Yes the screen designer will allow you to create a full screen display if you want.

Great screen, I'm using it now and it adds allot to the machine experience.
Thank you ;D

One quick questions and one problem:

Is it possible to add a diffrent color to the toolpath when there is multiple pass. I sometimes find my self coming back to the machine an hour later not sure which pass it's on. Not a big deal.

I have been using the new screen all of today, and loaded many diffrent toolpaths, but for some reason one of my G-code files is not refreshing in the new screen. When loading the attached g-code file and rotating the view in the screen gives me ghosting and freezes up Mach.

I have test the same file on two diffrent computers with  Mach3 Dev. Version 1.90.051 and the file work fine.

I have tested the file on two diffrent computers with Mach3 Dev. Version 1.90.071  and both have the same problem.

Can any one verify this and give me a hint at what I'm doing wronge. See attachment
-Thanks

This new 4th axis toolpath was a TON of work from Art and I... Art and I both didn't know if we could make Mach3 do what we wanted it to do... But as you can see we did it! Art is getting to be a very good OpenGL programmer! I only play the small part of making math do what he needs...  Art is truly a great programmer!

Just wanted to comment on how great the new toolpath screen is. ;D
The updated Mach is working great with no problems at all.
The new features and clarity are great.

If I can help with anything let me know.
