He said WHAT??? I will take me a while to work this one out(;-).


Now the next idea I had was to be able to RUN the old DXFImporter that was in mach1/2 for use with plasma . It was simple and to the point. IF it could be ran it would help simply the plasma process.

Just a thought, (;-) TP

Ian "that's the ticket" :')

I just cleaned this section, for my analness (is that really a word, lol)

  MsgBox "File has been set to line #: " & thisLine-1 & Chr(13) & Chr(10) & _
         "which is your next toolchange position." & Chr(13) & Chr(10) & _
         "Your previous line # was: " & currentLine

Your the "VB Man"
Thanks again.

;D When an engineer polishes out the tool marks on a milled engine block they're congratulated for their attention to detail.
When a luthier (Brett click here) brings a guitar to a highly polished finish they're congratulated for their craftmanship.
When a coder (spit!) finesses their work they're anal. "WTF - it works - well kinda anyway - who cares?"

Ah well - 'tis our lot. ;D

GUYS forget the idea for a MACH3 DXF importer (;-) HECK we have SheetCam what more could I want. I don't even know how that got put on my list of things to do. I think my daughter (a crackerjack metal artist and plasma cutter) has been adding to my list AGAIN.

Programmers  what are you to do with them??? ,

Thanks Guys, (;-) TP
