Mach3 R3.043.057 turn does not show preview window
« on: January 30, 2012, 12:27:24 PM »
Hello.

Installing Mach3 R3.043.057 does not show anything on the preview window (tool path window). the 056 version works fine.
If any extra debug information is needed, please ask.
Currently I changed back to 056 so that I can continue working, but can install again the 57 if necessary.
Thank you.

Thank you the reply.
Something happens with the new release because I cannot get the tool path working as it should. My screen is custom, and the tool path display is large: 610x711 (maybe this is the issue?).

Please note what I did:
I have installed the standard turn screen, load a file and the tool path works in it.
Without closing mach, I choose my screen set (using load screen), and the tool path also works.
Close Mach
Open Mach with my default screen: No tool path...

Nothing of this happens on the previous release.

More info on this, as it can help to be solved.
The tool path is there, but no visible at first time. I need to pan several times (4 times) to my right. This is, the tool path is on the left side of the window so far away that it is hidden. Un zooming at start also does not help.

My parts begin at Z0 and end up normally at Z-60, so it should not be because the dimension of the parts/tool path. My tool path display is more tall than long, different than the standard one that is more long than tall. This is the only difference that I find comparing the two screens.

So, you are using a custom screen?
See what you get using the stock .lset.
Might be due to the way the display window is set up in your screen. ? ? ?

Yes custom screen.
The standard screen works ok. But the previous version worked ok for my screen also and settings are all the same, so it is not a problem on the lset.

Well, evidently there IS something different in the latest release affecting this as related your screen. Could be deep in the source code. Maybe Brian would know. Maybe the aspect ratio ?
Good luck Filipe,
Russ

I too have a custom screenset and it has a full page toolpath view and again its fine, see screenshot. If you attach your screenset I will load it  and see if the problem happens here.

Hello.
Apparently also the tool position during machining is also missing.
Can you reproduce that?
I also tested with the standard screen and it does not show the "current" tool path during machining. Can it be some configuration that is now needed?
Thank you

Curious to see it also.

sorry about my previous unnecessary questions, I overlooked you post containing those details.
(I'll blame it on my 26Kbps dial-up connection)  ::)  ;D
Thanks,
Russ
