Feed rate
« on: August 20, 2013, 07:43:51 PM »
I am new to cnc and to Mach3.

I have a gcode for an image and the author told me to start the feed rate slow (6.00) and increase as needed.

My machine is set at 6.0 but when I start to run it goes to 150.00

How do I hold it at 6.0

Thanks for any help,

The feedrate is normally call in the Gcode program. It overrides any setting made in mach3 prior to the program run. IF you cnnot change the Gcode then do a Feedrate Override lowering the feedrate to 6IPM .

I realized that right after I posted. I changed the feed rate in notepad and it seems to be doing ok so far.

Thanks for the other info, I will need it most likely someday
