Its not dead, just taking a lot longer to do the total rewrite than was anticipated ;)

 I have changed Mach3's Gcode interpreter to output all moves
in machine position .


Does this mean that we'll no longer be able to jog to position, zero all and run a program?  If that's the case, how do you jog to position on the sheet and run the program from there? Something we do every day in plasma cutting as we're rarely working with full sheets.

I am presuming this is internal to the way Mach looks at its and works out its  position, you can still offset no problem :)

At least you didn't say "a little" :D
Is there any cautious estimate about the release?

OK, thank you anyway

Seems like i will have to look for another software, because i'd need G41/42 AND G68 in one program :(
If the smoothstepper would work correctly i could use my CAM-System on the control-pc for doing the offset, but it seems like the SS has it's own bugs again.
The machine is very heavy and fast, so there's not much error-tolerance

My wife would say: Same sh**, different day^^
