You might also check Harrisburg PA- thats barely an hour drive, but maybe not good flights from CA. Also check Baltimore, its south, closer, and better Freeway connections.

OK, I see what you are doing- you create a description by taking the tool number and diameter.

In my display I show the tool number, and the diameter. If the system has a description I show it, otherwise I show 'unknown'

I have talked to Tormach and they will be updating their version to include the GetToolDesc. for now I'm going to leave the wizard as it is.

What I need to know is does my test work OK on a tormach system- does it display 'unknown' in a tool table, or does it give  VB error message?

Tormach does not have the getToolDesc command in its version. In the most recent version of the wizards I have code that looks to see if the path is not C:\Mach3. It not it is supposed to skip the gettooldesc command and just insert the word 'unknown'

Are you using 2.82 and this is not working?

Art wrote the code that tests the license, I have no idea how it works. Its possible he has a hard coded path, try putting the license at C:\Mach3\WizLic.dat Only other suggestion I have is to request a new license file from the Newfangled site. Send a mail explaning whats happening, Scott will replace your license.

The license should be in the base folder, not in the addons or newfangled folder. Im the standard version it shold be C:\Mach\WizLic.dat. I think Tormach uses C:\PCNC\WizLic.dat

I just checked and the Surface and Thread operation were resetting the tool number in the preview. All the others are OK

Ive made the fixes, and started a V2.83. I wont put it up yet, Ill wait to see if we find any more troubles in 2.82. I hate to keep posting new versions.

Ok, I found that. The preview code is not supposed to use the tool and speed numbers, just show the code. I wonder if any other Preview buttons do that?

Ill have to dig around and see what I find

Thanks for the note.

yes, these files should wind up in Addons\Newfangled

Note that the zip file has the name Newfangled282. Do not let that default as the folder name, there are references to other files that depend on the correct folder name

I replaced the V2.82 file just after posting it- I think about 6 guys had loaded it.

What I fixed is a long standing problem that has bugged me, but I finally found an easy fix.

Because the wizards are designed to let you build a complex part from several operations there is code in there to check each operation to see if its using the same tool as the last one. If so it does not output an M6 T# or an M3 S###.

Problem was it started up with tool num as 0. If you use tool 0 in your first operation, then it did not do the tool change or M3. I just fixed it so it always starts with tool num as -1 and speed as -1. This causes the M6 and M3 to output on every first operation.

This got me today when I used the surface wizard and it didnt put out the M3. It finally annoyed me enough to figure out how to fix it. I was always unwilling to fix it because every operation uses that code, I didnt want to have to fix it in 30 places, but with this fix I only had to fix the init file.

Let me know if this causes any problems.

See the new topic for V2.82. It should now work for both Mach and Tormach users
