Mach 3 display screen size
« on: September 21, 2010, 10:40:34 AM »
I am using Mach3 with my laptop to run a cnc router.
Everthing works fine but the display is so small that I cant see what its doing.
Is there a way to increase the size of the picture in the display to make it easier to see?

Good Morning:
I have a screen set that I wrote for Mach3.  It can be either a 3 axis or 4 axis display.  One of the features is a full screen display of the cutting area.  This may be what you are looking for.
You can download the .set files and graphic files from: http://www.mrrace.com/SimpleMill/

Or, you can use the MachScreen program to make changes to your existing screen set.

Thank you for the screen but how do you make it run offline?
I check all my mach3 runs on my home system without a cnc connected to make sure they run ok before I try a actual cutting run.

Hi Vic:
I am not sure what you are asking, about running it off line as Mach3 does that just fine, without a machine attached to your computer.

Maybe you don't understand how to install the screen set, so here is how you do it.

First, download the screen set from my web site:  http://www.mrrace.com/SimpleMill/

Click on the download link to get a copy of simple mill.  Un ZIP the file and simply copy the SimpleMill folder to your Mach3 bitmap directory and copy SimpleMill 3A.set or SimpleMill 4A.set to your Mach3 directory.  Select View from the Mach3 menu and click on SimpleMill 3A.set or SimpleMill 4A.set to load either screen set.

You can now load and run your GCode without any mill attached.

Please let me know if this is what you needed,
Thanks,
George
