About "slow jog" button.
« on: April 03, 2008, 03:36:54 AM »
Hello everyone!
I need some help related to the slow jog button.
With OEM button 111 and 112, i can change the percentage (%) of the jog speed by steps of 5% up or down.
The guestion is how can i change this step to 10%.
And how can i make a button that will set -lets say- 20%. Then by pressing onother button, to go back to 100%.
Thank you in advance!

Set the "slow jog" at the speed you want when, say, moving the tool to a precise point. I have mine a 10%

To jog at full speed - i.e. that set by your motor settings, press the "shift" key whilst pressing the "jog" key.
Not me driving the engine - I'm better looking.

Make two on screen buttons.  One called "100%" and the other called "20%"

Set them to "VB Script function edited in Mach3"

Then in Mach use "Edit Button Script" and insert the following code,

Call SetOEMDRO (3,100)

Call SetOEMDRO (3,20)

EDIT:  While I slowly typed, Jimpinder answered with a more sensible answer than mine.  :)
