Mach4 Lathe 3481 Demo, Inc. Jog, Dia mode
« on: January 30, 2018, 10:36:12 AM »
Lathe, Diameter Mode
Inc. Jog Step = 0.0010
The X MACHINE DRO increments 0.0010
The X PART DRO increments .0020

Shouldn't the Machine dro increment by 0.0005 ?
and the Part dro by 0.0010 ?

If it should be changed, where/how (roughly) would one go about it.
Thanks,
Russ

When in diameter mode I think that if you jog .001 then the DRO should indicate .001 and the tool should move .0005 IMHO.
We never have the time or money to do it right the first time, but we somehow manage to do it twice and then spend the money to get it right.

Precisely  ;) THANKS !
Just need to figure/learn how to fix it.
It needs to divide the increment by 2 for the MACHINE DRO instead of multiplying it by 2 for the PART DRO.

Thanks again,
Russ

I don't think you can change that behavior. Probably best to open a ticket with NFS on this one.

Hi,
I also noticed this inconvenience. in diameter mode the displacements with Jog take twice the value.
