The drillwiz makes heavy use of the #expand function that was added to Mach in V3.043.036. Unfortunately it would be very hard to change the code since #expand is used 2 or 3 times in each button script. The only way to run it is on a later Mach.

I understand why Tormach supports only specific versions, and they follow well behind the latest Mach, but it does make it difficult when improvements are released. If you want to run the drillwizz you will have to run the later Mach.

I did make the screen oversize and the bottom of the buttons can fall off the edge.

EDIT!
OK, I have fixed the screen size and the ZeroX button label, new version on reply 1 above.

What version of Mach are you running?

It sounds like you have something wrong with your threading setup. The wizard simply writes a line of code, then its up to Mach to run it.

Threading only works for a licensed version of mach- the demo will not thread.

Threading requires an index pulse, have you checked it on the diagnostics page. Note you need to rotate the spindle by hand because the LED only flashes on briefly once per rev.

There are some other threading suggestions in the general mach part of this forum.

That would be a nice addition to the set.  Like all the other suggestions, its just a 'small matter of programming' Right now I am working on a total new re-write of the entire set for V4. I will continue to support the current set, but only to fix bugs, not to add new features. I may get time to make some improvements someday.

There is a problem if you keep two versions. One must have a different folder name, like Newfangled286. This causes a problem on the setup screen because it looks for the materials file in the folder Newfangled.

It is best to just keep one version installed, and be sure its in the Newfangled folder.

It doesn't matter where you unzipit, as long as the files wind up in the right place on the shop system.

there are no bit maps- they are just plain buttons, not image buttons.

I just checked and the screen set is designed at 1024x768. I guess that accounts for an 800x600 screen not showing the bottom row of buttons. I thought the auto re-size would handle that but I guess it doesnt.

Mark, what screen resolution do you use?

This is a screen size problem. I did my work on a large screen, and I thought I had set the finish screen size to be 1024x768, but several guys have had trouble with the bottom row of buttons. I dont see a problem on my machine, but Im sure there is something there.

I will try to find a small screen to try this on and get it right.

What size monitor do you use?

Actually, the thread wizard is supposed to do internal threading if you set the Xstart and Xend appropriately, I have not tried this, but the threading code looks like it should work.

If you want to try it some air cuts first might be wise.

I want to add a taper table, will get to it someday.

glad you like the wizard.
