Mach3 Turn with Screen 4
« on: December 22, 2018, 11:29:54 AM »
Hello,

I am already busy with home made CNC machine for a couple of years. I am using a CNC router and a CNC lathe (retro fit). With both machines I am using Mach3. Unfortunately I noticed that the search function is not working for a while already. Probably is my question already anwsered in the past but it is impossible to find the anwser without the search function.

For my CNC lathe I am using Mach3 in combination with screen4 for some extra buttons, like homing the A axis. No (big) problems so far.
I prefer to have a slider to set the slow jog speed, or some buttons with ''1%, 5%, 10%, 50%, 100% speed'' would be also very usable. Not only for the lathe this would be great but also for my router.

I can find the OEM code for slow jog speed up and down, but below 5% it is very annoying because it will decrease with only 0,1%.

Can somebody give me some tips how to do it?

Already thanks!

By the way, I am from the Netherlands so if some of my questions are not clear please let me know.

I saw that when I double clicked at the slow jog DRO. But how can I change that value on an easy way, instead of clicking thousand times on the up and down buttons?

Your anwser forced me to think in the right correction. Just add the button and put a Setoemdro(3) behind it. Awesome, thanks!
