Yes, later versions did fix some circular pocket problems.

Note there is a Change.log file in the folder with the wizards .set file that I try to keep up on any changes I make.

In screen 3 you could write the code in the screen designer. But then when you were running the screen if you wanted to edit code you had to exit the screen, open screen3, make your change then go back and re-start MAch.

Adding the edit button script option under the operator menu was a BIG improvement.

Not possible. Each instance of a button is a one time, run and delete.

Ive spent several hours leaning on Brian to fix that. He is sympathetic to the issue, but he seems to find other things to keep him busy. Maybe someday he will get to this.

Its already in the free Mach wizard set- its called Nesting, by Oliver Adler. It installs with every Mach system.

I wrote a simple one a while ago- I had to thread a 3" NPT into a throttle valve for a locomotive boiler I helped build. I actually cut 3 threads, on the throttle, a flange and a ball-socket coupling. They all worked, the boiler passed inspection and got stamped.

I did it as a quick and dirty, it would take some error checking and clean up to make it generally usefull.

Ill see what I can do.

To add VB code to a button you must first use screen4 to make it a VB button. Then open the screen, use the menu bar, operator, then Edit Button Script. All the buttons that are defined as Vb will blink, click the one you want to edit. An editor window will open.

see the VB topic in this forum for examples of button code.

The no shuttle error is a warning that you have the shuttle plug-in installed, but do not have a shuttle plugged in. Just delete the shuttle.dll file form the plugin folder and restart mach. Or just ignore the message, its harmless.

448  General CNC Chat / Show"N"Tell ( Your Machines) / Re: single phase vs 3 phase VFD's on: July 08, 2009, 07:48:52 PM
Ive hooked up many VFDs, and all of them Ive seen are designed for 3 phase in and out, but work fine with single phase in. They must be de-rated about 1/3 or so, but they will work just fine.

You definitely need the correct manual, because most of these have about a thousand parameters you can set and without the doc s you havent got a chance to get it right.

Put a button on the screen that has VB coded in it to activate the output. There are many examples of this in the VB section of this forum.

Assign a hot key to the button.

If you dont want to see the button on the screen make it real small, or hide it on the edge.
450  Third party software and hardware support forums. / Newfangled Solutions Mach3 Wizards / Re: Do NFS Wizards ignore Mach3 stepper acceleration and speed settings? on: July 05, 2009, 06:47:39 PM
The wizards simply generate G code, the code runs as a normal Mach run. There is no way for a wizard to change the acceleration.

The wizard does set a feed rate, so it is possible that if you didnt enter correct tool sizes and material selection it might set a very high Feed. But no Feed on a G01 move can ever go faster than the motors are tuned.

It might be better to run a few real simple MDI commands, just moving each axis an inch or two at a time until you confirm the machine settings are correct. Running a whole program happens very fast and a lot can go wrong quickly. Or maybe set to single step before you run the wizard code.
