MDI Screen
« on: December 15, 2018, 10:13:45 AM »
Hi. I am trying to square up my machines x axis with y axis.
I am on the MDI screen and I  input x500 for example and press enter.
The x axis starts to move but extremely slow. You can hear each step from the motor.
It was working fine last night in this mode unless I have clicked on something to slow it right down.??
Hope someone can help identify and resolve this issue.

Got it.. It's working now. Thanks.
Now  it goes to the actual coordinates whereas before hand if the spindle was at x50 for example and I input x10 it would move to x60 ( relative to the current position) I'm guessing I need to input a different G## value. Do you know which one it would be?

Thanks again

G90 = absolute position
G91 = Incremental mode
