I’ve always wondered if I could PAUSE a run, make an adjustment, then have it pick up right where it left off.
Perhaps it’s just the nature of CNCs that your runs, once they start, cannot be interrupted. My guess is that some of you out there have developed a work around, or I’m missing something.
My scenario… I was running file with a feed of 200 IPM and 9000 RPM. All worked well on the test with the softer wood. But once I got halfway into the run with the harder wood, it became apparent that there may be trouble ahead. I thought, can I pause the run, put in a lower feed of 150 IPM then resume where I left off. No idea if this can be done.
I know some CNCs, like my old Shapeoko, or maybe it was the software I was using enabled me to adjust the feed while running. This is not a whine about one CNC vs another, just a question of how some of you more experienced CNC’ers have worked around this.
