axis moves before spindle ramped up
« on: March 29, 2015, 10:11:19 AM »
Hello Chaps

My programming is a fits and starts operation - sometimes weeks go past before i get back to the machine

present problem is the the axix move starts before the spindle motor has ramped up.

(I am trying to figure out a slow acceleration problem between mach3 and an omrom controller
 cant get the thing to accelerate fast)

But in the meantime i need to make something so i would like to only start the g0 command
when the spindle gets up to speed.

all help gratefully accepted
regards
fred evans

There's a spindle delay in Ports and Pins, on the Spindle tab. Set the delay you need, and Mach3 will wait that long before moving after the spindle starts.
