Hi Martin.

the Original screenset is supplied by minitech, I downloaded MachScreen and spruced it up a little.. added some snap crackle and pop as it were ;)

contact Jack Heald at www.minitech.com for this screenset? He may oblige you? I think however quite a few of the functions in the screenset are related to macros written for probing and homing.

but im only vaguely familiar with these things so i speak under correction :)

Those rotary patterns are cool.  I assume they're mostly for jewelry (rings) you guys are doing?

I'd love to get some simple g-code to play with if any of you are willing to post.  I just want to run it through my g-code simulator and play with changing the codes.

Cheers,

BW

Hi Chris.
Thanks for the reply. I didn't consider the option that it might be proprietry, so I'm not going to put them on the spot by asking for a copy - I couldn't face the rejection  :'( .
Shame about that though. I'll give the Aqua screenset a trial run 'cos it's a bit cooler on the eyes than the standard offering.

Thanks again.
Martin.
