Mach Screens / Gauges
« on: May 20, 2006, 05:36:36 AM »
Thought I'd share an idea about using gauges with the other screen designers.

The gauge can illuminate diffrent color hues depending on a on/off state,
they can also have a needle that can switch to display on/off.
I am also intrested in using gauges to display speed/feed like a car speedometer as well.

The screen that incorporates this idea will be ready in a few weeks to a month along with two others(I currently have a big project that I must finish within the next few weeks, so I have little time to work on the new screens as of now :-\).

Mach Screens / LED Animation Test
« on: May 05, 2006, 06:13:39 PM »
I'm working on a Universal Mach Screen that will have no texts just icons. This might help with the language translation problems.

While putting it together I thought it might be nice to animate the visual descriptions to avoid any confutations on what the buttons, fields or LED's where representing.

I included a simple sample of a hammer hitting a nail and a twisting green thing (they both will animate once the E-stop is activated).

I was wondering if this is a good idea and is it possible to have more than two states in a "LED button", giving an animation of an "on" state and another animation of an "off" state coming from the same "LED button".

Please tell me if I'm uploading too many files to Artsofts server, I'm not sure If you want me posting these test files to explain an idea or not?
Thanks

                     -Animation Test file-
If you have downloaded the 3 Axis simple screen setup 1.0 and would like to see the test animation:

1. Place LED animation folder in: Mach 3\Bitmaps\Touch screen

2. Place Set file in Mach 3 main folder.

*I have remove buttons to display Animation.
This is an add on to 3 Axis Simple Screen 1.0 to test animation only.

Screen set:   -Simple setup-        Great for Touch Screens

This screen is design for a 3 Axis mill.

The entire screen can be moved around.
I made this screen using all PNG layers, I found that Mach3 seems to responed better and later I can change the size or move everthing around.

The menus / Tabs are setup to start from left to right.
You can have someone running your CNC within minutes using this screen setup.

Tab "Load G-Code"
1. Load G-code (edit modify)

Tab "Material"
2. Set material and zero Axis

Tab "Tool path"
3. Get a good look

Tab "Run Program"
4. Start cutting

Tab "Diagnostics"
Check error- setup



 ???Known Issues with 1.0 >:(

1. When "jog mode" is turned off the "On screen buttons" WILL STILL JOG ALL AXIS!

2. "Edit G-code" button will not open a text editor (nor can I get it to work in Mach3 screen set) might be my own computer set up. Might work for you.

3. The "LED buttons" are not align properly, doesn’t effect functionality just looks sloppy, will fix in the final version.

Please feel free to give comments, add, modify and re upload this setup.

*Feel free to use any of the images, please give recognition.

 ;DWill update this one and I have two other screen set ready soon.   

You can dowload the screen from here

Mach Screens / Oem/VB- "Ref Home" & Numeric Key pad?
« on: April 26, 2006, 04:43:07 AM »
Question:

1.- When I use the OEM code for "Ref Home", the machine zero's all Axis at once. What is the proper OEM code/or what is the VB script function. I noticed that Mach3 has a VB script function for "Ref Home" but could not find the VB code. Any one got it?

2. How would you go about creating an on "screen numeric key pad" to enter field in Mach 3? Or has any one already made one for Mach 3?

Thanks for any help- Zealouse

Mach Screens / Touch screen Jog window
« on: April 16, 2006, 03:42:14 PM »
Hi, I was wondering if any one has or will create an additional screen in Mach2/3 for jogging with a touch screen monitor.
Being able to just use a monitor would simplify things.

The idea would be:
1. A screen with big buttons to controll the "jog mode" between "step and cont."
2. Being able to control the "cycle jog steps"
3. Turning the "jog mode" on or off.
4. Big arrows to move the machine in X,Y,Z,A
5. A key pad to enter numbers in the "step jog mode" Fields
6.Zeroing out X,Y,Z,A
It would be nice to keep Mach2/3 the way they are and add a tab for "touch Screen"
Would any one be able to create this? Would it be useful to anyone?
