Hello,

I'm a newbie on the Mach3, and I have a basic problem.
How to switch incremental or absolute distance mode in Mach3?

Thanks reply.

The Gcodes;  G90 switches to Absolute and G91 to Incremental moves.

Thanks, Tweakie.

The only way is G-code?
Is there any hotkey or setting in Mach3 which I can switch them?

Thank you.

Within Mach3;  Config. / General Config. set "Distance Mode" Absolute / Incremental.

I think you would have to add a screen button (or two) with CB code to toggle between the two states using a defined hotkey / keys.
