Ok, buttons work ok. I also had a wiring error.

I still cannot use pins 35,36,37 They seem to be stuck on some output function. I have tried clear the config and reset it.

I have  plenty of extra pins, I will just not use those. This is a rather old PoKey55

I think my panel now does all I want, I will now put in on my machine and try to do some real work with it. Thanks for the help.

Ok, I have most of my PoKey control working, except for the jog functions. I have a series of buttons, for jog X+, jog X-, Jog Y-, etc. I have these as inputs on pins 34 to 41. I have configured these as inputs, and selected the "Input Jog x+" etc.

If I set them to negative inputs, all my DROS run wild, so I know they are working. But if I set them to not be negative inputs, then they do not move the axis.

How do I get the inputs to cause a jog?

Ok, should I be using the standalone PoKeys config software or the mach3 plugin? 

I do not plan to use a keyboard, just single input pins, mostly from a couple rotary switches.

i am trying to build a control panel with a pokeys 55. Just to test I have set pin 1 and 2 as inputs, to LED 301 and 302. I have put the 2 leds on my screen. When I connect the switch to ground pin 1 or pin 2 the pokeys I/O status screen shows them work, but the leds on the screen do not change.

I  intend to test these LEDs in a macro pump and  set some DRos. My VB script does not see the LEDs change.

What am I missing?

The config screen shows pins 35,36,37 as outputs, and 35 keeps blinking. I have not configured anything on these pins, and the setup screen shows them as unused. Why are they active?

But N, S, E, W are not points, they are edges. the origin point must be a point.

Is your mill accurately calibrated for steps per unit? this code seems to me work as expected. I dont see anything going outside the 5x1 area.

Ok, Im a bit off my mark right now, spent another day in the hospital, thats about 10 since Dec 1. All for damn kidney stones. I should be back to as normal as I get in a day or two. I assure you this will be my first effort when Im back

Please attach the job file as that gives me all the input parameters. Also what version are you running? I know I fixed some rectangle size issues a while ago, but I think they were related to minimum size.

There are two sets of wizards.The Newfangled Addons are only for Mach3, they use the VB and screen design features. V2.86 is the latest.

The Newfangled Wizard for Mill is a new product that will be used with Mach4, but it is written in C++ and is a fully standalone program, you can run it on any windows PC.

The Addons are simplest to use if you are running Mach3, they are integrated into the package and just a couple4 clicks gets your code ready to run. The New Wizard has a few things the old one didnt, like engraving and some pocketing code. We are working on several new features for the Mill Wizard, so someday it will be a much better wizard.

Ok, looks like a bug when you do a plunge cut instead of a ramp into the work. If you change the ramp angle on the tool settings to something like 5 it all works fine.

I will have to find this one and fix it and make a new release. That will take at least a few days.

I notice you are using Rapid Height and Clearance as the same value. Do you understand that Rapid is the height above all clamps where rapid moves are allowed. Clearance is the height that a plunge will stop moving at rapid speed and switch to plunge rate. It is also the height to raise the tool between passes. Using the same value is OK, just not using one of the wizard features.
