This has to do with the licenses

I also bought the Wizards add-on thing
Where do you put the WizLic.dat file?

General Mach Discussion / My Newb Questions Thread
« on: October 07, 2012, 03:20:45 PM »
I'm hoping I can use this thread to ask all my stupid questions until I learn this stuff.

This one should be simple enough

I see a lot of videos and screen shots of the Mach program filling the monitor, on my 19" it has several inches around the edges and it won't fill the screen. If it's in a window of it's own and I stretch the window the Mach screen doesn't get any larger, and if I click on the square in the upper right of the window to make it full screen and it still doesn't fill the screen. I tried changing the screen resolution/desk top size in Windows several times but it still does the same thing.
What am I missing here?

I'm assuming you got the pic by using my xml?
And that doesn't make sence to me, when I have the scale at 1.0 either the head or feet hang over the display table limits a little, when I put it to .750 it's a little smaller then in the pic.  Well I'm not going to beat my haed against the wall over this, and will look over my settings in the "config/homing & limits" some more to make sure.

Thanks for all your help, and I do feel better that someone else says it looks ok  : )

Belin don't feel bad, I'm kind of in the same boat as you, a newb trying to figure out these programs.  I had to watch the first two or three videos in the support area several times and still don't understand half the stuff that was said, but seeing it done and what happens made it a little easier.
So far I've been able to do the basic setup (to me anyway) and atleast run one of the sample gcodes several times with success.

Your going to have to take it in small steps and once you figure one part out move onto the next, you also need to pay attention to what you need right now and not try to learn everything right away, that's what I was trying to do it just got more confusing the more I read.
I thought I'd be doing some simple machining with mine already but I'm still trying to figure it out.

OK to show how much of a newb I am (or is it noob this time), where is the xml? I went into the Mach3 folder and don't see one, all I see is another folder "xml backup" or "backup xml", if this is where I get it from do I get the one with the largest number after it for the most recent?

Dave,
I tried the copy & paste thing and it still doesn't open? It says something like "Windows cannot find "ftp", if your connected to a network contact the administrator for assistance......"
Being a newbie I'd like to see if this could help me too
