2 Decimals DRO ?
« on: February 10, 2006, 04:33:05 PM »
Hello all,
On Mach3 V1.90.07 Can somebody tell me how to remove 2 decimals on all the DRO? 
On a machine in decimal read 0.0001mm is not realistic!  I would like to read 0.01mm I tested %+.2f format string with Screen4  but the DRO do not function any more after the modification!
Another way ?

Thanks for your help  :)
Francis

Try this :)
%+.2f


If you need to have NO +- you can use this %.2f

Hope that helps

Brian,

typo sorry, I just changed the "4" by "2" and left the other characters %+.4f becomes %+.2f it is all
With new screen in mach3 the display is +0.00 but the display is blocked to +0.00 when I jog  ???

After some tests when a DRO's modified with Screen4 it does not work anymore next even while giving it like as before

Thank you  :)
Francis

PS: I hope that you have not any neighbors, your dog is ferocious  ;D
