Author Topic: Are the G Codes at the top right of the main screen all the active codes?  (Read 928 times)

I assume the codes at the top right of the main screen are the ones that are active. Correct?

Why would g97 and g94 be active for a mill program? I assume g97 and g94 are for turning applications.

Thanks,

Billy

G94 would be the standard mode for Mill. Alternatively, you could use G93.

I don't know what G97 is, as it's not listed in either the Mach3 Mill or Lathe manuals.

Just in case anyone is curious about the G97…

Constant Surface Speed never really worked correctly in Mach3 and it’s implementation was eventually discontinued. Having the G97 active ensures the spindle will be operating in RPM mode.
