Virtual Pendant / Jog Steps
« on: April 21, 2011, 08:16:33 AM »
Is there a way to bring up the Virtual Pendant  or to change Jog Increments / Continious without using the keyboard?  Hopefully something using the mouse?  Thx...

Hi Jim,
 You can put this button on your screen with Screen4 which will bring up the pendant when clicked.
This works well on mine.

Quite easy. You dont need to do a complete screen, just open the screen that you use with Screen4 (dwnlds section), place the button where you want it, then assign the OEM code to it. There are tut. videos but I have not watched them. Connection way too slow here.

Are you using the standard screen set ?
Mill or Turn ?
Which page would you want the button on ?

Here is where I put it on the Mill screen.
The screen set is attached if you want to try it.
Just put it in the Mach3 folder, then start Mach, click the View tab, select Load screens, then select 1024 Pendant.
Good luck Jim,
Russ
