Sorry I have not answered this sooner.

I think it is the Microsoft redistributable package. see http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=29 for the download for 32bit systems.

Unless you are mixing units and programming the wizard in mm on a machine setup in inches it is simply not possible for the wizard to make a longer move. The wizard simply writes gcode. Use the MDI bar and enter a move, like G1 z1 and see if Z moves exactly 1 inch.

Have you installed mach3 in a folder other than C:\Mach3 ? I use that test to weed out the Tormach version.

Otherwise I cannot explain why it does not read the description. I simply have access to a mach3 system call that reads the tool table and the wizard can only display what it gets.

The wizard uses a call that returns the tool description field from the tool table. You need to edit the tool table from the mach Config ->ToolTable menu.

If you are running a Tormach system they make a change to the tool table so I cannot get the description in a wizard.

Have you tested the calibration of your machine? When you command a Z move does the machine really move that amount?

The wizard simply generates gode moves, it cannot effect how mach executes that code.

First look at the setting in the general config- do you have it set for automatic tool change? Then look at the M6 macros in your macro folder under your profile name. Also it looks like you entered on 1 in the tool number- for turn operations the tool number must be in the form of 0101 which is the tool number and the offset number to use. When you enter the number in the DRO it will only show as 101, VB likes to wipe off the leading zero.

I will check it out, thanks

I don't think thats a glitch. I believe the X icon is a direct window command and windows blows the program away without giving it a chance to clean up. Thats why apps have an Exit button. Behind it I can have code to do anything I need to do.

Brains, plug ins and script are all ways to enhance or expand mach3 to run on more complex machines. If you are new to cnc you likely do not need to use any of these, at least for a while.

To generate gcode to run mach3 to make a part can be done with wizards or CAM software. Some common CAM software is sheetcam, cambam, cut2d or other vectric products.
