Ok Gerry,

It does the same thing to me  if the bit map is other than the correct size for the screen and I have the auto screen enlarge checked on the General Config screen.

As I said, may shop computer has a 640x480 10.4" LCD display and with the bitmap sized for that screen it works as you want without wasting space at the bottom when the menu's are turned off.  When the menus are on, the entire screen is moved down by the hieght of the menu line.

I can scend you a couple of pictures off line to show the results if you want them.

OK, here it is, ready for testing. Extract the bitmaps (.png's) to Mach3\bitmaps\DualZ. Extract DualZ.set to the Mach3 folder.

Couple of things.

The LED in the Start button doesn't always work correctly, especially after pausing and stopping.

The second spindle is actually set to spindle CCW, so you can't use both at the same time without changing the button functions.

You'll need to setup Mach3'3 outputs to match what I have here, or you'll need to change button functions.

Spindle 1 is Output #1, assigned to spindle CW
Spindle 2 is Output #2, assigned to spindle CCW
Coolant1 is Output #3, assigned to Mist.
Coolant2 is Output #4, assigned to Flood

For the hide menu to be persistent when closing and restarting, you'll need to turn it off in General Config first.

To change the Park position, edit the button script to your liking, it's just two lines of g-code, but you can add more if you want.

Home all button homes Z first, then X and Y together. Edit button script to change.

Swap axis swaps Z for C.

The Auto Zero buttons need to VB script code. They are not doing anything now.

I don't have any way to check the Home /Limits LED's, since I have no machine right now to test them with. Let me know if they work correctly.

Enjoy.

Edit. It won't let me attach it here for some reason, so here it is, http://tinyurl.com/6867lz

Edit. Fixed link

Gerry,

I just tried the tinyurl and got some sort of comcast error saying the site does not exist.

The X Offset DRO on the settings page was wrong. I fixed it in the zip file. You can change it in Screen4 by right clicking it and setting it to OEM code 47. Or just download it again and copy the .set file.

Also fixed the Run button LED (thanks to Greolt), and changed the axis DRO's to all match (3 decimals).
