You can lower the refresh rates in the screen editor.  Click on the top element in the Screen Tree Manager and it is the "Refresh Interval".  It defaults to 50ms.  100ms would be more of a Mach3 speed.

That worked for me. Launches to a complete screen set within a few seconds and uses about 2-5% CPU with about 10-12MB of RAM. Much better Smiley

Thanks,

Installed Build 1767
XP Home 32bit
4gb Ram
2.6ghz Dual Core AMD Athlon

When launching Mach 4, window is blank and a pop up window stating "Connecting Toolpaths"  will hang there for at times, 2 minutes. But if i minimize window and then Restore window, pop up window is gone and Mach screen set is loaded.

Another note....Dont know if this is meant to be like this or not, but didnt notice this extra step on the first Build release when configuring the Keyboard plugin.....
Keyboard plugin needs to be enabled and configured, but can not select a key until Mach4 is restarted.
After restart then i can select a key to assign.
Then restart Mach4 again to enable the keys.

Also Mach4 idles at 40% CPU and about 225 MB of Ram

Thanks again,
Troy

Whoever might be interested.
I made some small updates, one was adding Power Feed Controls to the Offset Screen.

Hi Scott,
 I didnt notice the labels the first time, very nice. The overall, looks well organized and not crowded. Makes me wish i would have invested in a bigger box for my MillDrill when i converted it. Smiley

Those CAT5 cables have a nice clean look.

Ok. Sounds good.

Just for thought.... do i understand correctly, the way NFS Mill and NFS addon generate Gcode is different? Asking because i can do a .500" wide pocket with a .375" dia endmill with no errors.

Thanks,
Troy

Gave the Rectangle Gcode a try on the mill and the lead in & out starts outside of toolpath when trying to do an inside cut.

If i increase the width of pocket, then lead in and out appear inside of toolpath. Attached is job file. Ill give it a run on the mill and see what happens.

Hello Ron,
 I tried doing a Rectangle Pocket .......
2.5" long by .5" wide using a .375" tool, but i got a pop up window while in the Pocket config window that states "Width must be larger than tool times 2."

So i tried a Mill Rectangle and the tool path shows lead in and out going beyond the width of rectangle.Look at screen shot.

Is this on the list or?

Thanks,
Troy
