I think there's a serial version of the gravitech board. As for the USB, it's just a USB-> serial conversion. I really need to upload a new version of the plugin next couple of days.

hello, i have a little promblem. i am trying to configure my gravitech lcd trought macropumb. here is code that i am using.

cnt=getVar(1000)
if cnt=10 then
  setVar(1000, 0)
  SendSerial _
  "?x00?y0" & "S " + Format (Getdro(17) , "0000.00") + "    " & _
  "?x00?y1" & "F " + Format (Getdro(18) , "0000.00") & _
  "?x00?y3" & "T " + Format (Getdro(24) , "0000") & _
  "?x00?y2" & "C " + Format (Getdro(14) , "00:00:00")
else
  setVar(1000, cnt+1)
end if

spindle speed, feedrate and tool number is working fine. but i have problem with elapsed time. on lcd is always "00:00:00". i try to write code without 00:00:00 but then is on lcd only "0".

sorry for my bad english

I got the kit and display from Gravetech and it is all put together.  It works great using a hyperterminal program.  It is set up on Com 5 on my PC.  I have installed the PlugIn and have started Mach3 and enabled the PlugIn and restarted Mach3. After shutting down, I changed the ComPort from -1 to -5 in the XML file with the Artsoft XML reader.  When I run Mach3 again, nothing happens on the display.  I shut down Mach3 and go back to the XML file and it is back to -1.  Please help!
