I wish there were a way to set the fast jog (shift+arrow) independant from slow jog or at least hack in a value for like 5 to 1 ration vs the 2 to 1 we have now. Anyone done this?

Manual mode jogging with keyboard.

I found the speed mult in code and changed it. I changed it so "fast" (meaning shift key) is the jog feed rate and "slow" is divide "fast" by 5 (was "slow" was jog speed and "fast" was X2). That way the jog speed slider can be maxed out at machine limits and not "fast" be something less. IMHO the original way the top half of the slider was sort of wasted.

What would be nice is if the jog speed could be independently set for each axis. My Z is very slow on the router, least travel, the most precise, and the easiest to crash. I would like to set it up to jog much slower than the big long 10ft Y axis jogging at 800IPM....

Well nothing can happen if you don't answer the question.
Each screen does jogging it's own way.

Anyways you seemed to get what you wanted - that's the power of open source!

Sorry, Main Manual Mode screen I guess. I thought KB jogging was the same in all screens that allow it. My Linux machine is at the shop so I am going off memory....

Thanks

Not to hijack the OP thread here, but i have been wondering the exact same thing in QTdragon. Shift+Jog doubles the slider jog rate which is certainly useful, however, im used to this functionality in Gmoccapy where shift+jog always gave me full rapid speed.

If there was a way to either set shift to always give full rapid or change it to a much higher number like 10x so it usually results in full rapid that would be great

In qtDragon you would need to change the handler file (copy it in your config folder first)

then in this function :
    def kb_jog(self, state, joint, direction, fast = False, linear = True):
        if not STATUS.is_man_mode() or not STATUS.machine_is_on():
            self.add_status('Machine must be ON and in Manual mode to jog')
            return
        if linear:
            distance = STATUS.get_jog_increment()
            rate = STATUS.get_jograte()/60
        else:
            distance = STATUS.get_jog_increment_angular()
            rate = STATUS.get_jograte_angular()/60
        if state:
            if fast:
                rate = rate * 2
            ACTION.JOG(joint, direction, rate, distance)
        else:
            ACTION.JOG(joint, 0, 0, 0)

change the rate = rate * 2 to

rate = INFO.MAX_TRAJ_VELOCITY/60

for max velocity - should do it.

Another perfect reply. I also was able to set my "slow" jog push button to 1/20 of the slider speed. I can now jog around at 250ipm (my rapid speed) by holding shift, release shift and move around at 60ipm to get close with my Haimer to set my WCS then hit slow and drop down to 3ipm to easily jog the rest of the way and sit my zero positions.

Basically the only 3 speeds I ever use on the machine all done without ever having to actually adjust jog speed. Such a simple quality of life improvement for the smallest of changes.
