Yes, quite an old topic.

I dont really understand the shape you mean, please tell me a bit more about it. If there is enough interest I can add it to the set.

It sounds like you may have some bad code in the M3 macro. Ive never seen anything like this happen, and the wizards are just calling an M3.

Cut rectangle would go into an infinite loop if you requested a depth per cut greater than the total cut depth.

As usual, unzip this file in the MAch3 folder. You should wind up with a folder under Addons called Newfngled285. You can delete the old Newfangled and remove the 285 from the new name.

The zip file has been moved to the sticky topic at the top of this thread

OK, I found it and fixed it. See the new topic on V2.85

Sorry for the delay in getting to this- I missed your original post.

It looks like you have found a bug. The preview code works OK, but the post does not. Ill get it fixed and have a new  version out soon.

I just got a KX1 and while setting it up, in inches, because thats my native unit, I found I needed 12744 steps per in instead of the calculated 12700. I posted on the smallcncsupport site and got Adams expected posting to use metric.

Just as a test I did a metric setup and made accurate measurements and found the pitch must be 502, not the calculated 500.

The machine has a slight pitch error in the screw, it may well be within tolerance for the screw design.

Bottom line is one should measure his machine accurately and set the steps per to the measurements, not to the calculated value.

Im doing a training video for LIttleMachineShop and I will be covering this is some detail.
368  Mach Discussion / General Mach Discussion / Win a CNC mill at Cabin Fever Expo, Janaury 14, 2011 on: September 20, 2010, 07:42:04 PM
For the past few years we have been holding a CNC activity at Cabin Fever Expo. This year we have a seminar with a chance to win a CNC mill

The mill is the 3501 (aka KX1) sold by LittleMachineShop.com They are sponsoring this event, along with Brian Barker of the Mach3 software and Cabin Fever Expo.

We will hold a seminar on Friday, January 14 starting at 1:00. The seminar is called "From Packing Crate to Making Parts" We will open a new 3501 mill, install Mach3 on a PC, make all the configuration setting, test the mill for accuracy and backlash. Then we will setup and run a program to make a part. The seminar will be conducted by Ron Ginger and Brian Barker.

At the end of the seminar a drawing will be held and someone in the seminar will win the Mill and PC. The mill will be on display, making parts for the rest of the weekend show in the Mach3 booth.

The seminar will cost $50, which includes your admission to the entire weekend at Cabin Fever as well as the seminar. We are strictly limiting this to 70 people, so your chance to win over $4000 worth of equipment is good.

To sign up for the seminar see http://www.littlemachineshop.com/3975

369  Third party software and hardware support forums. / dspMC/IP Motion Controller / VyTech router with dspMC on: September 15, 2010, 11:25:07 AM
I have a request to help convert an old VyTech router, 5x10ft table to use Mach. The router has Copley Controls amplifiers. The amps are not a current part number for Copley, but were an OEM version. I think they are +/- 10v input

Has anyone seen one of these machines?

Would a dspMC be a good choice for running it?

The Newfangled wizards do not include lathe.  You might try on one of the othesections of this forum, or on cnczone.

I have been working on some turn wizards, but summer has slowed my progress. I dont think they would do a jar shape however.
