Jogging with keyboard and MPG?
« on: November 22, 2008, 12:52:50 AM »
Can I make Mach3 3.042 jog with the keyboard and MPG together? If yes how?  When I select MPG on the (TAB MPG screen) the keyboard doesn't jog.
I wanted to have the keyboard jog at full speed and the MPG slow to get the machine to spot I need,  the X axis is long so when by the keyboard I would jog it to the approx position and then walk over to the moving head that has the MPG on it and get it to the spot I need.

Thanks

Dennis

You can only use one or the other as far as I know. What you could do is have a physical button set up on your pendant to change between Jog and Keyboard, that would allow you to change back and forth easily.

The button is what I will do. 

Thank you Hood!
