Lathe - Maintaining Z axis feedrate
« on: July 28, 2015, 10:10:48 AM »
Does anybody know of a macro to maintain feed rate on the Z axis, no matter what the X axis is doing.
Mach3 maintains the set feed at the tool, so as the X axis speeds up around the arc, the Z axis slows down, reducing the pitch of the thread.
The purpose being to screwcut on an arc segment.

Any suggestions would help with an existing macro (or similar macro to adjust).

Thank you.
