So, save the M5 and M6 eliminate N284-N288...?

Yes, you don't need N284, N286 or N288.

With the auto zero during the toolchange, you also won't need N294, which is a tool length offset.

Anyone know how to modify that information in the post?

I'm using MPFAN.pst in MasterCam.. I made some modifications but I'm not 100% on the sections you've identified.

Never used MC, but if I had to guess, I'd say to change "force_wcs" to no.

Thanks Gerry, that got me close enough to resolve the issue I was having.

Hello Gerry,

What do you think, will your nice screenset with the large toolpath work well on an old laptop, IBM Thinkpad T42 with 1.6 GHz Pentium Mobile and ATI Radeon 9000 64 MB graphics?

Paul.

I have no idea.
In 4 years, I've had 2 or 3 users (that I'm aware of) that had PC's where the larger toolpath caused mach3 to run poorly.
If you purchase it and it doesn't work, I'll give you a refund.

Hi Gerry,
Just built my CNC and am getting it zeroed in. Love you screenset.
Probing works great.
How do I get to axix calibration from your screenset. As it is now I have to switch to the standard set in order to calibrate.

Thanks
George M

That's how you have to do it. Since you should only have to use it one time, I didn't add it to the screenset. And it only takes 5 seconds to change back.
