If I understand you correctly the Roadrunner Gcode is larger than your machine.

You'll need to scale it to fit the size of your machine.

View/Load Screen (Drop down to select "Flash Screens(*.swf)")

Load the Scale.swf in Mach

Hey Robert,

Here is a simple Flash wizard I did quickly.

-Download the Scale.swf

-After starting Mach with your screen

-View/Load Screen (Drop down to select "Flash Screens(*.swf)")
And choose the Scale.swf where ever you have it located.

-After loading the Scale.swf Load your Gcode file

-You can either scale to size (Scale width, Scale Length, Scale Height) or Scale To Area (scale all)

After getting the size you want

-View/Load back in your screen

I can enhance this method and add a button to your screen and also a "return to screen" so you dont have to reload or load the flash screen....or if you are using a Flash screen you can find it in the tool box...

Please be careful and always do a slow test run first  ;)

Great thank you  ;D
New one in the works please let me know what you'd like to see.

Let me know if this one works better, I believe there were some issues with the two state buttons that is fixed in this.
I changed all the code over to VB in this one as well. If your interested in the audio files let me know, I have audio response for about every LED and button.

This is just an updated screen for STS

In the Mach Bible Chapter 2.2

....And the almighty Art said: http://www.artsoftcontrols.com/documentation/M3M1_84-A2.pdf

"To run the oh mighty Mach 3 you will need Vista , Windows Xp (or Windows 2000), ideally running on a 1Ghz processor with 1024x768 pixel resolution screen."

The Dell optiplex is a great buy on Ebay, you could get a very fast system includung 17" LCD monitor for around $100-300


Mach Screens / Re: Another screen size question
« on: July 12, 2007, 05:55:33 AM »
The only way I can think of is opening the wizard screen set and modifying them in Screen4,
Set your "Desired Screen Size" to 800X600 and drag and resize things, maybe with the new Jetcam screen set he will add something to aid with this.

Hey Lemo,
I would love to see some of your 3d models...I believe that I can tell from your avatar that you use Z brush, I use it as well and have some good techniques for transferring the ZB model in to CAM/CAD programs.

General Mach Discussion / Re: Homing Z-Axis during G-Code process
« on: July 02, 2007, 02:36:39 PM »
I belive in Mach 2 I had this problem with "Home" button where it would move all the axis at once, so the Z would scrap my part while the X and Y moved.
You can fix this by editing the button

Just what Brett said:

-Go to "operator"
-"Edit button Script"
-and press on the button

for "Ref All Home", this will move X, than Y, than Z, than A, and will wait for them to hit home before doing the next axis:

Add this if it's not there:

DoButton( 24 )
DoButton( 23 )
DoButton( 22 )
DoButton( 25 )

Also as Brett said:

check if you're Z Safty is on:

-"safe Z setup"
-Safe Z and Optional "Goto safe Z when Stop Button is hit"

You might need to create a Flash file in Mach's main directory and check to see that the two EXE's are in it for the Remote connection depending on what vertion of Mach you are using.
The updated Mach should have this already...make syre you are using the latest vertion of Mach

Here are the source file for Sothink and Flash: http://www.artsoftcontrols.com/forum/index.php?action=post;board=36.0

Check out the video "Mach 3 Reloaded": http://www.artsoftcontrols.com/forum/index.php?topic=2571.0

If anything isn't working please provide the correct code or Mach OEM code, what platform your using and machine spec's if needed.
