I am hoping someone can help me with this. It is very frustrating. I downloaded a new STL file for a 3 D project and it appears that the G Codes are working, however it is taking for ever for my Z axis to drop to the work piece on every move. Does anyone know why?? Z works fine no problem there, however it moves at a crawling pace while performing the G Codes…
How are you generating your gcode?
Can you share the first several lines of the gcode?
Downloaded Program and opened with several different programs. Used Universal G Code Downloader the very last time I tried it, and it still did not function properly. It Rapids to the location and lowers part way in rapid motion and then goes into an extremely slow Z descend. Once it gets there the X and Y move as they are suppose to.
Yes I will share them, no problem.
Let me get them…
Did you download an STL and generate the gcode yourself? Or did you download gcode?
GoXo .0000Yo .0000s1200M3
GoXo .6117Y-2. 0079Z0.2000
I downloaded the G Code from the STL File.
I have changed the Z inch several times and it does. Not matter what it is. There for I started to think that it was a the program, because it is running the program ok. It’s just the Z that is extremely slow.
We’ll need more lines than that, to see the z feedrate.
So you downloaded the gcode?
Just copy paste, don’t retype it.
OK. I will try it again. Thank you for the help, I greatly appreciate it… If it does not work I’ll send more codes in the event I can get ahold of you…
I was on here a few days ago trying to figure out why my Z axis moves so slow with a new STL 3 D picture I wanted to run.
Well I’m still fighting the same problem. Although I am leaving it run at the moment. X and Y work great. Z can move fast untill it is to lower down to the project then it moves about an inch every theee minuets if that. I am at this time wondering if the G code is wrong. G1Z-0.200F0.01. Is this causing it ??
