Wizzard tutorial?
« on: April 24, 2006, 12:37:11 PM »
Are there any tutorials or videos about making wizards?
What would be cool, would be to have the ability to program the operation of a machine (not necesarily a XYZ machine) like a plastic injector, where you could input the number of pieces you want to produce, input all the times for the different operations, amount of plastic to shoot, etc...
That would allow Mach 3 to be used in other aplications, like the coil winder machine, the example above etc...
Like user az7733 said: Teach us to fish!

Just starting to get feet wet with the mach 2 customization document.

Fernando:

 Also, a great way to figure out wizard is to open up the digitize wizard in Screen 4. Get used to all the controls and how they ar eplaced. Notice that several of the buttons are set to run MAcros..

Now open up Mach3, run the digitize wizard, select config/edit script button. Notice all buttons that have scripts in them start to flash. Click on one and it will show the script in it.. Look at all the scripts,
how to write a wizard will slowly become very clear. Its just buttons, and scripts and DRO's.. Thats all. :)

Thanks Art,
It sounds simple enough, just need to learn a little of VB scripting.
I am surprised I havent seen more machines being controled by Mach (non cartesian).
I´ll give it a go.

F:

   When you unzipped Screen4 , there were three text files in there as well as Screen4.exe. All 4 must be copied to the MAch3 folder. If not, that error is output..
