Is it in Mach or Aspire to pause for the spindle to ramp up.
« on: March 03, 2013, 11:12:08 AM »
I just added a spindle to my MechMate and when I run a file it starts cutting before the spindle is ready.  Is there a place in Mach or do I need to do it in my Aspire post processor to add a delay to give the spindle time to ramp up to the cut speed before it starts cutting?

Thanks

I saw that and I misread it.  Thanks, that is exactly what I was looking for.  Do you have any suggestions for a good time?

Depends on how your spindle is set up. I use 5 seconds with a Super-Pid controlled router.

Gerry,

Thanks.  It sounds like a good number to start with.
