Mach4 G code problem (G01 is being ignored).
« on: August 30, 2016, 02:14:08 PM »
Dear all,
I'm trying to test my setup by running a simple G code:

G00 X0.0 Y0.0
G00 X10.0 Y10.0
G01 X1.0 Y1.0 F60

What happens is the router goes to X0.0 Y0.0, then to X10.0 Y10.0, but it skips the G01 code (as if it completed it) and then stops and rewinds the cycle. I've loaded several test files of G code but got the same result. Also, I've noticed that while I'm manually jogging, using Mach4 buttons, on the screen there are FRO (G01) and RRO (G00) indicators, well, in my case only the FRO is being changed (even while executing the G00 code). I've scoured the internet and didn't find an answer.
Thanks in advance!

I don't know about skipping the "G01" line.  As fort he FRO updating, if you are using the "wx4" screen set the white box above the FRO slider displays the current feed rate, not the FRO setting.  Mach4 uses velocity data from the motion plug-in to calculate the actual feed rate.

It works fine here but it can be what is in your safe start up line in config that can change things. It might be better like this :-

G00 X0 Y0
X10. Y10.
G01 X1. Y1. F60.
