Mdi question
« on: March 07, 2014, 02:03:05 PM »
Hi all,   quick question.   When I input say,  X2 F10 I was expecting to move 2 in X at a feed of 10.  I get the email expected 2 in X but feed rate does not change.   What am I doing wrong?

You may be still in the modal G0.
Enter G1 X2 F10 and see what you get.
G1 is modal also.
Just a guess,
Russ

Thanks.  I bet that is it because I swear it worked for me in the past.   Is there a proper entry method to be sure it always works?  If both are modal, do I just toggle it each time?

Unless I'm absolutely sure which is active, I will include it every time when MDIing.

Due to my inexperience  ::), my cnc is full of surprises  :o ... so I try to keep them to a minimum. :)

A rapid, when unexpected can raise the heart rate considerably.  ;D

I do it as Russ does too, if hand coding line by line it is always a G0 or G1.
