Move X first then Z
« on: July 02, 2012, 05:02:34 PM »
Is it possible in Mach on a command such as G01 or G00 to move to the desired X coord and then to the desired Z instead of moving both at the same time? Is there a setting that can be enabled/disabled or is it impossible?

G01 X 1.0 F1 - WOULD MOVE X 1 UNIT POSITIVE AT A FEEDRATE OF 1
G00 X1.0 - WOULD MOVE X 1 UNIT POSITIVE AT MAX RAPID RATE
G91 - IS USED TO SET  INCREMENTAL DISTANCE MODE
G90 - IS USED TO SET  ABSOLUTE DISTANCE MODE

Have a look at the Mach3 manual as there is a description of all the gCodes.
A highly recomended book would be CNC Programming Handbook by Smid.
