Can I run two axis with one hot key
« on: July 21, 2007, 11:55:11 AM »
I want to move both X and Z axis at the same time when pressing on a keyboard left arrow.
I still need to be able to control each axis independly (another set of two hot keys)- so slaving is out of the question
Is this possible ?

You can turn Slaving on wilth
OEM Button 357 will disable the slaving

and OEM button 358 will enable the Slaving :)

Hope that helps

If you setup the slaving they should do it :)

Thanks

This is a capture of a section of the Wiki that pertains to OEM buttons

Looks like you can do it no problem.

Just need to change the name of Z to A

Will that muck up your gcode?  I guess it would.
