How many commands can the MDI buffer?
« on: July 27, 2020, 09:28:26 AM »
Hi there,
Sometime I use the MDI facility in Mach3 to jab in some simple commands (e.g. when surfacing a workpiece), and add more commands while it's executing other movements.
However: how many commands can Mach3 buffer entered via this MDI way before something bad might happen?

If this limit is small, does this ever overflow, and commands are skipped?
Does Mach3 alert you if you try and enter too many?

Thanks,
Dan

Hi,
download Mach4 and try out the multiline MDI block.

Thanks. However I do not want to update to Mach4. (MachStdMill Screenset is not compatible and I want to carry on using this).
