MRL Sweep button

Hello, I am trying to utilize the Sweep setting in the Extra tab on each finger and noticed its very slow. 

Any way of increasing this ? It doesnt seem to respond to the velocity setup. Also can some one point me to the direction to explain the power settings further in the tab ?  thanks

Hello theDVSguy,

Since there is a lot of activity on the new code, it makes a big difference on the details of what version your using.

Version is key in describing software challenges.

Without more information I "think" you can easily change your sweep speed in Python like this


and velocity like this


which disable velocity control and the servo should move at full speed

Hello,  thanks sorry for not including the details. I am running on a Mac version myrobotlab.1.0.2693.10.

So can I set this in a defualt of some kind ?  Also I notice everytime I boot up MRL I have to assign COMs etc.

I changed config files but it still seems to ask.  Should settings stick once I apply them ? or is it a fresh start everytime I boot up.

thanks for your help ;)
