Wizard qustion
« on: May 21, 2009, 10:01:22 AM »
Good day,

I'm writing because I would like to know if it is possible to create a wizard program that suits the work I have to do.

Basically I have to grind a roll shaped item. The only thing that would change are the depth of the mark grinded and the space between the marks.

It's a simple program and I would like to know if it is possible to create a wizard to do it, and if so how.

Thanks for your attention

If you are good at VB then it should be easy enough for you to do a wizard. You can make a screen for the wizard with Screen4 or the new screen designer that Klaus has just done.

The Mach2 customization manual explains how to write a wizard.

Thanks for ur answers,

anyway i know nothing about wizard and I'm not goin to make 1.

however I saw on mach3mill that there are many wizard and just wanted to know if there is one where you input these 2 values and the it creates the code.

The value to input would be the depth of the mark I have to do and how many marks I have to do.

The program done would do the following: grind a mark of 1 mm in my circual item, the motor moves a tot. of degrees based on how many marks i have to do and the grind another mark of 1mm and so on.

It's really easy the concept and I would really appreciate if you could tell me if a wizard like this has been made.

Thanks for reading

YES it is called the gear/spline wizard. Tell it how many divisions and how deep to cutt and how far to move. It will generate the code
