I can only see 2 decimal places on feedrate window
« on: January 21, 2013, 11:42:24 PM »
when running in inch/rev the feedrate window only shows 2 decimal places so if I run at .005"/rev you can't see the 5 what gives..

Hi Ray,

You will need to use one of the Screen Designers - opening the .set file (typically 1024.set) the format of the Feedrate DRO's are shown as %4.2f - the 2f is the number of decimals shown - change this figure to 3f if that is the number of decimals you require.

Inputed or called for feedrate is implemented even though it is not shown in the window as such.

I know I have .005" /rev but would like to see it, I know the 5 is hiding behind the window, should I try another screen set?

Why not just do what Tweakie mentioned in his post?

That's easy for you to say, don't know how to do that. I just try to evaluate this stuff, why wouldn't have that been done as standard on the standard lathe screen, doesn't anyone want to see the feedrate?

Please take a screen shot of what you see, and I may be able to help out with this.
