I have developed a new Drill wizard and added it to the Newfangled Suite.
This wizard is useful for one-off drilling jobs, like doing a base casting for a model engine. You have 2 sets of DROs, one for an absolute postion the other for and incremental move. A third set specifies the drill rapid height, depth, plunge rate and peck increment.
If you want to drill a series of holes you first setup the drill parameters. Then if you have an absolute location you fill in the DROs and click the DoIt button. The move occurs. Then you click the Plunge or Peck button and the drill cycle occurs. Next you could move to another absolute position, or move an increment. If you were going to drill a series of holes all spaced the same distance you could do the whole job by alternately clicking the Inc and Plunge button.
The wizard also has the ability to record a file, so you can both do the immediate job and build a Gcode file to re-use. When you click the Start Record button you are prompted for a file name.
The record function will look for a file named GcodeStart.tap and GcodeEnd.tap, which it will inert into the gcode file it builds.
There is a You tube video showing the operation at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VzzoybS-QPQ
the code is attached to this file. Just download it, unzip it into the MAch3\Addons folder and you re ready to go.
If you have a Newfangled license you are unlimited, if not it runs in demo mode and gives you a few moves.
