Reduced block on the diagnostic page under jog info
« on: February 20, 2015, 11:21:33 PM »
  My manual doesn't have a screenshot of the Mach3 diagnostics  page. The one it shows is the Mach2 one. In particular, I an interested in the "reduced" block. It is off in my "mill" program, but is on in my Plasma program. I wasn't able to find info on what it does. My problem is that I cant jog in plasma, and wondered if that may be the cause of my problem.

That has nothing to do with jogging. Where is it you want to jog from page??

If teh page does not have a JOG button on it you cannot jog from that page. To see what the jog button looks like go to the main page and look in the tool number section at the bottom of the box you will see it.

Every page you can jog from has that button somewhere. sometimes it is TINY.

Thanks for the reply.  I'm curious, what is that for (reduced block)?

It means that enhanced pulsing is not turned on.

My Plasma program is still not working. After several weeks of searching posts, and comparing settings, for an answer,  >:(  I downloaded the .XML reader app. still no luck. I don't really know what settings to compare. (compare Mill . XML that works fine against Plasma  .XML)
 I have attached both files, and would really  appreciate a little help.

One notice: Step Low active is checked for X,Y and Z in MILL but not in Plasma. Maybe your drives are sensitive to that.
Also in Mill, you have A Step and Dir both set for pin 8.

Instant fix !!!!  Thank you again. The pins set alike in mill were on the 4th axis which I do not use at this time, so I didn' notice anything wrong.
