The addons are also called wizards. You can use the menu bar for wizards, then select the newfangled one form the list presented. There is also a button on the main screen labeled 'conversational' that directly opens the newfangled wizard.

there is no addon.exe file

The NFS  wizards do support building complex programs by combining actions, but they do not allow changing the Z, as you have discovered.

This has been requested before and I have considered doing it, but it can lead to many ways to crash a tool if you are not careful. I have always figured wizards were for simple operations and should not make it easy to crash tools.

That is clearly not what you ought to see. Id give up on Screen3 or screen4 and go to MachScreen. it works much better.

V2.74 is very old and several fixes have been made since then.

All Versions are announced in the Newfangled section of this forum, and all are posted there. You simply download the zip file and unzip it into the Addons folder.

Loading a new version of Mach should not overwrite your settings, in particular if you have created a local profile. If you use the default profile you may have a problem. Just backup the profile before you update.

This is all well explained in the Mach Installation Manual.

Dave, why do you Expand to get the actual code instead of a RunScript?

Here is a photo of the finished machine



Im now finishing up some wizards for turning.

There is a green LED that indicates where you want the origin to be, In your example you selected the lower left corner. Then you set the the value of that point to the X and Y DROs, in this case .25, -.5

Length and width refer to an absolute measurement, length is in the X direction, Width is the Y distance.. In this case since there are only 2 holes per side, making one in each corner of a rectangle, the holes are 4.486 apart in X and 1.5 apart in Y.

You are setting 0,0 at the left edge of the stock, and .5 up from the bottom edge. That seems to me to be a strange place to zero off.

There is a manual for the wizards in the documentation area of this site that might help.

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.
