Newfangled Solutions Mach3 Wizards / Re: V2.79

In the Cut Rectangle there looks like there is a DRO under the depth DRO.
Also the preview does not show the correct amount of passes.But it does show the correct amount of passes in the Mach3 display.
And when doing an inside cut, the selection of a Climb or Conventional cut is backwards.
Do i have a setting wrong?

Ok.I agree with the newwbie set up,and for saftey its not good or standard to have a newbie to learn that Z axis movement is the first.No movement of Z should happen until X & Y are in position.(Safe to say for 95% of typical programs for vertical type mills.).Not trying to nit pick as i truly like the NFS,iam just used to the "protocall" programing done in a job shop, day in day out.And got a few newbies here that iam trying to set up a screen set for,and make as simple as possable but still have a clean fast G code generated, without any adjustment needed to G code.(The Best of ALL worlds :)Is there a way to have somthing in MACH to look at a NFS program that is generated and make it automaticaly convert or change certain lines and code to what ever the user wants?Like some CAM softwares do.
Thanks again

Newfangled Solutions Mach3 Wizards / Pocketing Wizards Fin Pass
« on: August 15, 2008, 07:57:46 AM »
 Is there anything in the works for a optional finish pass for pocketing wizards?And also for Circle mill,Cut Rectangle.
Example...Option to have a Finish pass on sides and depth,or Sides & no fin depth,or viseversa.
Its on our "industrial" mill here and works very nice.

I use tool offsets,but i turn them on with a altered VB on the M6 macros.

Or maybe move the line to be after the X & Y move,would that still effect how the wizards work?
I tried this with a Circle Pocket and works,but the Drill cycles still need to have the line removed and G99 added to the Drill cycle line.
Could there be somthin added to Mach to look for these in a generated G code and automaticaly change them to what the user needs before the code is posted to be run?

Thanks again

Hello, i need my mill to bring Z axis down after X and Y are in postion.
Below is example of a Bolt Circle Program by Mach NFS...

(Code by Newfangled Wizard, 8/13/2008)
(Program Posted for Aluminum )
G0 G49 G40.1 G17
G80 G50 G90 G98 
G20 (Inch)
(***** Circular Hole Pattern *****)
M6 T3
M03 S4000
G00 G43 H3 Z0.2<(Need this removed)
G81(Need G99 added here for drill cycles) X2 Y0 Z-0.3 R0.1 F7.9
 X1.6235 Y0.7818
 X0.7775 Y0.9749
 X0.099 Y0.4339
 X0.099 Y-0.4339
 X0.7775 Y-0.9749
 X1.6235 Y-0.7818
M5 M9

As for milling operation i need Z to come down to ref position AFTER X & Y are in position.
Is there a way to have Mach do this automaticaly?Like with VB or Brain,I dont know. :)

Newfangled Solutions Mach3 Wizards / Multi-Hole wizard Change?

Can you add a Z axis DRO to the Multi-Hole wizard,so if you have holes that need to go to a different depth.And maybe a Reference height for each hole?

Ron,got idea for new "simple" wizard.A Line to Line mill wizard,that would have the option to put a Radius or angle at the end of line. That is similar to the Multi-Hole wizard ,except there would also be a Z axis ,Angle,and Radius DRO to enter.Also the M1 function i asked about in the other post.

Newfangled Solutions Mach3 Wizards / M1 option in NFS wizards
« on: June 24, 2008, 11:10:25 AM »
Hello Ron,
  Wondering if a M1 option could be added to wizards.So the machine would pause after its in position at every hole,or at start of a pocket,or any of the 2 D wizard operations.This would help MUCH when using a 2 axis mill.(X and Y axis).I would help in any testing thats needed. :)

Dont know if this matters,but iam altering the Free 2D Milling Wizard by Olivier and noticed that it will generate a arc using either I and J or R,by using whatever you have the settings in the General Confige,Motion Mode,Distance Mode,and IJ Mode.
Can this be made the same for the Cut Circle NFS wizard?

Hello all,
  When Cut Circle generates G code it does an R instead of I and J,is there a way to change this to I and J?The problem is there is a hesitation at the half way points of the circle.I think Brian was told but am not sure.
