First let me introduce myself I'm Tom from Nova Scotia, Canada. Built a 4' X 4' table that worked pretty well with the parallel port. Since then I got MaxStepper and I'm having a very difficult time getting things correct. I'm using an old Pentium 333MHZ computer Win98 with only KCam running. Nothing else installed. When I use the Jog buttons or a GOTO command I get the correct feed rates: 20IPM on X, 5IPM on y & Z. (Kinda slow I know but got to wait until I buy better motors and controller cards.) But when I try a GCode file I always get some odd feed rate like 11.7IPM even if I try only to move the X axis back and forth.
I have read and reread the forums and I can't figure this out. So here's a couple of specific questions
1. On a GCode line that combined motion in two axis one with a feedrate of 20IPM and the other at 5IPM what should happen?
2. I have created an .ini file with the settings for my machine that is in the KCam folder. Is there some other ini file somewhere that needs to be deleted?
3. I'm running the latest .26 version of KCam and I assume the latest MaxStepper since I just got it. Is there a previous version that might work better in my situation?
Thanks for any help anyone can offer. Got the weekend off and was hoping to get this straightened out and immediately ran into problems after my latest "fix". Hopefully someone has a better fix than I could come up with.
