How to Run Reverse
« on: July 10, 2019, 08:16:19 AM »

I am retrofitting a CNC Plasma system. When plasma cutting consumable tips fail there is a length of poorly cut material that needs to be recut. On our existing system we have a "reverse" button that runs from the current location in reverse. This lets us move backwards in the program until we are at a good cut location. We then resume cutting.

I see in the Mach 4 Operation Manual (Page 18) Section 2.2.2 shows a reverse run option. I think this is supposed to do what we are interested in. However, I can only find the matching button on the wxMach and wxMinimal sets. In both of these the button has no command assigned to it.

This is a critical function for us. How can we do it?
