Tool path display
« on: July 28, 2011, 09:28:50 AM »
Hi everyone, after searching the forum I am bewildered that I can not find any reference in being able to rotate the tool path display window so it correspondences to my table. On all screens the tool display screen seems to show the x, y & z axis in the bottom left hand corner with the y being the vertical. I would like to have the axis symbol up in the left hand top corner with the x axis arrow being vertical & pointing down, any help for a very tired & sore eyed member please?  :o

Afraid you cant, Mach adheres to convention so lower left corner would be X and Y zero (Machine Coords)

Hi Hood and thanks for the quick reply. Does that mean even the screensets created would need to conform to this rule? Thanks again  :)

Not quite sure what you are meaning but if its rotating the toolpath view if you make a new screenset, then no you cant do that either.
