Not moving correct distance and speed.
« on: September 30, 2011, 05:22:24 PM »
I have just finished my new milling machine and im having a small problem.

I have drawn a box in vectric Cut2D 50mm x 50mm for testing purposes and generated the toolpath and saved as Mach2/3 Arcs(mm)(*.txt). Loaded this file into Mach and im not getting the results i should be. It is cutting a box but only around 3mm x 3mm and running the path very slowly, so slow you can just about see each step of the motor.

When i jog the xy and z about via mach 3, the axis;'s move around quite fast but once i tell it to run program it is going slow and not the correct size.

I have used the "Steps Per Second" config button on all 3 axis and its not making any diffrence.

Any ideas?

Sorted this now.

I had native units set to Inch and then was entering the movement values in the screw setup in mm.
