Thanks, but aside from some critics I haven't done much... It's Wes who you wanted to address the compliment to Wink

Thanks Dan Smiley

Just a quick update. I know I said I was releasing this on Monday. I decided to add a few more things as well as I found a couple of bugs. I want it the best it can be before releasing this into the wild. Hope you guys understand.

I added a full diagnostics page. I also added full axis calibration that works like the one mill versions have had. Basically you tell it how far to move and then how far it moved (measured) and it with set your units. Each axis is independent. This should really help people with setup.

DaONe,
Will be a nice addition for the lathe users when it is released and look forward to trying it out.
Got all the wizards done also?

Wizards (IPS) are not done yet. Very time consuming. They also need to be thoroughly tested. I will be releasing a screen without them first. I will have an upgrade path for people who want the IPS system when its available.  More than half of them are complete.

Hi Wes,

Something I had forgotten to mention before I started this run of parts - would you consider adding a parts counter DRO? Should be fairly simple and you already have a macropump anyway so will only have to look at the Cycle button being activated and count it.

Another thing which may not be that simple is a total elapsed time DRO (from the moment Mach loads). It has to be zero-able. Together with the part counter it can be a very valuable tool for high volume runs.

For the parts counter you (I think) can use Fanuc style parts counting macros in the g-code. I will run some tests and post results. The "Loop" DRO would become the parts counter.

Full elapse time I really cant do in a standard screenset. Timing issues would be a big problem. Flash would take care of that but it would be far off if I decide to go into doing a flash screen.

Guys I have been hesitant to release anything as I just don't have the time for support. Been dealing with family health problems.  My brother (age 32) may have cancer and its been consuming most of my mental capacity. I have it ready just no way to support it.
