Author Topic: Help needed. Mach3 Interpolation / Inverse Feed Rate on Rotary Axis Issue  (Read 6376 times)

I'm having an issue with interpolation / feed around the A axis. What it appears to be is an issue with acceleration of the axis. I'm running in inverse time feed rate at a surface speed of 40ipm, When the axis starts, you can see it accelerate normally. During the run the axis changes speed as it should to cut around the part during the rotation (correct). But after a bit, the axis looks as if it suddenly jumps from 0 to 40 ipm without the normal acceleration / deceleration causing the stepper to stick in place (but you can hear the drive scream but no motion).  I thought first it was binding, but after days of messing around, I'm almost positive it's an acceleration calculation problem. Is this a known problem, or am I missing something in configuration?

I believe the issue is at line 442 where the inverse feed rate is at ~14000 for a tiny amount of rotation change from the previous position. I'm not sure if Mach3 is getting confused with such radical numbers as I have no way to confirm for sure.  I did set the max inverse rate to 9000 and will try again.

Thanks for anyone helping.

Personally I do not think that the IFR is dependable with the 4th axis involved. I would try programming without it as a reference.
