rapid move question
« on: January 11, 2016, 10:50:01 AM »
I've spent several days configuring M4 and I think I'm pretty close to getting this set but I have one issue I can't figure out. My first few lines of my G Code are as follows

T1M6
G17
G0Z12.700
G0X0.000Y0.000S5000M3
G0X29.281Y-18.058Z5.080
G1Z-1.058F600.0
G1X28.729Y-17.646

The line G0X29.281Y-18.058Z5.080 seems to behave not as I would expect. First instead of going straight to the xyz coordinates it pulses, and second it seems to be way off on it's distance almost like the steps are different for this line. Everything else seems to move the correct distance it's just that it is shifted because of that line.

Any ideas what setting would change the rapid move G0? I could always remove the G0 from it and just have it move to that coordinate but I'd rather configure it correctly.

Thanks,
Greg

Does it run any different if you do it like this?

T1M6
G17
G0Z12.700
G0X0.000Y0.000
S5000M3
G0X29.281Y-18.058Z5.080
G1Z-1.058F600.0
G1X28.729Y-17.646

You could be missing steps or being that move is all 3 axis' you may be over taxing the power supply.

Yes I believe it was over taxing the system. I tried splitting in to three commands
G0x29.281
G0Y-18.058
G0Z5.080

and it work perfectly. Strange it only seems that command gets over taxed.

Thanks for the help!
