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

I have fixed a few more problems and added code to test for Tormach users. This version should now work fine for alll Mach users. The only problem is Tormach users will not see a description in the tool table display, instead they will get the word "Unknown"

I have fixed the Preview code in Cut Rectangle to properly disply depth per pass.

I have fixed the label in Circular Pocket, now it goes in the direction requested and the miling type matches.

Let me know if there are any problems. I really want to hear form a Tormach user. The ares to watch are the Material handling on the first screen, editing operations on the main screen, and the tool table. Otherwise Tormach users are identical to regular Mach users.

I hate doing this, but I just changed v2.82

Troy, You are right, I found an error on the preview screen that was not setting the depth per pass correctly. I have fixed it, Ill put up a new version soon.

I see the circular pocket working correctly on CW vs CCW. Has anyone else tried this?

Tool change has a couple strange issues. The wizards are setup so you can build a complex part by adding individual operations. There is code to check if the tool has changed and only issues a tool change if needed. The problem occurs with when you use the same tool number as the last use of a wizard. Ive looked a fixing this but it gets very messy, and effect every screen. Ill see what I can do with it.
