The button missing at the bottom of the screen is a screen size problem. Use the normal windows method of enlarging the window, check that the enlarge window box is checked on the mach3 config->setting menu, then restart mach. The window should re-open big enough for the buttons. This has nothing to do with demo mode.

There is only one Mach Addons product, which gives you a license for the mill addons, NFSturn and a couple other wizards. The web page is not clear about all that is part of the Addons package. In demo mode NFSturn runs, but it will not save a file. Mach3 will run in demo mode, but there are  limits to the size of program and some turn features, I think threading, does not work.

Its not hard to write such a macro, you will find many examples in this forum. You will need to assign an output pin number to a signal number, then use a macro to set that signal on and off. If you intend to use the wizards to generate the code you will have to manually edit the code to include the macro.

I dont understand your problem. The Mill Wizard does not ask anything about users. Do you mean you right click the icon and ask it to run as admin? That should not be necessary, after installing the wizard just click on the icon and run it as the user you are logged in as.

The wizard does not use any INF files. Do you mean INI file?

To follow the Microsoft conventions we made the wizard load load files using the environment variables. When the wizard runs the first time it silently moves a couple files into the users space. This only happens the first time it runs.

First, you have an older version- there is a V0.08 now. You should find it in the first reply to this topic.

Next be sure you have the Auto Screen Enlarge check box under Config->general Config. It looks like you have a wide screen monitor. Do you have at least 768 pixels in the Y direction? Try a full screen view after you set the Auto Screen enlarge

The wizards do not use dxf files in any way. Lazycam is a totally separate package that does use dxf.

Ever is a very long time.

The wizard uses the same tool path code as Mach4, so it will happen some day.

And in an equally smart arse reply, some day can also be along time Grin

I will look at the possibility of adding a mirror function to the wizard, it sounds useful. I suppose both mirror in X and Y would be useful?
88  Third party software and hardware support forums. / Newfangled Mill Wizard / Re: M4 and Mill Wizard on: May 12, 2014, 06:40:17 AM
yes, that is the plan. Brain did some work on that a while ago, so when Mach4  is released it should be there.

Ok, the wizards that come bundled, and free, are user written unsupported wizards. It is a bit confusing that Brian Barker was listed as author, but those were done while he was still just a mach user working at U Maine.

The Newfangled Suite was written by Brian and he sold them for $50 using the company name Newfangled. These wizards run as VB scripts and screen sets under mach3. They are included in the mach3 installer, and will run in demo mode without a license. You can run them and see how they work, but they wont save the gcode unless you have the license.

The Mill Wizards is a new package, aimed at  the new Mach4. They are written in c++ and are fully standalone programs. They can run on any PC without mach. They have a demo mode that wont save gcode.

Both of the paid set of wizards let you build up a full part by doing individual operations. In your motor mount part you could run the slot operation 4 times, positioning each slot at the correct location, then get out one gode file that was the entire part. The free wizards are each independent programs, they will generate the code for one operation, like a slot, but you then have to save that and do the next step as a complete new job.

So, does that help to understand the world of wizards?

First, please confirm exactly which wizard you are using. Is it part of the Newfangled Suite, or the new Mill Wizard, or one of the unsupported wizards that come with mach3? Since they are all very different it is hard to answer a question without knowing which one we are talking about.
