Problems with movement with Large program loaded
« on: December 16, 2006, 01:01:24 PM »
Hi,
I loaded a large cutterpath into Mach2 and when I move the machine it keeps moving after I release the button. It moved fine before and then after I closed the program it would move just fine, but while the program loaded into Mach it had problems.  For example, before the I load the program when I would tap the Page up button it would move about .03, but when the program was loaded, I would tap the Page up button and it would move up 1.43 with just one tap of the button! :o

Any Ideas whats going on? I can get you the cutterpath if you want but its 78Mb.
Thanks,
Greg

You can turn off the toolpath for the very large files...

Hi,
I have 768Mb of RAM, Is there a setting that will devote more of my computers resources to the type of applications that Mach uses? 

How do I turn off the toolpath, will that make a differences?

Thanks,
Greg

Hi,
Thanks for the Help, I guess I should have looked harder if it was anymore out in the open it would have fell in my lap.
Brian, check out my other post on "Help this chaos has to stop". Let me know what you have to think.
