Mach3 buttons
« on: April 08, 2006, 04:15:53 PM »
Is 'Feed Hold' in Mach3 the same as 'pause'(in Mach2)?
And 'Reverse Run' is this like doing a 'climbing mill' cut of what you were otherwise 'cutting normally' using the g-code that is loaded in the 'program run' page?-Keith

Pause = FeedHold
and Reverse is used to run the program in reverse... when you are running a Gcode program press feedhold and rather than pressing cycle start press the revers run button. the machine will go back over where it had come from.

Thanks Brian,so I guess without some messing around with the code,I can't use the reverse run to do like a 'finish pass' in the opposite direction the major cut takes place(since ,for instance,the last few lines include a rapid plane above the piece and that's where the last x and y would be cutting).-Keith
