how do I change spindle ranges in operation
« on: June 01, 2015, 12:21:02 PM »
I'm sure there is a simple answer for this but I can't seem to find it. how do I change from one spindle range to the other? I have 2 set up for high and low and have the vfd calibrated to them. but in mach I seem to be stuck in low range (in more ways than one this build has taken over a year but that's beside the point).

 Anyone know if there is button to switch ranges? or has anyone written a script for one? I hope its not too obvious I'll feel like an idiot.

I used a DRO to type a spindle range in. with the DRO code set to "spindle range" I have 8 different ranges then the spindle ranges have to be set on the spindle tab in setup..... eventually I will write a macro and be able to use an m-code in the program too. shouldn't be to hard to use a button either but it might require some scripting.
