Y axis won't move in Job Step but work fine in Continous Mode?
« on: September 19, 2013, 03:24:33 AM »
My X and Z axises work fine in both Jog Step or Continous mode even at small increments. My Y axis is setup teh excat same way (i think). But the problem is that as soon as i switch the Jog Mode to Step Mode the Y axis won't move at all. X and Y moves fine. As soon as i switch back to Continous Mode again. All axises move fine again?

Makes no sense to me?

Open Mach and look lower right at the name of the profile.
Close Mach then go to the Mach3 folder on you r hard drive and look for a file of that name with a .xml file extension.
Copy it to your desktop and rename to something unique, something like andros.xml
Use the additional options button on the reply page to browse to your desktop and choose the renamed file.

Hi Andros, it seems to be working fine here in simulation so I am unsure why it is a problem for you.
Can you tell me, does the Y axis DRO show that it is moving? It does here.
I do notice there are no HotKeys set up for your axes, I am not sure if that will make any difference as it seems fine here but it may be worth trying to set them up anyway. To do that go to Config menu then System Hotkeys. Click on X++ and a box will pop up asking for you to press a key, click you right arrow. Next X-- and press Left arrow, move to Y++ etc and do them all.

Did you try step jog from the popout screen instead of the keyboard . Or how about from the NUM keypads, Turn off numlock.

Just a thought, (;-)Tp
