Help me mach3 on T42 IBM
« on: June 05, 2016, 11:11:21 PM »
Hi every all
I used mach3 on 2 laptop (IBM T42 winxp, HP win7). The same config.
- I copy Mach3 from HP win7 to IBM T42 winxp
- Load 1 g-code for 2 laptop.
IBM T42 run offline with mach3: units/min (max) 10mm/min
HP win 7 run offline with mach3: units/min (max) 1800mm/min
Why ?
Help me please ! 10mm/min is very slow.
Thanks !

Hi,
don't know if this will help...
Used to be that when I turned my machine on it would default to a federate of 6mm/min. If as I usually do, do
a few manual moves just to check everything is working before homing it would take a long time at only 6mm/min.
Then I read that on the 'General Config' page that I can put an initialisation string, I added an 'F300' to the string
and now when my machine fires up it has a useful federate for me to jog around and focus my mind on what I want
to accomplish.
