There has been discussion about doing a build class, or building one machine to raffle. It seems that everyone likes the raffle from the survey sheets I collected last year.

A final decision has not been made yet, but it must be made real soon to get the word out in time. It is clear that some kind of CNC event will happen, and that Mach will be represented with at least an exhibit and several running machines.

Remember it will be in April this year.

Ok, I have fixed this problem. If Zstart is other than Zero the wizard will generate code that is correct, but assumes you have already removed the material from Z zero to Zstart.

As always, the new version is a zip file attached to the first entry in this topic.

Ok, I see the problem, I will work on it.

I am a bit unsure how to handle it however. If I start all the cuts at Z=0, and you previously made the small cylinder then I will be re-cutting. But if I just  start at Zstart, -1, then Im going to crash into the stock between Z0 and Z-1.

Thats a problem when each operation is independent.

The Write wizard is not part of the Newfangled set. It was written and submitted by a mach user.

If you look in some of the general topics you will see lots of discussion about Write. I believe there are two true statements. 1) write does really work, 2) Everyone has a big problem using it.

The good news is that the new version of the newfangled wizards, which is now about done and ready to ship, does have a write function that is easy to use and works well.  I have posted a couple youtube videos showing how the new wizards work, but I have not detailed the engrave function yet. It will probably be in the next video, maybe in a day or two. See the topic inthis section for discussion of the V4 wizards.

Files are saved to the standard gcode folder- c:\Mach3\Gcode

Also how do you use Metric units with the wizard?

I have not tried, but if you enter a G21 in mDI before starting the wizard, then simply entering your metric values should work.

In the video you popped up the editor window, how do you do this?

Do oyu mean the keyboard popup? Thats called AutoCalculator. Click on the Operator Menu then click AutoCalculator. It will stay work until you click again to turn it off. Then simply a click in any DRO and the keypad pops up. I love it at my desk because I can do all entries without letting go of the mouse.

Can I record a file and save it, and then just run it in the Mach 3 window?

Yes, thats exactly the idea of the record function. The saved file is simply Gcode, it does not need the wizard to run.

No problem asking questions, thats why the forum is here.

Those dont look like bad sizes. The Gcode files are basically empty unless you have special code you wish to put there, like some kind of machine init routine. The changle log is just a few lines of text, and the Threads file has only a few lines of sample data- its up to you to edit it to contain the threads you commonly use, and the values you like for thread depth.

But I would expect better luck with un-zip on the PC not the MAC.
