3 Axis mill with ATC
« on: January 28, 2017, 02:09:38 PM »
Here is the recently updated screenset for my 3 Axis Mill.  The Offsets screen should really be in 'Work in Progress' but thought I'd share it here.

I have to add a few bits to this screen but quite pleased with the results.

Very nice work.

Just a thought...
The Emergency Stop may be a bit misleading to the inexperienced as a software polled EStop should never be relied on in an Emergency. The only true 'Emergency Stop' physically disconnects power to all parts of the machine (and if applicable automatically applies any brakes, locks, etc.).

Point taken!  However, I don't think I've ever used the button as an actual e-stop in an emergency.  Merely for
resetting.  I have a physical e-stop next to the machine.

Very nice looking machine as well - I think you have a set-up to be proud of there.

(Perhaps rename the on-screen button RESET ?  ;) )

It needs a Reset, Cycle Start, Pause, Stop large buttons easy to see, and the Loading Code and etc does not need to be taking up so much screen.

Thanks.  This screen has now been replaced with a much neater version.  I'll show the new version in the next few days.  I'm also considering making the
set available for a small fee.  This will include all the relevant .psd files and images.
