On the cheap MPG workaround?
« on: December 14, 2018, 01:15:01 PM »
 I find myself using mouse move quite a bit as a beginner to position the spindle mostly for engraving in M4 hobby. I use a wireless mouse and a piece of known shim stock to position the Z axis with mouse move set to 0.001 resolution. Not quite a MPG...but it helps a lot since the computer is like 3’ away from the CNC chassis. Then I had the idea if the mouse move screen were like 3X bigger, and had buttons for 0.001, 0.01 and 0.1”, resolution, it would function like a quick-and-dirty MPG I could easily see. As a member of the approaching senior set, large is better when it comes to viewing screens. With a button in the window for the probe, one could even use it to find positions directly if using metal. I opened the lua for the mouse move wizard and did not see anything obvious to resize the window...but my lua programming experience is a big zero. As a start, is there an easy way to resize the mouse move wizard window? BTW I have dual monitors.
