I use Screen2010, and sometimes I write short G-code on it.
But, the written G-code has to be saved once with a file name, then you have to open it.

So that, if you make a file beforehand with some wards, you load it and call editor from the screen.
Screen2010 has an icon to call the text editor.
I do not know if 1024set can call the text editor from the screen.

By this way, you can see immediately what will happen when you add or alter G-code.

I hope I do not guess wrong ...

I have bought it today. It works well  :D
Screen design (functions) may be limited due to the space of iPhone screen, however, I would like to ask you to add other functions like;
 - Jog speed % up/down (now only the step is changeable in one-way)
 - Go to safe Z
 - Park position
(I have written these as a customer review in iTunes)

Thanks in advance for your further update  ;)


Finished Screens / Re: Mach3 2010 Screenset - Now available
« on: June 11, 2012, 08:59:34 AM »
I have installed the screen2010 (from last August) and very happy to run my machine with its big tool path display.
Recently, I try to get signal of actual spindle revolution. As a test, I have assigned INDEX input to PIN#15.
It could be shown on screen 1024 by "Emulated" with a hotkey.

My question is;
 Is there any way to display the actual RPM on the screen2010 ?

"RPM" display on the screen2010 is the value of M3 command (e.g. 6000 from M3 S6000), not the actual. Is this correct ?

Thanks in advance for your kind help/assistance.

Hood is correct.

I have tested a long program (ca. 110,000 lines) with and without watchdog.
If watchdog is unchecked on the general config, machine runs through without any trouble.

Also I could see an error message "Driver Watchdog Triggered" on the screen if the watchdog is checked.
When my trouble had occurred I was in a panic and could not notice the error message. See attachment.

Thank you all

Thanks gentlemen for your quick posts.

I will check the setup of PVC tomorrow, it is time to sleep in Japan.

By the way, lothophane is very interesting.
The software is priced reasonable, I would say it is unbelievable cheap.

I have recently purchased "PhotoVCarve" software and started to get into lithophane world !
After some trials, I have started a program generated by the software which is expected to finish in about 5 hours.
I have been checking the machine every 30 to 40 minutes, and found the machine is stopped near to the end  :o!!!!
On the Mach3 screen (I use 2010 screen), red RESET button is blinking.
(at this moment, I didn't check the line number)
I pressed restart button timidly, the reset button turns green.
And press "Cycle Start" button, the machine moves properly until the end  :D
Afterward, I check the program and find the number of Gcode lines is more than 100,000.
Actually the line number starts from N20, and after N999990, next line is N0 as pasted below;
Final line of the files is "N13650M30".

I'm not sure the machine is stopped between N999990 and N0.
It is not a serious trouble, but not good for my heart ....

Is there any limit about number of lines ??

Thanks for any suggestions.

LazyCam (Beta) / Re: Make multiple holes on a part

Correction ...

I did try again carefully to make offsets of multiple holes with "Sel in Box", and the result was acceptable !

There were 26 holes of 3 different diameters. One hole had no cut data (just a circle  :o) even though "Set All Layers" was done.
However, it was easy to check on display and could correct quickly.

Thank you Rich,
I'd like to bore holes in actual diameter.  I have not necessary sizes of drill for the milling machine (original design).
However these are pilot or guide, actual diameter prevents to use wrong drill at later drilling job.

I did try to use "Sel in Box" making offsets for multiple holes of same diameter, but it is not completed properly.
Offset of some holes within the selection are generated, but one or two of them are not.

Finally I will use "Circle" wizard for the time being.
It works rather quickly defining X and Y for same size holes once the diameter and corresponding parameters are set.

I'm using LazyCam and NFS wizard for my milling operation. I love them  :D
Now, I'd like to make multiple holes on a part with end-mill.
For example, I need 4x 2.5mm holes (for M3 threading) and 6x 4.3mm holes (for M4 bolt).
These may be 2 to 3mm deep to make threads or bolt holes by a drilling machine afterward.
There is a wizard to make multiple holes by drilling ("Multiple hole position" on NFS),  however, I'd like to bore them in actual diameter to guide appropriate drills stably at later drilling.
I know I can do it if the"Cut circle" wizard is used repeatedly, also it can be by offset operation in LazyCam.
Is there any way to designate all holes at a time (at least, same holes at a time) ?  Please let me have your idea.

Hi all,

My name is Bon, from Osaka Japan. I am building a original table-top NC milling machine from May, 2010.
At first, the machine was build with wood, and cut its own parts with aluminum material and replace one by one.
Then, with these parts, make same parts with better accuracy were made .... its like a history of machine tools I had studied in school.
The machine is almost completed and improving its accuracy and rigidity.
Working area : X450, Y170, Z60

Parts are designed with CADintosh on my Macintosh. For the machine I bought a second-hand Windows PC.
Drawing data (DXF) is transferred by USB memory.
This is very primitive way, but I don't like to connect the windows PC to network.

TurboCNC has been used at the beginning with G-code input manually. However, writing codes is a boring job.
So that I have started to study Mach3+LazyCam, and licensed these recently.  New world is opened Now !
I'm still reading these manuals, and forum articles too.

Thank you  :)
