Mach3 Screen need for 3axis Lathe
« on: March 20, 2016, 12:31:04 PM »
Hello,

I'm converting 3 axis quick-tech lathe to MACH3 and I really kindly asking anyone to help me or share screen for X Y Z lathe.

I really like IPS screen from this thread.

http://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php/topic,19353.0.html

Is there any chance to ''add'' Y axis to this screen?

Thank you

Best regards

Gasper

Hey BGelektronika. Have you made any progress? I'm looking for the same thing except I'm using a 3axis mill and I want to be able to move the y-axis to set the tool height. I started this thread here which has had a response. You might want to watch it too.

Hey again, I was successful in adding y-axis controls to a custom set of screens for Mach3 Turn. Check my previous link and you can download and try. They work in demo mode in Mach3, but haven't tested on my machine. Your mileage may vary, but seems to do what I needed it to so that I could set the tool height with the y-axis.
