General Mach Discussion / Metric Vs Imperial
« on: November 14, 2006, 03:05:27 PM »
I am a new user and find the way Mach3 handles the units very confusing.  I wish you could switch between metric and imperial without messing with the tuning parameters or better still, when you set a global unit change, the motor tuning parameters would automatically change.  The fact is that I don't mess with motor tuning much.  Once these are set, they don't change that often.
However, I switch frequently from jobs that are metric based to imperial based jobs and vise versa frequently.  When I am in metric, I would like to see everything including the DRO, JOG, home positions, etc. in metric without messing with or restting the motor tuning parameters.  The same when I use the inch unit.
What's the best way of doing this with the current version of Mach3?

Thanks Hood.  You answerd my question.  I was not sure if the icon had any significance or not.  I am also not sure how the diameter wear and height wear parameters are used.   The wear is function of time and material used.

Actually, I found the progrm "AutoHotKey" that let me emulate the mouse middle button with other key combinations.

LazyCam (Beta) / Mouse key re-assignment in Lazycam
« on: October 14, 2006, 10:25:56 AM »
Is there any way to assign another key or mouse/key combination for rotration in Lazycam?  On my laptop I don't have a center button and on my desktop machine  pressing the center wheel does not rotate.
What can I do to rotate in 3d in Lazycam?
Thanks,
Jason
