There are two videos on how to use the wizards on youtube. They are a bit old, there are now more operations in the current version, but they do show how to operate the wizards.

Note that these will show how to use the wizards to generate gcode, but will not show you how to use the resulting gcode on a mill.

The CNC workshop will return in June of 2015. This is the continuation of the event started more than 10 years ago by Roland Friestad, then later run by DIGITAL MACHINIST magazine.

This year the workshop will be held at the TechShop in Allen Park Michigan, between Detroit and Ann Arbor. the location is very convenient to the Detroit area, the Detroit airport, and just across the road from the Henry Ford Museum. The workshop will run between June 15 and 20, with the main session opening Wednesday morning, June 17.

This year the format will be similar to the past years- we will have 3 days of continuous seminars about CNC aimed at the home shop user. We have classrooms ranging from a tiered auditorium for over 150 people to small conference rooms. We will have an area for commercial vendors to show their products, and an area for individuals to exhibit their projects.

We are now seeking people that want to present a seminar session, or exhibit their project. Speakers and exhibitors will receive a discount on the registration fee.

TechShop has setup a web form to collect input at http://tinyurl.com/techshopcncworkshop. Please use the form to get your name on the list for further information and to let us know what you are willing to present, or what you would like to hear about.

An added feature this year will be 2 days reserved for special, in-depth training session. TechShop will be offering selected training on using various machines, and we may have vendor specific training. These sessions will be on Monday and Tuesday before the main Workshop sessions begin. There may be an additional charge for these sessions. Please let us know on the information form of your interest in any in-depth training.

A build class, based on the micro mill from LittleMachineShop.com and led by Weston Bye will be included. This session is limited to 12 people, so if you are interested in building your own CNC mill please let us know quickly.

Registration will open about February 1. Please use the information form to get your name on the list and to tell us what you would like to see and hear at the workshop.

I hope we can make this years workshop even better than those of the previous years. Please let us know of your interest so we can plan the best workshop ever.

I am a bit behind- I got a wicked cold, then ran into holidays. Im working on it now, hopefully another week will have a version out.

It does a spiral or helix ramp when cutting inside or outside the line or pocketing. If you do a groove is does a zigzag ramp to depth. What more are you looking for?

yep, it is spelled MaxPlung where it is saved and MaxPlunge where it is read.

Thanks, that is fixed now as well

The values 4500, 100 and 60 are hard coded defaults in the code. They are used only when the ini file does not contain settings for "MachineSettings"

I just found where the code uses [Machine] in one place and [MachineSettings] in another to store these values. Looks like a bug I will have to fix. If you edit both headings into your ini file it ought to work until I get this fixed in the next release. I will make MachineSettings the correct value.

Sorry abut that!

I have edited the source code so this fix will be in the next version. We are trying hard to get the next version out- there are a couple great new features.

They be saved automatically, and should be there whenever you open the program. If they are not getting saved it may be because your %APPDATA% folder has somehow been set to Read Only, sometimes done by backup software or when copying from a CD.

That is usually C:\Users\{username}\Appdata\Roaming\NfsMill The tooltable, fonts, and .ini files are all there, as well as Materials.txt

The xml  has been the source of some very strange problems in the past. I guess thats why Mach4, and the NFSmill wizard use ini files instead of xml.

I think I already fixed that in the version Im working on now, but I will check. I am getting close to anew version that is going to have polygons and polylines, including full pocketing. Its very nice, but I have a couple interface issues we dont like to fix. Maybe out in a week or two.

Well, it makes no sense to me, but I am glad you fond it. Unless you made a background color that somehow obscured the tool window. Did you try opening the Material window in the first NFS screen? That uses the same VB code, just with different data.
