Yes I am using a smooth stepper. I don't have time right now to upload the file because I am on my way out the door. Does the smooth stepper plugin disable this function?
Thanks! Andy

General Mach Discussion / Feedrate Overide
« on: February 14, 2009, 03:54:17 PM »
I am hoping someone can tell me what setting is causing me problems. I am running Mach on two machines. On one machine I cannot get the feedrate override to go up. It will go down just fine. I have looked at every setting in the configuration screens but can't seem to find the problem. I noticed the problem first on an older version and it seems to be persistent into the latest version. I'm sure it's something in my xml file but I can't locate it. Thanks for any help.

I'll give it a try if I have time this afternoon Gerry.
 If you select  "run from here" the machine immediately takes off from the current line in the Gcode window. "Set next line" just queues it up. Then you will need to hit the run/start button. The reverse button is probably most useful for plasma machines. It will trace back over the toolpath in the opposite direction. I modified my Goto Zero button to only affect the x and y. I don't like the idea of my machine rapiding down to the top of the stock. Makes my butt pucker....

It looks like a nice screenset. Now finish it so you can go back to work on your router.
BTW...5 years seems like a long time to build a machine ;D
I built mine last winter. It was a fun build. I never really needed a router but I wanted one. I've done more work for my friends with it than for myself.
Here is a youtube video of it.

What kind of problems are you having with the transparent buttons?
One thing I found out is that Mach doesn't like a Persistent Image Button. I had to recreate all the buttons on each screen so that they were unique to each screen.
You wrote in an earlier post that you work at the 1024 resolution in screen4. Do you then scale it up to the higher resolution? Do you scale things down in the lower resolution. It sounds like a lot of work.
I designed all mine at the 1280 res. It was a pain.

Gerry,
I see you have retained the scale buttons. I have always wondered who uses those. I can't see how they would be of much use on a mill. Do you perhaps run a plasma cutter?

It looks very nice Gerry. Very readable. Mine leans to the very busy side. But I want everything on one screen :D
Where are your DROs and how do you zero an axis from this screen?
Screen4 sure is a pleasure to use isn't it? ::)   Having done a little of this now I appreciate how much work it really is.....and how frustrating it can get. I know I have had to solve many problems with the software to end up where I have. It is definitely a pleasure to have the wizards built into the screenset. Way,way faster way to work.

For those of you who downloaded the Eye Candy screenset I apologize. I left out the needed .set file. I have modified my previous post to include it now. But here is the missing "eye candy.set " file by itself.

OK Scott,
 That might just speed things up.
