Making mach3 pause b4 it cuts.
« on: January 12, 2007, 02:59:37 PM »
My spindle takes about 20 seconds to get up to higher rpm's and mach always want to send it into action b4 its there.  im always needing to pause feed it.  and then starting it back up when the rpm is up.  Any suggestions would be great.

I am using mastercam verison 9.1 as a cam program.  im also tring to figure out why mastercam wont output the right rpm to my router.  I type in 24000rpm in mastercam and the gcord it outputs always says 2000.  I always half to go in and change it.

The mastercam post may have a maximum spindle speed set.

Ya that was the problem.  My mach3 post in mastercam had a max spindle speed of 2000.  Now i just gotta find a way to make it auto add my G4 command.  I dont like editing my gcodes after i make them.  I perfer to let the software do all the coding.  I mean its simple to add a g4 command but i just dont like messing around with the codes.

If this is a constant problem you could set delays in mach setup.
