3 MPGs
« on: October 17, 2015, 03:55:26 AM »
Hi All

Real newbie question here so please don't laugh too loud.

Is it possible to set up Mach3 with 3 separate MPGs on a small mill one on each axis so I could use it just like a manual mill and is it possible to use x10 x100 multiplier switches on them for fast traverses

I can envisage simple jobs occurring where it is not worth writing GCode or going into the CADCAM to do it.

Regards Mark

Yes you can have up to 3 MPG's.
You may want to consider just adjusting the counts / unit and velocity so that when you use them the faster or slower they are
turned the faster or slower the axes move.
