"Graphics" run in preview
« on: January 30, 2009, 10:28:14 AM »
Hello Ron,
 Wondering if a graphics or Dry Run can be added to the preview of wizards? So one can watch program run in the Preview,before posting Gcode, as this would help much if a program has a few wizards. Also it would run offline and NOT move the actual machine.
Thanks,
Troy

In the latest version I have added a gcode window to the preview screen, so now you can see both the code and the path. When I want to watch it run through the code, like when Im testing the order of cuts, I just scroll down the code window, that highlights the tool path with the current line. It seems to me that does the equivalent of the preview.

The preview button on the main screen is a not a VB function its coded into Mach. I cannot get that from a wizard.
