Stopped halfway thru Gcode now no keyboard jog
« on: January 11, 2012, 04:00:59 AM »
HI
I was running my machine and then it just stopped, i was standing a few meters back just watching, i didnt touch anything and it just stopped, when i went to look at the computer it was just stopped on a line of gcode and wouldnt do anything. i have restarted the computer and the software a number of times and and even check the jog on/off switch. i can open mach 3 and start gcode and it runs and the machine moves but will not allow me to jog into place so i can zero out and start?
any ideas?
Thanks
Chris

Have you tried a different keyboard?
Have a look to see if the system Hotkeys are still set for Jogging?
Attach your xml if these dont help and I will have a look.

open Mach and look lower right at the name of the profle you are using, next go to Mach3 folder on your drive and look for a file with that name and a xml extension. Copy that file to your desktop and rename it to CHCChrisA.xml then use the additional options button on the reply page to browse and attach.

Just tried with your xml and the Jog Control button was off, see pic, it should have green round it.
Also the jog hotkeys assigned for the keyboard are not the default arrows, this may be intentional but just mentioning in case its not.

i would have swore i had it on, but i have a feeling i know what i was doing, anyway i have it half back, before i could jog with the keys and the pendant but now i can only assign one or the other? how do you use the cursor keys aswell as assign the pendant? so i can jog with both
THanks

By the pendant are you meaning the screen you get with the tab key?
You can assign the arrow keyboard buttons from the Config menu then system hotkeys.
