Mach4 Pokeys57cnc and Consew
« on: August 23, 2020, 10:58:32 AM »
Lathe works 98% up until the gcode calls for a linear feed.
Consew motor runs and is controlled independently of Mach4 through its own controller. Is there some way to override Mach4 into thinking it’s connected to the motor, as I assume it’s not moving because it does not detect any spindle speed?

G97 (fixed rpm) and G98 (mm/min) may be needed if you have no speed feedback.

Well done Mr. Waterworth.....you got me turned in the right direction... needed to get out of the feed per rev (G99) and Constant Surface Speed (G96) which both need spindle feedback and into Feed per min(G98) and Constant Speed (G97) which doesn’t.
I am now rippin chips thanks to you..
Cheers
