General Mach Discussion / Re: My first air cut (Video)

Thanks Graham. Thats exactly what I was looking for. I appreciate your help.
BTW are you still an admin here? Any chance of enabling video embed? I remember the setting is in there.
If videos are embedded from Youtube it wont slow down the forum at all.
Also In slightly confuse with setting up my A axis. If I type "g00 g91 a360" it should spin exactly once?

Im redesigning the jogging screen but need help writing the incremental buttons. I keep getting a mach error message.
Could someone just write me the gcode for one button ? Thanks.

Hey good sir, great to see you are still around too.
Yes you would think that, and I have two flat toothless pulleys for that, but I have noticed that since the belt is driving ball screws it doesnt jump. Reckon you could tow a Volvo with that gantry arrangement before the belt skipped out. Im more concerned at having my nuts caught in the belt and pulley. Guards and redesign still to come.
I appreciate your input. :)

Hey guys, its been 10 years since I had my last CNC machine. I lost all interest at one stage, but there have been certain times I wished I had one to make different ideas.
Ive surprized myself but not going down the steel road, and using ply wood instead. Once I would have looked down on this kind of build, but I think having a saw table has opened my mind as the how accurate I can cut ply. The table and gantry are torsin boxes and super rigid. Anyhow its really great to here the sound of steppers singing after all this time. I nhave a LOT of refindments to make and I was thinking that the machine could make many of the update parts. Its great to be back.

Hey good sir, thanks for the welcome back, good to see you are still around :)
Yes plain and simple, I get it :)
Im more interested in comments on functionality, the back grounds can be changed in seconds.
Im thinking that this function isnt standard, but it would make things easier. Am I overseeing anything with this MPG idea?

Next iteration.....

Works in progress / Benny's new 16:9 screen.

After a 10 year break of CNCing i've just built a new machine. This is my third, and its built a lot better than previous ones.
Anyhow Ive stated a new screen design suited to a 1080 x 1920 Screen.
I thought Id start with the MPG as I might make that one permanent display for the front page.
This will be a work in progress. Im interested in comments don functionality more than if you like the style or not. :)
I thought id redesign the actual MPG from the ground up. I Think Ill also include a MDI within it as well.

Mach Screens / 16:9 Screen
« on: May 23, 2020, 12:26:16 AM »
Hey Brian, is there any chance of shoehorning in the ability for Mach 3/4 to display vector images. Something like SVG would be great.
The advantage is that any screen designed would be scaleable without losing image quality. The raster images are looking quite dated and pixelated by today's standards
Im noticing that most screens designed are the old 4:3 aspect ratio.
Im in the process of making a  free 16:9 screen, something more suitable to current day monitors. Something that takes better advantage of modern monitor real-estate.
Thanks for considering my request.
Regards Benny

Feature Requests / Re: Mach4 constant jerk S curve motion planning

Hey good sir, great to see you are still on here.
Seems like a lot has changed over the years. Im utterly confused as to what software, motion card, etc to use.
Even the advent of of arduino CNC is quite amazing.
"Auggie" Oh yeah, I had quite forgot about that. Do many people use it?

Ive had a change of heart towards wood. Normally I was a steel and aluminium man but my new machine is torsion box ply. I'm loving the eas of the build, the lightness etc.
Is Art still actively programming?

Im really interested that you consider moving from Tinyg to Mach4 an improvement when you are losing the jerk motion planner. Why do you feel Mach4 is an improvement?
Im getting back into CNC after 10 plus years and as much as I love Mach, I'm highly considering Tinyg just because of the s jerk planner.
