have a question about your probing program have you fixed the problem with retract.
I ask this as when I was using your z probing it quite often crashed into the table. I changed it to one I got from hosses web site and the problem went away.
the only differences was it included retract.

if I did not reff all home more than 25 mm / 1 inch above the work pieces it would crash straight down I have a very big machine that I don't always have the homing switches on or I just did not have enough hight left above the work pices to do it.
I have never had a problem since I changed the codes.
your screen set is very good that is the only problem I ever had with it.

new screen set that is about to release is ment for metric and imperial, it is critical you designate z max or z zero in machine coordinates, referencing z axis take care of that.  New viideo that will be posted on youtube explains lot of your issues. Also I am creating website that users can directly send issues or concens that may come as posiible future upgrades.

One more YouTube video pending, list of keyboard shortcuts etc.

I'm having trouble loading the screen set.  It's as if the JPG is not loaded or found.

Keep in mind during install you need to indicate where mach3 is installed.

I do have youtube video showing installation process

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lVX537uj1cU&feature=youtu.be

Its is also good idea to have previous verion of my screen uninstalled as good measure.
Its been several years and I did not have all of my old filles to create installer as upgrade.

I am having the same issue with my screenset.  All the files are in the correct location, loads but all I get is the black death.  I have tried this on two different machines and also tried different profiles to see if there was something in the profile that was messing it up.  Any suggestions for a fix?

Thank you,

JH

Hi Thomas,
can you send me your script for TC Zero Setup?
I'm using your latest public domain screenset, heavily modified for all the functions to be mm/inch, and found, just yesterday, that if the fixed plate is higher than material surface, tool is never reaching material for cutting.

Post by: big-tex on April 21, 2014, 01:10:26 PM
It should be cutting fine calculated offset will be positive #, if plate is below material it will be negative #.
If you refer to verions prior to 3.4 you need to do it using my site to get files.

Hello, Im a newbie to the forum and hope this is the right place to post,
couldnt find anything under search on this issue

im running Big-tex Blue tool setter ver3.4 and just finding my way around it,
all seems good once I got past the - you have to set the tool change position Z or the "initial set up" is going to crash"

the problem im having is that anytime i click a button on any screen it disappears, it will reappear if i refresh the screen (minimize then maximize mach 3)
doesn't do this on the normal mach3 screen
running Windows 10 on an I5 machine, any ideas how to fix this ?
many thanks
example attached (machine coordinates button)

I don't know what happened with Thomas,exchanged a couple of e-mails withhim, but he did not fix his page :(
I've bought his screenset and I know where it is still obtainable, but it would be unfair to share that location.

Send Thomas an e-mail, will provide you his address through PM
