Hi,
 "G0" is the maximum rapid speed possible, set as the maximum velocity in Motor Tuning.
 "G1" followed by an "F**" entry commands a move at a specified feedrate.
"G1 X20  F2000" would move the axis at 2000 units per minute.
"G0 X0" would then move it at the maximum available speed. (10,000)

I hope this helps.

Sorry Navyboy,
   I totally missed your last post. Where are you at with your situation now ?

Thank You so much for your help Russ.  I have found the problem, my voltage settings on the control board (TDX, TDY, and TDZ) were at 0.  I turned the pods up to 1.6 volts motors are working great.  Again thank you for your help, with out it I would have not found my problem.

I do have another question.  I still haven't purchased my licence for MACH3.  I have been playing with the demo,  when I go to LCAM and try to draw and post to MACH3 it only shows a very small piece, is this because its not full function?

Lazycam is an importer of a dxf file. It is not and should not be used as a drawing program.

First thanks Rich.  When I watched the training videos at Artsoft Web site, they show adding text, then pocketing.  I can tried the letter "S" and was able to chain and pocket inside the "S".  But, when I posted to mach3 I couldn't find the *.tap file, except as a *.lcam file.
I guess I'll play with the program somemore, but to answer my question do I have to have a licenced version of MACH3 to up Lcam?  Am I asking the right question?

Hi Jim,
There are actually 2 licenses, Mach3 and LazyCam.
Mach3 has limitations when in demo mode. 500 line limit, no threading in Turn as well as some others.

LazyCam is limited to NO pocketing or Offsetting and has a line limit of 50 if not licensed. (if I remember correctly).

If what you are generating is much smaller than you are expecting, it could be a MM/inch units issue.

Usually, G0 rapids and G1 feedrate moves are all included in the GCode file, weather hand written or created with a CAM program.

You can also use MDI to move the axis' accordingly.

G1, G0 and the F are Modal, meaning they stay in effect as last commanded until changed.

Hope this helps,
Russ

- Purchase CNC Programming Handbook by Smid - study it
- Read / study the Mach Mill manuals
 
There is no shortcut to any of this and one just needs to go through the learning curve which continues forever.
