Mach3 MDI line issue
« on: September 26, 2018, 09:07:18 AM »
Hello all,
 I just installed Geckodrive G540. Unfortunately the xml file crashes my computer so I am manually going through all the settings. I have almost everything all set however the MDI line isn't working correctly. If I type in G0X1.5 the table doesn't move to x=1.5 but it does move 1.5". In other words if the x is at 2.000" and I type G0X1.5 the table will move to x=3.5.
Can you please let me know which setting I should be looking for?
Thanks

Hi,
sounds like your in incremental mode.

Confirm that you are in absolute distance mode and IJ Incremental mode.

Next read up on G90 and G91 modes. MDI a G90 to be sure.
