Hi Tapio

I meant the numbers in the red geditor square.
I am guessing that the issue is with win7, I will spend a bit more time on it this weekend.
Thanks for your help.

Hi Tapio
I have just downloaded your GEditor, but am having a little trouble getting it to work.  When I first start GEditor and start modifying the gspot.txt file I can see the two sets of numbers on the red geditor square, but these numbers don't change when I start clicking different controls, ie MDI and DRO's.  Any ideas on how to get this to work.  I am using win7.

Thanks for your help

Mach Screens / Loading/selecting gcode files
« on: April 17, 2013, 07:14:37 AM »
Hi Guys
I am starting to write a new screen for a touchscreen, and I am try to work out something that has been bugging me for some time.
I am wanting to be able to have a screen where I can display all the gcode files in a certain folder, then using a pair of buttons (up and down) be able to scroll through the programs and then select the one I want. I am trying to get away from the dialog box that opens up to choose a program from.
Has anyone done something like this??? if so how.  I did find a flash based screen that can do this, but I really don't want to use flash.

Thanks
Andrew

General Mach Discussion / MPG troubles
« on: May 23, 2011, 02:48:06 AM »
Hi Guys,

I am hoping someone can help me here.  I have a 3 axis mill which has a KFlop/Kanalog combo.  I am now trying to hook an mpg up to it via a modio board.  But for the life of me I cant get the mpg to work.  I have mpg1 in mach configured to port 0 and pins 6&7 for A&B of the mpg, I have proved that the comms are working correctly by assigning inputs 1 and 2 to the same port pin combo, and I can see the leds flash on the diagnostics screen.  I have selected mpg mode from the jog tab.
Has anyone got any suggestions to get this beast working?

Regards
Andrew

Hi Ian

I was hacking around with the macro a bit yesterday.  The trouble I have is how to pass the text that I want engraved to the macro.  If you try and use the parameters (P,Q or R) these only accept a double value, so what I did was assign a two digit number to each letter ie A becomes 01 all the way through to Z = 26, I then convert this to a base 6 (senary) binary and then back to a double, In this way If I use all three parameters, I can achieve the number of letters I need to engrave ......... this works ok for me, and it is producing the correct gcode, BUT it isn't very neat.....

 Any thoughts on a better way to send the text string to the macro.

Hi Ian,

At the moment I always program the text at 0,0,0 and have a work offset just for the engraving.  Yes, my font is a monotype style.  No I always start the font at the same point (0,0,0) irrespective of the length of the text.

Regards
Andrew
