Four Motion-Derivatives :
Position, Velocity, Acceleration, and Jerk
Two Data-boxes (for each Motion-Derivative) :
End (motion-value) of Previous Segment (Read-Only or Read-Write)
The data-box where you enter the motion-value for the End of the Previous-Segment.
E.g.: In the image above, the motion-value at the:
End of the Previous-Segment = 10mm
Start (motion-value) of the Selected-Segment (Read-Only or Read-Write)
The data-box where you enter the motion-value for the Start of the Selected-Segment.
Start of the Selected-Segment = 30mm
These data-boxes have two possible states: Read-Only and Read-Write
The Motion-Law, Motion-Derivative and the Control-Buttons determine the state of the two data-boxes.
Three Control Buttons (for each Motion-Derivative) :
End Control-Button - controls if you can specify the motion-value for the End of the Previous-Segment.
It has three(3) possible states - Do Edit, Do Not Edit, and Can Not Edit
Match Control-Button - controls flow of motion-values from the Previous-Segment to the Selected-Segment . It has two(2) possible states -
Do Force Start of the Selected-Segment = End of the Previous-Segment
Do NOT Force Start of the Selected-Segment = End of the Previous-Segment
Start Control-Button - control if you can specify the motion-value for the Start-of the Selected-Segment.
There are eight(8) different settings of the Three Control-Buttons. See Control Buttons: States and Patterns
In this example, the states of the 3 Control-Buttons for Position are:
EDIT the motion-value ...at END of Previous-Segment
DO NOT force the start (motion-value) to equal the end (motion-value)
EDIT the motion-value ...at START of the Selected-Segment
