some little annoying issues
« on: June 07, 2009, 04:24:33 AM »
Just bought the Newfangled Solution Wizard.
I'm very pleased with it, but I have some annoying things:

First of all, each time I genereted the GCode and go the the mach run screen, the system is in reset. I whave to click the reset button to get it out of reset.
WHy is that? Can I avoid this?

Second, when used some of the NFS wizards and when I want to return to the Wizard to make an change (go last used Wizard), I have to click thru all selection menus again before getting at the last used Wizard.
I would like to return the the laters used Wizard immediately.

Third. I read somewhere here in the forum that a Z-start parameter for the hole drill wizard(s) would be added soon (in a few days). That was in februari and but there is no such parameter yet.
Or do I have to uload some upgrade?

I hope a lot of usefull Wizard will be added in the near future!!!

The reset is happening because the screen update time is long enough to trip t0eh watchdog timer in Mach. It happens on slower machines and large screen sets like the NFS wizards. You can turn off the 'use watchdog' in the config page, or get a faster machine.

Thats how the wizards are programmed, always going through the material select and tool select. No real way to change that. For a single screen wizard the "run last wizard" button is more useful.

The Zstart or Ztop issue is one tha tis oftem discussed, but since the current way it works is burried in many screens its just to big a change to make. It would impact every screen of the set.
