Hello

In the shapes wizzard when i try to input a cutter diameter of .125 it only rounds it up to .13 is there a way to change it so it accept a 3 digit number

thank you for your time

Hi Marcel,
  The value that you enter is valid and accurate even though the DRO only shows 2 decimal places.
But if you want to change it, open the .set with Screen4 from the Mach3 folder/addons/shapes, double click the DRO and change the 2 to 4 (%+.4f)

... or,  %+.3f  for 3 decimal places.

That was fast

So if i input .1875 the program will use .1875 and put .19 in the box.

Thank you for your time

Hey Marcel, I want to experiment with this a bit to be sure. I know I saw this before in another wizard but better check this one for sure.
I don't want to mis inform you.
You might have to change it as I mentioned earlier.

I'm not so sure about this one Marcel.
Whatever I seem to do, the final code produced is rounded to 2 decimal places.
Probably well suited for metric ops, not so good for INCH.
I'll stand by for a possible solution.
Proceed with caution.
Sorry,
Russ
