Hii All
Am following the 6 axis screen topic with interest as I need a good working one for my 5 axis mill , firstly how do you make a screen is there a tutorial or document to explain the procedure and i notice on the 'Darc' download screen the manual jog panel only has 4 axis displayed. I would like to fix a few of these things myself just need the how to document.

There are tutorials in the Support > Tutorial Videos section. Look for the Screen 4 video(s).

You need to setup the motor ports and pins before the DRO's will show any movement.

Hello,

I have the same problem as Jimalo has. Not sure why though. All the buttons appear to be working when clicked upon, they are just not visible.
I have downloaded the latest GPU drivers as that was my first idea but this did not help.
Also once I changed the PC screen resolution and the icons appeared but was unable to replicate this :(
I am attaching the screenshot of the Mach3 screen.

Any help is appreciated.
Thank you.

BR,
Hydrant

When you download and install a new screen you also need to copy it's associated graphics to the Mach3 Bitmaps folder.

Hello Tweakie,

Oh, thank you. That worked.
First time I copied it to wrong folder apparently.

Thank you very much for your help.
