Why should persistent jogging be so mysterious?
« on: May 14, 2015, 04:33:29 PM »
I can't jog the machine after stopping it in the middle of a run. I was able to do it; now I can't anymore.
The code has not changed, but the config has. I went from v68 to v66 because it was suggested that the 66 is a better version.
I had this issue before I changed versions of Mach 3. The keyboard does not do it, nor does the virtual pendant. I am stuck.

Does anyone have a clue?

You have a modified screen, can you post it as well ?

I am using a slightly modified screen. Can this be the cause? See attached screen file.

As delivered, you are in jog STEP mode which = .001" per arrow press.
Switched to Cont. and it looks to be normal.

I am afraid that this is not the case.  When Mach 3 stops at a M1 coomand, the keyboard is dead. I cannot move the gantry out of the way to flip the material. 
I was always able to move the gantry no matter where I stopped Mach 3. Then with a "run from here" , I would continue to run a program.
I am no longer being able to do this, so I am stuck.

Perhaps if someonce could provide me some instructions on how to get the "tool change" position option to make the gantry move out of the way, this might be a work around for now.

Hi Tony,
  66 is reported to be a very buggy version, some say do not use it.  :P
I'd try an earlier release.

I thought that 66 rather than 68 was the better version. Can you please advise on the "best" for a mill. And where's the archive for other versions? thanks
