I am in Agreement, Release the software.

Support via this forum will be adequate for most people. As long as you inform people of the fact that there will be limited support,I can't see anyone complaining.

Whatever happened here? I got lost. New to lathe and was looking for better screenset or wizards. Found this and it appears to have just stopped after DaOne said it was ready but he had issues with support. Is that the end of it?

Guys I have not dropped the ball on this. Just been very very busy. I am in talks with Andrew at Machmotion on this. I have been thinking about releasing the screen itself for a small fee because I have has so many requests its overwhelming.

So if the plan was screenset and IPS wizards or whatever they are, will these two run separately from one another? In other words, will I be able to buy the IPS Wizard part without the screenset?

I will be selling the screenset with a few common IPS wizards (OD Turn, Face, OD Threading) The IPS wizards are basically going to be free and a taste of whats coming.  I cant really reveal any more information at this time but it will be even better than it currently is. :) Selling this now is for those who cant wait and really want the screen. I cant tell you how many emails I get asking when this will be ready. You can still run all standard wizards with the screen. This will give you a professional look.

Been a couple weeks again, have you started selling this and if so, how much and what's included in the original release? Plans for more wizards still in the works?

Been nearly two months since any news,  there was a reference to talks with machmotion, so maybe he decided to sell the screenset to them???

Sorry guys I run a business. This isnt what pays the bills. Its more less a hobby. I have also been dealing with family health issues. I have had very little time. I decided not to release/sell it until I have time to finish documentation so I don't get bombarded by questions I dont have time to answer.  I am one person and am spread way too thin. I can say things have been done and it is closer but I hate to give dates and miss them.
