Mach3 can't jog
« on: December 25, 2006, 11:58:04 AM »
Ok, I decided to upgrade to mach3 from mach1 which is on my Shoptask machine.  I can't seem to jog around to begin using it.  I hit reset and the jog on/off button but still no go.  Mach1 works just fine.  What am I missing?
The reason I am upgrading is I purchased a 48"x48" router this summer using Flashcut system.  Works pretty well.  But I upgraded my controller to a Camtronics 4axis system and I thinkg mach3 will do a better job with this.  Since I already use mach1 on my shoptask, I thought I might as well learn mach3 for both machines and get rid of the Flashcut.
Thanks

Ok, was playing with it some more.  I can't figure out how to reverse the motors.  When I jog all motors (x,y,z) all move opposite of what I should have.  Another thing is how do I set the jog rate?   I see the percentage dro in the mpg mode window.  Any way to set up a default speed?

Jog rate is what your motor tuning is, ie the max you have tuned is your jog speed. If you want slower then set the percentage down to whatever you want and it will stay that way.
 To reverse the motors you can do it several ways, one way is to change the "Dir Low active" to the opposite that you have now.
