Jogging question

Post by RichardM » Tue Dec 05, 2017 4:55 pm

Hey no big issue or anything I’m just curious to why my shapeoko 3 will stop while jogging machine around there is no issues making cuts/shapes etc. runs amazing. Just when I go to zero my machine if I’m jogging fast it will cut in and out while using the keyboard arrows.

That is caused by the software allowing button down movement, and sending commands to the machine and trying to guess where the machine is and display the machine position on-screen. Every so often it gets out of synch --- rather than change what is displayed on-screen, the machine is forced to make a sudden movement to correct the position.
