manually in the MDI, or run a text file containing G0, it works in both cases.

Any help on this issue would be very much appreciated.

I am using MachScreen V 1.43.3

You didn't say how you've configured the buttons??

Hi Gerry,

The button simply executes a G-code, G0Z.5G1X.5. I want the Z to travel with rapid position (G0) and the X to travel with linear motion at feed rate (G1).

I'm sorry if i'm not being clearer, I'm new to this!

Thanks again.

You can't have G0 and G1 on the same line. Move the Z first, then the X.

G0 Z0.5
G1 X1.5
