Jog Z axis when in program... (?)
« on: September 08, 2010, 11:57:52 AM »
Possible while the machine is running a program, to move the Z axis with a button?
I use the mach for cutting with waterjet.
Sometimes i need to move Z axis up or down manualy, while running.
Any ideas?
Thank you.

You can set-up THC UP and THC DOWN in Ports n' Pins and assign the inputs to buttons or hotkeys. Works well here in sim.

Thank you for the quick reply.
This will activate just an output.
My Z axis is pulse controlled by mach.

OK
I found (after long time) a topic that suits my question.
