Feed Rate Override
« on: February 28, 2013, 10:50:56 AM »
Hi, This is probably a dumb question but if you use the on screen fro to speed things up, does it speed up the g0 speed?
i have notice that using it to lower the speed does effect the rapid move speed so does it do the same when you speed itup?

You can have the rapid locked to feed override but it will never go above 100% even if your FRO goes over 100%.
The option to lock Rapid to FRO is on general Config page.

My X and Y motors are set at 4000 units per minute. Z is set at 2000

Why does the X and Y travel at only 1000 when doing a safe Z move (moving onto the next position)

When the machine is actually milling material the X and Y are traveling at 1500, but the G0 is always at 1000

Cant I get the Rapid feed rate G0 to move at 1500 or even 4000 ??

Ok.. Done it.  In Mach3. Open the settings tab. Top left hand box called Fast feed overide. It has 0.00 in the box. I changed the numbers to 1000 and left the tab without pressing enter. Now It goes 5x as fast when not cutting material
