Not until. after Brian releases the new cutter comp. As soon as that is out, and stable, I will fix the wizards.

I do not know of one. There was a recent list of all the DROs posted, but its only a list with descriptive names, not useable variable names

I suggest you also print, or buy a copy of the printed, Install Manual The complete sequence of setting up a machine is detailed very well.

See the downloads tab at teh top of this page.

Yes a probe can be used to pickup accurate points. That was added recently so be sure you sue the latest version which is on this forum, not the one in the mach install

If you want it to appear as a turn  wizard then it goes into the c:\Mach3\TurnAddons\QuickThreads. It will then appear on the list of wizards shown by the menu item for wizards.

Can the camera plugin be modified so we can adjust the crosshairs to an adjustable center? As it is we must mke a mechanical adjustment to get eh camera exactly centered on the axis of the spindle. If the crosshair was adjustable we could do it in software and make a much more accurate adjustment.

thanks

There were a number of VB threading bugs fixed in more recent versions of Mach- up in the 3.020 and later. I suggest you upgrade to the latest Mach and I think this issue will be gone

I dont get it- how do you align the cross hair to  the machine spindle? How do you use this?

A lot of topics getting mixed in here.

On the license question, Newfangled did not attach a specific license to the wizards.  There is a code protection scheme with a password, but its not to hard to get around. Obviously we would be greatly upset if someone took the code and tried to sell a modified version. But if a user figures out how to modify it for his own use there really is no restriction.

My worry is that modified version will get out and make support impossible, Its hard enough when there are old versions around, but trying to support code that has been modified by a user is impossible.

There are countless ways to restructure screens and wizard like functions. I have started a lathe set that has screens for manual mode, running programs, facing, boring, tapering, etc. These are a bit like power feed screens where they do the operation when you push the button, not generate Gcode for later use.

My lathe screens are not finished, and I just sold my lathe so it will be a while before i have another lathe running and can get back to work on the screens.

I had along talk with Brian last night about screen issues. There are some problems with the way it currently works- seen by the long time it can take to paint screens when you load wizards or screens. He has some fixes in mind that may get into Mach V4. That would make much quicker to switch screens and make a many page set possible.

Back to the original question, Im not sure I understand what you want by a single hole drilling. Do you mean you want the wizard to make stops at each location, like a 2D machine would? Because of the complexity of getting into and out of the wizard a choice for a single hole seems more trouble than its worth.

I have only recently started to let the control do drilling. I was always afraid to drill under power, especially for small drills. I would let the wizard generate the code, then Id run it in Single Block and just hit start after I drilled each hole. My mill has the motor on the knee and a free quill.

I have lately been just letting the program run and so far it has not broken a drill.

I has occurred to me I could do a better job of feed rate calculation. Now the wizards figures a feed rate base on a milling move, then uses 50% of that for plunge. I could actually calculate the feed rate based on chip load and tool RPM. I will do some experiments and see what I can do.
