    Default Mach3 jog speed

    I have a Mach3 mill with different motors on each axis. X and Y have the maximum speed of 5000mm/min, while Z can only do 1500mm/min.

    Problem is, the jog speed in Mach3 is set as a percentage of the maximum speed for each axis. If I set the desired speed for the X/Y, then my Z axis jogs too slow. If I set a reasonable speed for the Z axis, then the X/Y movement becomes too fast.

    Is there any way to adjust the jog speed for each axis independently?

    If you set the speed you want for the xy axis to say 50% then when you jog Z you should be able to press shift+Z jog key to jog at max on Z just a thought.

    Unfortunately, the keypad I use for jogging does not have a shift key. But thanks for the food for thought, maybe I can make a key macro or something.
