Specify machine coordinates
« on: April 13, 2016, 03:11:47 AM »
Hello first post from a newbie here. I found a post on here from ages ago about trying to specify a coordinate for the machine to go to. One post said press return not enter but theyre the same thing, another said make sure youre in machine coordinates which I've tied turning on and off. I've tried this in MIDI sceen and Program run screen but as soon as I press enter the DRO just returns to the previous readout?

Please help.

Sounds like you are typing into the DRO box?

That will not create a move.

You need to be in the MDI line, try typing something simple like G0 X10 which should move your X axis to the point that reads 10mm on the work co-odinates, if you zero the work position first then type this it will simply move X 10mm positive.
