Graham,

Thanks.  It is exactly what I was hoping existed to get the tool info.

What is the best source for the complete list of VB functions?

Ron,

A few other things that would be helpful and/or minor bugs:

+ Can the tool diameter be pulled up automatically from the tool table when the tool number is entered (rather than having to type it in)?
+ the "traverse height" on the circular hole pattern screen sets to 100.00 each time I open the screen instead of remembering the last setting
+ after I use the circular hole pattern operation and change the traverse height as in the previous bullet above, the "feed % override" in the "tool properties" screen defaults to 1% instead of 100%

Hope my input is seen as constructive.

Pat

Ron,

Is this included in the next upgrade or is it not doable?

Thanks Ron,  I was confident that you were aware of the problem and would modify  for the next release.

These wizards are great.  The whole process is well thought out and I find them very useful.  Thanks for a great product.

Can you publish an list of the fixed you are working on at this time.  That way I can compare the few nigly items I have noticed in the program that I was going to report to you and not bother you with them if you are already working on them.

Mike,
Yes.  I have the PCNC 1100 with Mach 3.  The NFSwizard is the only one I hqve found so far with the problem.  I have a work around if you are interested but I'd rather see NFS fix the problem in the code.  It is the paths hard coded into the program that want to get files from the Mach3 folder that is called PCNC3 in the installation of the PCNC 1100 software.

I am using the PCNC mill with Mach 3 software and just purchase the NFS WIzards.  It won't run properly because it is looking for files in the Mach3 folder and the PCNC uses "PCNC3" insyead of "Mach3" for the folder name.  I have done a psuedo workaround but it is not very clean.

Can you make the program capable of handling the different path .....maybe by allowing it to be entered in the "Initialiazation" file?

Thanks,
Pat

Can the program be written to get my tool diameter automatically from the entries in my Tool Table Data when I type in a tool # in the NFW screen?

Thanks,
Pat

I am new to Mach and am trying to figure out how to create/modify wizards. My machine uses Mach2 and the only screen designer I could find to download is the Screen4 program.  I downloaded the program, unzipped it into the Mach2 folder, and am able to open existing wizards from the Addons folders.  When I click any of the command buttons, I get an error saying "Text file for function calls missing...please reinstall".  I am a VB programmer so I am not worried about about being able to write the programs once I figure out how to get the programs working together.  Am I using the wrong screen edit/create program?

Thanks for your help.
