Hi, Dan

I had the same problem, unless things have been changed you need to set your F speed to  a value greater than 100.

The A axis is now controlling your F Speed, On my rotary table the Vel is 2500 acl is 500, I set it to F 1500.

Then you should see the speed up, and adjust it as needed for proper cut speed.

It has to do with the steps being set to Deg  and software not taking it into account.

I've posted  or sent an Email to Art and  Brian on this before.

Hope this Helps, Chip

Art has been working on this problem and had done something in the last iteration... I will have to get into it and have a look... please if you can post a two or three line program that is not working well on your machine and I will have a look at it.
Thanks

Hi, Brian

Looks like Ver. .025 fixes it, earlier ver. were very slow.

Feed-Hold, Re-start, doesn't lose Position now ether in Inc. Mode.

Feed-Hold with jog, Re-start, Goes Bez-erk, into orbit, Spindle orientation is sideways also !!

A axis doesn't rotate with X, Y, moves, (In View Screen Display) Though Actual  cutting is fine.


Hears a file Tooth3.txt "gear cutting" its a little more than 3 lines but it shows problem.

Settings: x,y,z 40000 steps, 10 vel, acel. 1, A axis 400.2 steps per deg., vel. 2500, acel. 500, A Dir set to .5


Looking Better All The Time.

Thanks, Chip
