I thought it might be nice to look at a pretty women while I worked and her eyes get red if I make a mistake Grin
I used Poser and a picture of my wife for the E-stop model, I also have used this same model for a custom guitars design.

The "E-Stop Head" will not be in the final Screen, thought it intresting to give idea's to other screen desighners Grin

The "Panels" folder should be in "Bitmaps" and the "Panels Beta.set" should be in "Mach 3" folder.

Inside of the "Panels" folder should only have one "Leds's" folder and 8 PNG's.
If it doesn't work I'll check it out.Let me know Grin

This screen set incorporates an idea I had while working on a project. It is not fully functional

What I found is that my brain, no matter how many times I use Mach 3 just can't handle seeing everthing at once. My eye's start bugging out of my head when switch from one page to another. What I figured is that my eyes's and head want to process everthing on the screen at once, I find my self looking for a button I routinely use everday. Embarrassed

So what I thought would be of use is to use containers and panel's.
Thought I'd share this so others can use the idea.
One thing to metion is that it is a complex task to set up page for all of the diffrent variable possibilities of open/closed panels, but I believe this is a good consept that would benefit many. I believe that I'll be able to fit all of Mach 3 controlls on two pages without looking cluttered.

This is a test screen and as of now can only:

G-Code Load/Close/Edit/Start/Stop/Pause/Play/Hold

On Line/OffLine (Power amp LED)

E-Stop (Womens Head)

Simulate is a panel

MDI is a panel

*Place the Panels folder into Mach 3\Bitmaps

Here is a "Feed Rate" gauge.

I believe this could be usefull if I can get the needle to rotate to a spindle speed or Feed speed. Any idea's, maybe for Artsoft's future projects. Grin

Ynneb, I use Firework, 3D Max and a little Adobe. Smiley

Thought I'd share an idea about using gauges with the other screen designers.

The gauge can illuminate diffrent color hues depending on a on/off state,
they can also have a needle that can switch to display on/off.
I am also intrested in using gauges to display speed/feed like a car speedometer as well.

The screen that incorporates this idea will be ready in a few weeks to a month along with two others(I currently have a big project that I must finish within the next few weeks, so I have little time to work on the new screens as of now Undecided).

You'll have to change your computer's screen resolution to something higher then 1024 X768 like 1280 X 960.
I believe Art is working on a new Screen designer program or will fix this soon. I use multiple monitors so I can work on a screen them test it out on my other monitor that is set to 1024X768, otherwise you'll have to keep resizing your screen resolution. Sad

If you can get your money back and go with a K2 CNC,
much better and around the same price. Worth every penny Grin

You might have to Regen a screen to see the toolpath,with touchscreens you can simply tap the Toolpath display twice or hit the Reg button.
If this doesn't work goto:
Config/Toolpaths/Lines from Last to Current(If this is not check you'll only see small dotted lines), but I'll add a "View toolpath On/Off button to resolve the problem.

I'll add:

Follow toolpath On/Off
goto Z button
 Safe Z DRO
Feed Hold button
459  Mach Discussion / Works in progress / Re: 3 Axis Simple Screen setup 1.0 (Also good for TouchScreens) on: May 07, 2006, 05:37:19 PM
I'll add:

1. "Momentary" jog buttons
2. manual data input
3. Fix spelling (Diagnostics)
4. Fix "Jog on/off
5. Fix "two state buttons" (look bad when switch between on/off states).
6. Add place holders/button
7. Add skins to "Drod's"
8. Built in Keyboard(working on might take a little while)

What about a spindle control?

Please let me know what is missing or out of place.
Please feel free to add,change,rearrange and repost.
This screen set belongs to Mach 3 members.

 Grin Super happy everyone got it to work.  Grin

Check to see if you are pointing Screen 4 to the right folder.
In screen 4 under "Defaults" and "Mach location" point to Mach 3 folder.
