Move to a specific location
« on: October 18, 2011, 06:58:40 AM »
Is there a way I can enter in an x, y coordinate and move to there without having to do it in G-Code?

Jogging will get me close but not exact.

Thanks

Use the MDI line and type in G0X10Y10 then press the Enter on your keyboard and the axis will move to that position.

No problem :)
MDI is very handy especially if wanting to do really simple jobs that dont really warrant writing the code to a file :)
