Hi, Rick

Post the values for R1 & c1 when you get a chance, Happy it works.

The M05 should turn the Spindle Off, I don't understand exactly what your saying.

If you have a Dual Trace Scope, Look at the input & output Pulses.

With a 10 turn R1, You may be able to tweak for more Speed if needed.

The ability of Mach to have time see the delay pulse & the output pulse  reseting before the next input pulse, Set the Speed Max Limit.

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Art

Sorry about that File, Took a Coffee Brake to load for Me, But it Loaded.

There's a 3 x 4 inch object in there Some Where to cut, It's so small you can't see it at All, Just 2 dashed lines bottom Right of drawing.

I Didn't now it had some Turned Off Layer's, Hadn't loaded it in to a Cad Program. 

File Was from a Friend's company that builds 37' & 47' Trawler's.

The Zoom Button feature zoomed into it Fine.

The double click on the Screed to re-size Fine Also

A couple Thought's Hear.

Could you Add a stasis Bar or % Done showing that LC is Still Active, And a way to Terminate Back to a stable LC if Such a File is Loaded by Mistake

Windows Task Monitor and the top of the LC Window will Show "Not Responding" even though LC is Plugging Along Just Fine.

Thanks, Chip

PS: The Move Origin with Mouse is Working  Wonderfully.

Hi, Art

Hears the DXF File that would load before recent changes in LC ver. 2.0.001.

It Hangs up LC during Load at Duplicate Entity Removal ...

LC Ver. 2.0.003 Has fixed The Move Origin Mouse Move Hear Also, Woooo---Hoooooooo.

Thanks !!, Chip

Hi, Keith

O-------K-------- give it a try, Be nice to now.

Go Get'mmm, Chip

Hi, Keith

The  L in lset changes Mach to X Z view and allows lathe code to load.

I don't really understand why you cant change Mach3Mill screen to X Z View and load a Lathe G-code File.

Maybe some one can explain this.

It's a little bit of a pane to rename .set to .lset in windows Explorer, I use XnView for that.

Thanks, Chip

Hi, All

Thanks for the post work in todays LC update, Art & Brian, Post is a little off I think but a nice step forward.

Seam's to post the Rough portion of code a little long on both end's.

Orientation for start of G-code & return to start point seem unclear/off.

What happened to the return to 0,0 in Post Option ?

Maybe there should be a Start at x,z & Return to X,Z in LC Lathe or Post option's, To allow for clearer setup ?

Thanks & just some Thought's Hear, Chip

Hi, Keith

It's a work in progress screen set I use it for both Mill & lathe,This one is a lathe screen set(lset), So it will run Mach in Lathe Mode.

I find it easier to use more Info. than original Mach3Turn.lset, Trying to get time to add other features to it.

Changed the TAB pop-out for lathe use.

Try'ed to call yesterday about your reset issues I'll try again or give me a call.

Thanks, Chip
