Rapid traverse
« on: November 15, 2007, 05:49:57 PM »
Ok, someone please tell me how to force the Rapid Traverse "G0" to travel at the max motor speed setting, or the rapid overide dro setting. I'll buy you a beer, or maybe two!

Whacko!

Do you mean hold down shift and the axis jog key at the same time? If this is it, I can't drink beer, it makes me drunk.

Ok, a diet soda then? With some Bourbon? Thanks for the reply Brett. No its when Mach executes a part program. With the g0 lines, the speed is the same as the feedrate. I got the max speed at 35 meters per minute in the motor tuning setup. The rapid feedrate set at 25 meters per minute.
After a g1 line, the g0 command to get to the next cut point is not a rapid traverse, just the same speed as the g1 feedrate. I had this one before, and fixed it, now I'm stuck between a Dead brain and a Brick wall. I just cant remeber what I did to fix it.

Whacko for Bourbon

It's in Plasma mode with THC, so the Z is used for the torch up/down. Yep all referenced home. I'm going home now too! I will fight the demon in the morning. I think I can control the rapids with some macro's. If not, I'll shout! Guess I ain't buying the beers tonight. But if I'm out your way, I'll buy you a few rounds anyway! Cause I'm a good guy!

Whacko for goodness!
