Displaying time remaining
« on: March 17, 2011, 01:24:49 PM »
Is there any way to get Mach 3 Mill to display the amount of time remaining in an operation when running a program?  I.e., how long before the program completes?  It seems to me it has all the information necessary to determine this, and, for my purposes anyway, would be a lot more useful than the elapsed time it now displays.  Thanks.

You can take the estimated time and subtract that from the elapsed time, but there are cases in Mach that it will keep counting how much time has passed for e.g. during a feedHold, you could write up some script to replace the Elapse time to get a working remaining time by having it stop counting in such cases.

Looks like it is renamed to Simulate under the "Toopath" screen in 1024.set
