Yeah, but I can't get it to work. I checked the standard screen and another one, and I set mine up the same way, but it doesn't seem to work for me. Would you mind checking it on your end?



I think I finished up the layout of the second screen. I have a spare button in the bottom left corner. Any suggestions?

Gerry,

The run from here is working perfectly for me, wonder what the issue is for you. What's it doing for you?

As for the extra button, how about making it smaller and then adding an LED and small dro (thickness for touchplate) for the touch plate macro set up?

It doesn't seem to do anything here. I'll try it on my laptop tomorrow and see if it works there. But if it's working for you, that's fine. At least I know it works.

As for the button, I already have the Auto zero button (same thing). As for the DRO, I figured that, how many people would actually use different plate thicknesses? It's simple to just change the thickness in the macro and leave it. I do appreciate the suggestion, though.

And thanks for checking things out. :)

I'm going to remove most of the LED's and replace them with the two state buttons I'm using. This will give it a more consistent look. I think the only LED's I'll need are the MPG axis selections and modes. I'll redo those as well to look a little better. I'll try to get it all done by tomorrow and post a working version minus the settings screen and wizards.

Ok, then maybe you could have the button do what I used my "leftover" button for  ;D

Beta Version
« Reply #55 on: January 17, 2009, 11:49:51 AM »
Here's a usable version for testing.

Unzip all the .png's to Mach3\bitmaps\R2\

Place Spindle OR LED.brn in Mach3\Brains\

Put R2.set in Mach3 folder.

Spindle Override
The brain is needed so the spindle override can match the FRO, because Mach didn't have a native spindle override LED. In order for it to work correctly, if you have no spindle, you may need to set a spindle speed in the initialization string, and set the pulley 1 max and min speeds.

Note: Make sure to enable the brain.

I haven't gotten to the built in wizards yet, and they'll be a while. Also, the settings screen isn't done yet. Actually haven't started them yet. I think I have between 40-60 hours in this so far.

The only thing I'll probably change on these screens are the few remaining LED's for MPG selections.

Got a suggestion to make it appear that the wizards all load where the toolpath screen is. By making a bunch of duplicate screens, each with their own wizard, I think I can give the appearance of having only two screens, but actually have 6 or 7. I'll know better in a few days if it'll work OK.

I redid the whole design from scratch. And used Overloaded's name, Aqua. :) Here's a (hopefully) usable beta.

http://tinyurl.com/ak8q2z

Auqa.set goes in the Mach3 folder.

.png's need to go in \Mach3\bitmaps\Aqua\

For the spindle override LED to work correctly:

Spindle OR LED.brn needs to go in \Mach3\brains\

Under the Operator menu, go to Brain Control and enable it.

This is the only way I could think of to get it to work like the FRO does.
Note: Occasionally, I've the reset spindle LED lit when starting mach3, but no spindle OR applied. If you move the slider and reset, it sems to work fine after that. I'll look into this further down the road.

Most things work, but not the tool change position buttons.

Let me know if there are any problems, or if there are any suggestions.
