How would one go about changing the Simulate pulse rate? I have my A axis rotary table setup and working right, I think on my machine. I can get maybe 20 rpm on the table and a move of 360 looks to turn the table 1 revolution. So, I come to my desk PC and attempt to get a better handle on how to use the rotary and EVERY thig is sooooo slooooow.

A move of the x or y maxes out at 1.34 in / minute. Finally when I started comparing screens between the shop and the desk, I see on the diagnostics screen that the pulse rate is "simulate" is there a way to boost up the speed so you can see the DRO moving? a 350 degree move on the A axis is going to take 7 or more minutes. Maybe just get up to real time. Faster would be great. I must be missing something basic here.

• Jeremy, that is an interesting thread and lots of things to consider, but it didn t apply to my question. How do I change the step speed in simulation mode?

Jeremy, that is an interesting thread and lots of things to consider, but it didn't apply to my question. How do I change the step speed in simulation mode? The best I can get on a lineal move is 1.34 inches while the exact same setup on the machine results in 45 in/min. This is more than a coordinated move issue, a single axis move is way to slow.
