Set up G-code step unit question. (Newbie)
« on: October 07, 2009, 10:42:12 AM »
My imported g code keeps coming up much larger than my DRO capacities.

Can I change the DRO display to inches/mm's ?

Max travel (shorth of home/limits)

 X = 78" (48.000 DRO display)
 Y = 25" (6.81 DRO display)

 I convert CAD DXF's to G- Code using Cut 2D using the inch designation. The program loads but doing a test run causes
the axis to go beyond the DRO display considerably.

I know I missed a basic step some where in the set up. Can anyone help? At least point me in the correct area of the forum
to search for the answer?

Hi, Mike

Sounds like your machine is not setup or calibrated  properly, Under Config, "Set Default Units" to Inch mode then you need to re-do your Steps Per and re-tune Velocity and Acceleration in Config, Motor Tuning.

Hope this helps, Chip
