2.83 ready
« on: March 22, 2009, 09:16:22 AM »
I fixed a couple more issues related to the new cutter comp, and a couple related to the use of tool zero and not putting the tool change info in code correctly.

As usual Ill post this here, I hope some of you try it and let me know of any errors. If no problems are found in a couple weeks Ill pass it to Brian to include in the release mach kit.

Update: I just replaced V2.83 with a very minor change.  The original still put the comment in the code that said v2.82. I wont change the v number for so minor a fix, but the code is changed as of  this edit

Ron,

Will there be a separate version for the Tormach mill?

No, not needed now. I fixed that in 2.82 so that the wizard figures out the path name.

Ron

Have not had a chance to run any wizards yet but one small thing you might want to fix.

The position of the Inch/MM LEDs which "show on all screens" conflicts with some of the other graphics.

Most notably the electrical shapes page and less so the choose operation page.

Pedantic I know.  ;D ;D ;D

Ron,
Should MACH VER 3.043.00 be installed before using 283 version???
I'm workring my way up the ladder to 3.043 but seem to keep missing a
wrung on the ladder trying to get there.  ;)

I know about the inch/mm LEDs, its the best I could do since I added them on after all the screens were designed.

The mach version should not matter, as long as its fairly recent- the last year is probably OK. What I fixed for the comp moves was to always make a linear move for the comp exit. That was always OK, after the recent fix its mandatory. So the wizard generated code will run with the old comp fine.

A very minor issue.  When posting the code the second line is:

(Version 2.82)

I just want to make sure I am using version 2.83.  The program indicates V2.83.

Another issue.  When changing screens, sometimes the last DRO edited shows up behind the current screen.

That must be some kind of processor or graphics card issue. Nothing in VB or wizards has any control over the display updating. Are you running on a very slow cpu?
