Howto use Roadrunner example in metric units?
« on: July 03, 2011, 04:19:31 AM »
Hi all,

on my recently build mill, the roadrunner example seems to be smaller than 1 by 1 mm. You can hear the movement, but not see it. Is there anything I can do to use this file as my first test?

Thanks
Hoagie

Edit the code and put a G20 at the start of it, that will tell Mach its in imperial units and will be run as such. The other way is to use the scaling at the side of the axis DROs, you can then scale it by the amount you wish.

Hi Hood,

G20 fixed it and Roadrunner has been milled successfully.
Thank you very much!
