Sweep-Display dialog-box

Use the Sweep-Display dialog-box to read the exact motion-values of each motion-derivative as a function of the Cursor-Position on the X-axis, defined by the parameter  Cursor Position .

The Master Machine Angle [and the kinematic model] also moves to the same 'Cursor Position'.


To open the Sweep-Display dialog:

1.Click Edit toolbar > Sweep-Display icon




Cursor Position: [Read-Write]

The Cursor Position parameter specifies the position along the X-axis of a vertical cursor in the motion graph.

Typically, use the Spin-Box tool to move the Cursor along the X-axis by equal increments.

Note: You can also use your keyboard to enter any real number. E.g.: 3.141592653589793..., and the motion-values are evaluated exactly at this X-axis value.

Position ; Velocity ; Acceleration ; Jerk [Read Only]

The motion-values of each motion-derivative at the Cursor Position along the X-axis.


Edit 'Digits' and 'Precision' of the motion-values with:

Edit toolbar > Active Motion Settings > Number Format tab | Number-Format separator.

Maximum 'X Cursor Position' = 'Motion-Width''Number of Steps' / Motion-Width.

For example:

oNumber-of-Steps = 360, Maximum Cursor Position ≤ 359
oNumber-of-Step = 3600, Maximum Cursor Position ≤ 359.9
