Sorry, but I do not understand what you are doing.

Are you using one of the Newfangled wizards? which one?

When it returns to Mach do you see the code OK? can you save the code and post a copy here?

If you are saying you just copied all the old files to the new machine thats the problem. The Mach install process does some stuff to install the driver and sets some registry values. Thats why the re-boot after the first install is so critical.

Download a full Mach kit from the web and run the install process on the new machine. After its installed you can replace the xml with your old xml to get back to your config.

You might also try to download the mach install manual and follow the steps in that. It is clearly spelled out and goes through all the needed steps.

If you paid for the Newfangled wizards you were mailed a file named WizLic.dat which should be in your Mach3 folder. If you have lost it send a message to license@machsupport.com and give your name and about when you purchased the license. If Scott can find your original purchase he will send you a new copy of the license.

The Newfangled wizard will always load the same view. However, there is a rectangular pocket wizard and one that just cuts around a rectangle, but does not pocket it all out. Are you confusing the two different screens?

When you are editing one of these two level button/leds how do you select the LED if you want to edit it? All I have found is to select the button, drag it out of place, then I can select the LEd. But then its messy to get the button re-aligned.

You cannot do this in Mach now. I have talked to Brian about making it possible in the new VB4 but he has not decided to do it yet.

All you can do is have some other button script read the DRO and make the adjustment.

The cut circle routine uses a circular lead in and lead out so you will see several moves besides the circle you want. The ramp in and out are properly handled if you ask for a groove the lead happens above the work- clearly it doesnt help with the cut, but it still makes a lead in.

In addition to the circular lead in there is a linear move to turn on the cutter comp.

As far as I know the circle routine works for all cases, Ive tested it a lot and i use it fairly often.

I have one I did for my emco lathe. It does the tool changer. Its not really finished but maybe it will be of interest.

I did it for a small touch screen so its only 640x800. It uses many of the screen buttons from the standard lathe screens

Id like to see a way get a VB Sub attached to each DRO that would be called when the DRO is changed by the user.

In almost every wizard screen the user can update a bunch of DRO's then finally pushes a'write code' button. Then I have to run through all the DROs to be sure they are valid and pop up error messages.

It would be much cleaner if when the user tried to change a DRO I could instantly error check it and popup an error then, while hes still looking at the DRO.

The VB code would not be run if the system changed the DRO value, or if some other VB code changed the DRO- only when a user enters a new value.

Have a look at the CopyCat wizard. With it you would lay your template on the table and manually jog the router around the path you want to follow, clicking on each corner or major feature. When its done the wizard generates a gcode program that will repeat that path.

There is a topic in this forum about CopyCat and its use. There is also a link to a nice doc on how to use it.
