Very nice. Is thre any need to sync the moves to the needle movement? Or is it just matter of moving at the right feed rate so you get net stitches? What about when a major direction change occurs- lie those 'points' on the flower like design.
I have another question I would like to have some input on.
I have added support for either Z strategy- I can equalize the cuts or follow the input exactly.
The current wizard set allows you to string together several basic operations into one gcode program. There is a button that allows you to delete the last operation entered.
Would it be useful to allow a more general edit of the operations? In the simplest case to delete any op, but maybe also to go back and re-enter the values for one of the ops.
Do people use the multiple ops ability? Has anyone used more than 2 or 3 ops in one program?
I now have all the basic ops that the V3 set has, plus the text engrave. What other base ops would be useful? Im thinking about one to cut an ellipse and one for a general polygon. What else is useful?
Brian expects to have the license code done in the next few days so I can release the first demo version.
As a matter of fact, yes. V4 is being done with a cross platform tools. I have been trying to get the new wizards to compile on my mac,but no luck yet- actually very little work on it so far, to busy with the win version. Also planed for linux.
Ok, the line you are hitting tries to establish a fileSystem Object. I had not thought about that, but it likely does call outside Mach into some MS stuff. You must be right that its something you deleted from windows if a clean mach install and a clean wizard instal doesnt fix it.
I am sorry,but I dont have anymore good ideas. Ill see if Brian has any.
Not likely to be another library. Mach is very self contained and doesnt require any other stuff.
We need to see if any VB buttons will work. On the main mach screen use the operator menu and select edit button script. That will cause all of the Vb buttons to blink. Click one of them and it will display the code in a window. Click the Run arrow in the top toolbar. That will run a VB script. You cannot do this on a newfangled wizard, they are password protected.
That is strange. Please try another of the Newfangled wizards, like copy cat or drillwiz. Also try another non-newfangled wizard. I want to see if this is wizard specific or a mach issue.
Actually, the wizard code never looks for the license, that is handled by mach when the wizard exits, not on startup, so I dont see how adding a license would stop the wizard.
What if you remove the license files from the c:\mach3 folder? dont loose them, make sure you have a copy somewhere else. Try removing wizlic.dat first, restart mach and see what happens. No need to re-boot, just a restart of mach.
I suspect you have somehow deleted the Materials.txt file that should be in the Addons/Newfangled folder. The continue button tries to open that fie to get the material specs. If it gets an error the script just ends and doesnt go to the next screen.
