Axis movement limited to 1"? Demo Version??
« on: April 09, 2007, 09:41:17 AM »
Hello,
I have downloaded the demo version and I am getting my mill all setup.
If I go the the MDI screen and inout G0 X.75 everything is fine, But if I go over an inch my motors start doing weird things and dont travel much more than an inch. Is this a limitation of the demo version?
Also if I jog the axis with the hot keys everything is fine.
Thanks

Check your Motor settings and set you Max velocity lower. Also set your Jog Vel to 100% by pressing Tab. This will allow you to test your motors at max speed.

Thanks

I will try tweaking these settings again, Just making sure it wasn't locked out by the demo version.
Thanks

I tried tweaking all the settings, I have to set the velocity to 10 ipm to get it to travel the correct distance. When it is moving the axis mach pulses the motors about 1 second on and 1/4 second off, Is that normal?

I have tried just about every setting for the Accel from 1 to 20 donsn't help.
I have also tried tweaking the uS pulse with no help.
I tried changing the kernel speed to all the settings also no change.
When I jog the axis with hotkeys I can run the velocity up to 75 IPM without any problems.

Could this be a PC issue?
The driver test looks good, But I have it on a 1.5 GHZ laptop for now. (I have a desktop ordered)
Thanks

It sounds to me like a PC problem... :( You will have to take out all the power save settings and so on to get it to work, after you do that it will kill the battery in no time :) So I would wait for the desktop computer
