No, there are no tab functions in the wizards. The next plan is to do a set specifically for routers, so I am collecting ideas now for what they should include.

In all Mach3 screens you must type the <enter> key to complete any DRO input. If you simply enter values and then click another DRO the value will return to its original number.

There are many wizards in the Mach3 install kit. Only the Newfangled Suite are supported, the rest are user contributed and unsupported.

The  unsupported wizards should run in the demo mode, they have no license code in them. The Newfangled suite will run and show you the code, but will not save the gcode when you return to mach3

I do not know anything about how this forum is managed, or what systems it runs on- I use Firefox without trouble.

Yes, it is mostly a week day event, but there will be a session on Saturday that will include a swap meet- or flea market, of cnc related stuff, as well as access to the vendor exhibits and one seminar. There will be a small charge for people that want to come just Saturday.

Lets not confuse events here. We are talking about a special event, the CNC workshop. This is not a mach or artsoft event, it is the continuation of an event started several years ago, this time being hosted by the techshop. Artsoft is only one of more  than a dozen vendors that will be displaying and talking about their products.

Artsoft, really Art, has a long history of training videos, and Brian has made a few so far. As things firm up, and Brian gets the time I am sure he will be making more videos.

In a previous life I did some professional sales training. There were always requests to video the sessions. I found the video disrupted the training to much, and then no one ever sat through the boring video. I think classes only work when you are sitting in them talking to the instructor live.

Sorry I don't have a good answer for those that cannot make it to the session.

We are getting close to the date for the next CNC workshop- June 15

We still have a few spaces in the two special classes being run on Monday and Tuesday before the main event opens. These sessions are all day, in depth classes limited to 10 students. You will get all day with Scott- Popa Bear- to learn all about Mach 4 scripting and Lua.

The Monday session is Wizards and mcLua for Mach4 will include:

    Overview of McLua
    mc.mc*********x calls
    Down and dirty coding guide
    How to make a Lua module
    Making a custom macro (to include showing how to use a macro template, and the debugger).
    Using the wizard template
    Basic wxLua GUI structure
    Integrating McLua with wxLua in Wizards

The Tuesday session is Mach4 screen design and ModBus:

    Overview of the Screen Designer
    Editing the PLC and other screen scripts
    Adding components and how to tie them into Mach4
    How to set up ModBus
    A walkthrough example of making a screen to read/write to a PLC over ModBus

These sessions are just $50 each.

see http://TheCNCworkshop.com for full details and registration.


67  Mach Discussion / Mach4 General Discussion / Re: CNC Workshop MiniMill build class - see sample at NAMES on: April 29, 2015, 06:40:25 AM
The mini mill was very well received at NAMES- in fact the mill class of 12 is now filled, with 1 on the waiting list.

The CNC workshop registration is open, the early reg discount will expire on April 30.

There is still a lot of space in the two all days classes by Scott- popabear on mcLus and screen design.

The nfs Mill package is a standalone program, not dependent on Mach4 in any way. It can connect to Mach4 and pass files, but its not needed. It was written using wxWidgets and in theory all we have to do is re-complie to get linux or Mac versions. The theory has not held up so good, but in time it will happen.

A turn wizard and a router wizard built on the same base is planned- I  think Brian wants me to start on router next.

I dont see any circular moves in that code- those lines with R values follow a modal G01 so ought to give an error. It needs a G02 or G03 in there.

Can you be more specific on which wizard you are using. I do not think the Newfangled wizards can do anything to generate that error message. Does the error come while running the wizard or while running the gcode it generates?
