General Mach Discussion / trouble with wizards -
« on: June 04, 2006, 11:55:20 AM »

the following are some of my observations and troubles with a couple of the wizards -
the OD groove wizard crashed M3 on two systems -
one has v84.000 and the other 001
one time it crashed so badly on the brand new system that I got with my Sherline lathe, that I couldn't even reboot.  It left a process running that I could not quit from the task manager.  Tried to reboot - but then it would not close down I guess because of the M3 process that would not unload.  Had to reset the system.  Hate to do that to Windows.
The id arc seems to want to cut into -X by .1" -- I went over that one a dozen times trying to figure out why it wouldn't work like I thought it should.  Reset home and x/z 0 several times - still goes negative -- even the code says -X.1??"

any help out there?  Suggestions?  Work Around?

thanks -
