Multiple monitor setup
« on: November 20, 2010, 05:33:56 PM »
Hi, could it be possible to set up two monitor with Mach3 if of course I change my video card for dual output.

I would like to have one normally set up for mach3 and the other setup with DRO only.

Make a screen with DRO only that would be display on the second monitor (7in monitor).

I would like to display position and TO GO position.


Jeff

I think this may be getting looked at for the next version of Mach but dont think its possible for this.

You can do this IF you create one screen that has the DROs off to the side and make the total screen so wide that the DROS are split off to the second screen.

But if you want an independant 2nd DRO screen it is like Hood says.

1 to machine and 1 for surfing!

Hey!! this is almost winter here, will have to wait for surfing ;D ;D ;D ;D ;) ;)

Seriously, I tough that it was possible since we can do it pretty easily for drawing and other applications.

Drag what we want to the other screen.

But will have to wait for the next Mach.

Thanks, Jeff

Seriously, you're able to do that with no machining issues?
