G4 comand? time delay how to use?
« on: June 04, 2007, 01:04:30 PM »
 

Thanks to anybody reading this post
The G4 comand is used to put in a time delay is your system but how do you designate or tell your program how long to pause for?

I aslo tryed calling it G04, Mach 3 didnt seem to care.

Thanks
Josh

zealous depends on your settings thats either 1000 milliseconds or 1000 seconds
config>general confiig  then all the way over on the right side of the page(G04 Dwell in milliseconds)

Wes,
Cool thanks,
Just wondering what would be the usages to dwell in milliseconds?
What kind of operations use such fine tuning? Just wondering?

milliseconds imo is more of a mill operation, something like doing a plunge with a mill or drill bit to give it time to do a 360deg rotation prior to rapid out.
cleans the bottom of a blind hole.  If you are doing a 1000 of something .05 seconds less time starts to add up.  Time is money or something like that.
I don't program that tight but i'm sure somebody does.

Wes,
Thanks for the explanation,
"cleans the bottom of a blind hole" I can see how that can be very important.
