How to slow down rapid movement for manual operation
« on: April 13, 2013, 04:18:32 PM »
I have a Taig mill and always use gcode. However, I'd like to be able to slow down the rapid movements so I can use it "manually" using keyboard.
Its a pain to write code just to do simple operations and machine moves too fast. Tried going into settings and override but that didn't work.
Anybody done this before and can point me in the right direction? Have done online searches and came up with nothing helpful.

Hit the {TAB} key and use the jog popout to set the jog speed % to what ever you need. Then hit the {tab} key again to close the popout.

Just a thought, (;-0 TP
