Parameters - how to show the numeric values ??
« on: October 27, 2014, 07:00:42 PM »
How can I show the values of parameters which are being used by the program ??

I am working on a general purpose code to execute a series of moves (G0, G1, G2 or G3) using data from a table - but there is a problem somewhere and I need to know if the correct values are being entered into parameters from the table - but I cannot find in the manual any way to see the values as the program is running.

Any ideas most appreciated - when I have fixed it I will publish here.

There is a Var monitor built into Mach3. Open it and assign whatever #var numbers you need to see. It runs in a seperate window so you can run mach3 and watch the vars at the same time.

I do not have mach3 loaded on this PC but it is in one of the pull down menus on the top of the screen. I think it is in the operator pull down menu.
