I am confused about the wizard you are using. The ones built in to mach3 dont have many error messages, and no errors are raised on the verify button.
What corner radius are you using?

Ok, I have looked at the wizard, and you are right, it is deleting the whole file. I know it did not do that when I wrote it several years ago. That code uses the special 'Teach' file that was built for the wizards, and I suspect something has happened to that function in one of the later mach3 releases. I doubt I can get Brian to look at that now. The code is doing the correct thing, or at least making the correct calls to mach3.

I am afraid the only answer I can give now is 'dont do that' I understand that is not a very satisfactory answer.

You can always edit the file with a text editor. The file is saved as C:\Mach3\Gcode\New Program.tap The file does have good comments in it to identify the various sections of code.

It has been a long time since I did that wizard, so I don't recall much now. I am sure I didn't let it go with an error like this, but I guess its possible. I will try to check it out later today.

The button missing at the bottom of the screen is a screen size problem. Use the normal windows method of enlarging the window, check that the enlarge window box is checked on the mach3 config->setting menu, then restart mach. The window should re-open big enough for the buttons. This has nothing to do with demo mode.

There is only one Mach Addons product, which gives you a license for the mill addons, NFSturn and a couple other wizards. The web page is not clear about all that is part of the Addons package. In demo mode NFSturn runs, but it will not save a file. Mach3 will run in demo mode, but there are  limits to the size of program and some turn features, I think threading, does not work.

Its not hard to write such a macro, you will find many examples in this forum. You will need to assign an output pin number to a signal number, then use a macro to set that signal on and off. If you intend to use the wizards to generate the code you will have to manually edit the code to include the macro.

I dont understand your problem. The Mill Wizard does not ask anything about users. Do you mean you right click the icon and ask it to run as admin? That should not be necessary, after installing the wizard just click on the icon and run it as the user you are logged in as.

The wizard does not use any INF files. Do you mean INI file?

To follow the Microsoft conventions we made the wizard load load files using the environment variables. When the wizard runs the first time it silently moves a couple files into the users space. This only happens the first time it runs.

First, you have an older version- there is a V0.08 now. You should find it in the first reply to this topic.

Next be sure you have the Auto Screen Enlarge check box under Config->general Config. It looks like you have a wide screen monitor. Do you have at least 768 pixels in the Y direction? Try a full screen view after you set the Auto Screen enlarge

The wizards do not use dxf files in any way. Lazycam is a totally separate package that does use dxf.

Ever is a very long time.

The wizard uses the same tool path code as Mach4, so it will happen some day.

And in an equally smart arse reply, some day can also be along time Grin

I will look at the possibility of adding a mirror function to the wizard, it sounds useful. I suppose both mirror in X and Y would be useful?
