Shortcuts to Kmotion Axes Jog for B, C, U, V

Post by AmitKumar171 » Thu Sep 20, 2018 2:08 pm

Hi All,

I am using KMotion Board. And in KmotionCNC software there are jog buttons are there respectively for X, Y, Z, A, B, C axes.

And Shortcut Commands are there for Step/Fast Jog Only 4 of 8 axes. like X, Y, Z, A.

How do i add more shortcuts to drive axes like B, C, U, V to Step/Fast Jog similar to Ctrl+Jog or Shift+Jog Keyboard Shortcuts. ?

Please help me in with this regards.
Thank You

AMIT KUMAR

Hi Amit,

We only have Jog Buttons for XYZABC. You can assign Hot Keys for the BC axes with the Screen Editor. All 3 buttons for the axis direction must be assigned the same Hot Key.

We don't have Jog Buttons for the UV axis. You could do basic Jogging of those axes using a momentary button to set a Virtual Bit. Then create a C Program to monitor the Virtual Bit and Jog the axis when the bit turns on and stop the axis when the bit turns off.

Hi Tom,

Thanks for the reply as you have said earlier I did edited KmotionCNCscreen editor to use DIVIDE KEY and MULTIPLICATION KEY to set keyboard jog for my c axis. I have set the key according to the sceenshot attached. But i am not able to run the C axis with above keyboard buttons.

Is there any other changes than screen editor
Screenshot (96).png
Hot keys 111 and 106 respectively. I want to set those keys to jog my C axis similar to X,Y,Z,A. As in picture i already set it in screen editor but it is not working.

Please help me to add a jog button for C axis.

Waiting for your kind reply.
Thank You

Hi Amit,

It seems to work fine for me.

Did you set all 3 buttons to the same hotkey?

Did you push the "Set" button?

Is "Keyboard Jog" enabled?

Are there any duplicate Hot Keys defined"

Attached is a working example.

Hi Tom,

Thanks for your reply.

I have done that. and i have seen your post in that KmotionCNCdlg file there is an option to set axes from 4 to 6 then it will work.

And it is working fine to me.
Thank You
