Hood, I tinkered a little with a Picaxe micro controller some time back. Very little actually. It was a similar coding, some form of Basic I guess.
I used the ' to "comment"  lines very often as you do.  ( seems to do the same thing in G code.
Thanks,
RC

Another thing, step thru the program in editor and when yu get the syntax eror, it will highlite the trouble. Also, hoover over the lines with your cursor. THis doesn't work if it is a problem and Mach is trying to run it. Neither does editing the code from the error message pop up I dont think. You have to close the error and po up, then open the script in editor or button editor.

Thanks for the tips.

I'm starting a new thread in LCam forum, from .dwg file to LazyCam to M3Turn.

Thanks Brett,

Brett, Great thread!
I got my game pad and setup keygrabber using the guidelines in the thread. I got most everything working that I need / want.
One question I have is I don't fully understand the difference between the joystick and the buttons on the game pad.
In order to get my jogging rate to change I had to put my X & Y on the buttons. Then I could program another button to increase / decrease the jogging rate. However I'm out of buttons and have the joystick setup for my Z axis. The Z axis works fine, but I can not control my Z jogging speed.
Any thoughts?
Thanks olf20

Thanks for the reply!

determining using keygrabber??

I don't think you can tell in Keygrabber, should say on the game pad somewhere and may have a button to choose analog.

Hi guys.

I put a button on my screenset using Screen4, as you brilliantly described Hood, thanx, but when i paste the vb script I found in an earlier post of this thread, and try to run the script I get the error msg: "Cannot use g53 Incremental"


Am I missing som settings in config here?

And while we are at it, just for fun I tried to load the screenset for Q (as it has the Big tool button on in,that i like) could this actually work?
