Great start Benny. Looks really impressive. Here is some feedback.

Install went fine.

The files extracted to my c:\mach3\bitmaps\BennyScreen.

Font installed fine.

On first run I had made the taskbar autohide so the screen could be seen 100%

I had errors on :-

 ALL REF HOME button. - Error on line 1. Sub or function not defined: None (*)

ALL SET TO ZERO - Button hides when pressed and does not resume unless page changes

The Dro's will only display 3 digits before decimal point. Does this need to be more ?

The scale access DRO will not display the leading digit if scale is more than 9. Even with scale of 1 the +/_ is almost offscreen.

Edit G-Code does nothing

The font size when looking at program limits on the toolpath display is so small its hard to read. Very.

The DISPLAY MODE button on the toolpath giver the error (*)

Jog increment textbox too small to show all digits.

This is a brilliant start to a screenset that looks impressive. I will add any more problems as they arise.

Great work !!!

(Really jealous as I have been using screen4 for a few days and have nothing like this to show :(

General Mach Discussion / Mach and dual screen usage
« on: March 27, 2006, 05:06:25 AM »
Hi everyone,

Long time lurker of the forum and a big fan.

After reading a post over at the Zone regarding Dual screen usage I thought I'd give it a go. Not a lot else to do over here with this awful weather we are having.....

So here are the results. I suspect they will leave Benny in a state of turmoil as he plans his next screenset !

On a serious note I'm purely an amateur who purchased Mach 2 after building a home cnc and got hooked. The things I cut are basic but I would think that for the pro's out there a multiple monitor setup would be useful. It's quite cheap to do now.

Imagine having various toolpath views etc.... Ok I'm getting carried away....

I tried the new screen 4 designer and selected a new custom screen of some hideous dimension, basicaly 2560*1024 (i.e a 1280*1024 screen doubled)

Screen4 allowed me to design a screen that would cover both windows.

Finally a test to see if Mach 3 would run dragged over a split monitor and it works fine.

Maybe I just have too much time on my hands :)

Very nice feature.

I know some people are not too concerned about the cosmetics of a program but small changes like this to the interface make it (in my opinion) a very professional looking program.

There is still a lot of room for improvement in all of the screens but this is one step in the right direction.

Well done Art on the coding and cheers to Benny for the constant earache. I'm with you on the interface Benny ;)

Many thanks. That clears up my query.

Just need to give it a go soon.


General Mach Discussion / Surfacing Wizard - Mach 3

Hello all,

I have lurked long enough here and really hope this forum format takes off.

I'm hoping for a bit of clarification. I purchased Mach2 and have now moved to Mach3. To be honest I have not done a lot with it as I'm in the process of building another machine. My first machine is limited by table size.

My query is around the surfacing wizard. In Mach2 I had the option to select the units mm/inch. This seems to be missing on the Mach3 version. Unless it's staring me in the face and I'm missing it !

Can someone please clarify this. I'm a metric only person and really struggle with those inches !


Excellent news !

Well done on persevering with the forum. Hopefully now it's under the offical site things should take off.
