381  Third party software and hardware support forums. / Newfangled Solutions Mach3 Wizards / Re: V2.84 fixes thread mill bug on: July 05, 2010, 01:38:13 PM
It was just reported that the code generated by this version has an incorrect version number in the header, for example:


(Code by Newfangled Wizard, 7/5/2010)
(Version 2.83)   *********************************should be 2.84
(Program Posted for Aluminum )
G0 G49 G40.1 G17
G80 G50 G90 G98 
G20 (Inch)
.....

Its not worth doing a new version just to correct this, but when I next do an update Ill  fix it.

I ran the wizard with your inputs and I get the correct Gcode

(Code by Newfangled Wizard, 7/5/2010)
(Version 2.83)
(Program Posted for Aluminum )
G0 G49 G40.1 G17
G80 G50 G90 G98 
G20 (Inch)
(***** Rectangular Hole Pattern *****)
M6 T7
M03 S4000
M9
G00G43 H7 Z0.2
G73 X0.25 Y-0.5 Z-0.63 Q0.2 R0.05 F5.7
 X4.736 Y-0.5
 X4.736 Y1
 X0.25 Y1
G80
M5 M9
M30


Your suggestion of a -4.486 is inconsistent with the input. You have input that the lower left corner should be at X=.25
Y=-1.5 With 2 holes the other would be the Xstart value, plus the length, in this case .25+4.486 or 4.736. There is no way to have a negative value for the X coordinate with this input.

I cannot explain why your code generated by the wizard has the -4.736 value. When I ran it it did not generate that value.

Its also a bit strange to specify a  -1.5 for width.. In my view a width is always a positive number. In fact the wizard takes the absolute value of both length and width.

Sorry I cannot repeat your problem, it appears to me the wizard is working correctly.

Thanks for the note on the version number, I did forget to update that on the V2.84. I will make a note and correct it with the next version.

Thanks for all the details. I will have a look at the code and see whats wrong.

First, you ought to update to the latest version, 2.84. There have been several bugs fixed.

Sorry, but the wizard will only allow starts at the 3:00 o'clock position. That just how it was programmed.

There must be something wrong with the way you have copied the license.  I know nothing about Macs, so I have no idea hat it does when you save a file. The license file is a binary file, and if the MAc is somehow treating it as a txt file it could be getting screwed up.

The license file must be called WizLic.dat, it must be in the mach root directory- usually that is C:\Mach3 for Tormach I think it is C:\PCNC If a proper file is there  it works.

Does you Mach license work? It should show your name in the Help->About box

What nesting function are you using? The Newfangled Wizards dont have nesting in them.
387  Third party software and hardware support forums. / Newfangled Solutions Mach3 Wizards / Re: License not effective on: April 29, 2010, 08:20:56 PM
The latest version is 2.84 I believe it works fine with the Tormach folder structure. If it doesnt I will fix it until it does.

The latest version is here in this forum, you can download the .zip file and extract it into the Addons/Newfangled folder.

Be sure your license file is named exactly WizLic.dat and didnt get a .txt appended to it by the mail system. Note that windows explorer by default hides some file extensions. There is an option to show all fiile extensions.

Your steps per inch are not right.

First be sure you have set the base units to inch- thats the first menu pick on the Config menu.

On a Sherline the motor is directly connected to the screw, so it takes 200 steps for the screw to make one turn. On an Inch Sherline thats .050, so it takes 20 turns to go one inch. That makes it 200 x20 or 4000 steps per inch. If you have the Xylotex set for 8 micro steps ( you should if you dont) then you need 8x4000 or 32000 steps per inch.

You also ought to download the Mach install guide and read it. It will take you through the setup step by step. Much more likely to succeed that way than trial and error.

Mach does not support a general way of licensing wizards. the newfangled ones are handled as a special case in the wizard open code.

For V4 Brian is looking at some changes that would let you use compiled VB code. With this your code would not be visible and you could handle any license scheme within the VB code.

There is no conflict, they both take their own place in the addons folder,only one can ever run at once. The only conflict us the screen button will only look for a folder with the name "newfangled'. If you have unzipped the files into newfangled283 then it can only be found by selection off the menu.

There really is no reason t keep an old one around, nothing has been removed from a version,just bug fixes.
