301  Third party software and hardware support forums. / Newfangled Solutions Mach3 Wizards / Re: Upgrading from a previous version of DFW on: February 27, 2013, 01:33:48 PM
The Mach3 version, also called the Addons for Mill that you paid $50 for are good forever, for all new versions. These are the wizards that run under Mach3.

The new Mill Wizards, that are a standalone program will need a new license, the introductory price is $50 the list price in about a month will be $75.

There are other differences. The new license is locked to a PC, you can run it only on one machine. You can run it in demo mode on any PC to create a job file, and view the toolpath, then take that job file to the machine with the license and generate the code. Bug fix versions will not need a new license, but if we come out with a major new version it will need some kind of license upgrade, but that is not fixed yet.

Think of Microsoft- you bought XP, got a couple service packs for no upgrade cost, but if you want Win7 you need to upgrade

Welcome to the support forum for the Mill Wizard for Mach4. I expect to keep all the support issues on this forum.  Im sure there will be reports on teh Yahoo group as well, but I will try to steer them here, because we can post photos, screen shots and code here to better explain problems

The product description page for this wizard is at http://www.newfangledsolutions.com/mill_wiz.php

The download link is the normal Mach download page, http://www.machsupport.com/downloads.php

Note that Clearance is not an absolute value, but is a distance measure. One example, when doing a multi-pass pocket it moves up the clearance distance above a cut for the rapid move back to the start for the next pass. Also on the start of a cut it moves down from the rapid height to the clearance distance above the Ztop of material.

All the other values are absolute values based on the current coordinate system.

Ok, I see. I am afraid that screen is already badly overcrowded, so Id hate to be adding more buttons to it. I hope to be doing something lie it with the new mach4, and there we have a much larger choice of screen widgets. Maybe that can be worked in there.

Thanks for the feedback

I think you can. The Step X, Y, Z buttons all allow negative number entry, and the value in the DRO is simply added to the current position, so adding a negative number should work.

Let me know if this is not what you meant.

 Zdepth always means the final Z level, based on the current Z zero. It is not a measure from Ztop of work to the bottom of the cut. We did have some debates about this, and it led Todd to re-draw my Z depth screen images in a way we thought was more clear.

I was just using the wizards to make a part for a steam engine model. I thought it would be nice to enter a rectangle length or width as the absolute coordinate of the feature rather than the current length. The real problem I have with things like this is making the GUI clear enough. I could make entries for both forms, but how would I display it in a way guys would understand?

At the top of this page, under the ArtSoft banner you should see a box labeled Purchase. Click tha tbox and down near the bottom of the page that opens will be a purchase button. The wizards are called 'Add ons' and cost $50

You will be sent a license file by email. Save that file then copy it to the folder in which the MAch3.exe file is stored. On standard tormach installs I think that is C:\PCNC

Once the license file is loaded the wizards will save the gcode.
