General Mach Discussion / My Newb Questions Thread
« on: October 07, 2012, 03:20:45 PM »
I'm hoping I can use this thread to ask all my stupid questions until I learn this stuff.

This one should be simple enough

I see a lot of videos and screen shots of the Mach program filling the monitor, on my 19" it has several inches around the edges and it won't fill the screen. If it's in a window of it's own and I stretch the window the Mach screen doesn't get any larger, and if I click on the square in the upper right of the window to make it full screen and it still doesn't fill the screen. I tried changing the screen resolution/desk top size in Windows several times but it still does the same thing.
What am I missing here?

General Mach Discussion / Table work area question

OK I'm a complete newb so be gentle and don't get to tecnical, I'm still trying to figure this stuff out.

I watch the video on "homing & limits" a couple times and can't figure one part out.
When I load the Road Runner (RR) g-code it's always bigger then what I have set for the table size, when you click on the "display mode" button and it shows the out line of the table and the RR is always hanging over the distance for the Y. Yes I'm hitting the "Regen Toolpath button. Oh my table is roughly 8" x 22"

But what's confusing me is in the video he is showing a table of 100mm x 100mm and the RR is really small in the corner (or where ever he places it). The only way I can keep it within my soft limits is to change my table size in one of the config screens to something like 7" x 12" but even then it fills almost all of the vertiual table top.
So how can you change the size of the RR g-code to make it whatever size I want?
