Hi all;

I'm a new Tormach owner with some questions regarding feature/bug updates for my NFS wizards. My system came w/ version 2.72 of the wizards - I see you-all are up to 2.78 now.

 How do I go about downloading an updated version for my Tormach version of Mach3?

Is there a site that explains the history of revisions and make available the newest version?

 There are some "features" of the wizards that are a nuisance - like the removal of spindle and coolant start commands if the tool# is not changed each time. Are their workarounds for this?

I downloaded the manual - definitely a help, but some terms are not well explained like "lead" and "pitch" for ramping.

Overall, these wizards are great! After reading the forum messages I'm nominating Ron and Brian for sainthood...

Updates for the NFS wizards seem to be available through posts made in this section by Ron Ginger, like this one:


I don't know if they are available any where else.  I also have a Tormach mill and suspect that the wizards should work with the version of Mach3 supplied by Tormach.  I have *not* verified that though.  Maybe someone here or on the Yahoo Tormach group could confirm that.

Yes, new versions of the wizards are posted in this forum. I will always open a new topic with each new version, and I usually remove the old version. At the same time I send a copy to Brian and he puts it into the next Mach install kit he builds. We do not have a formal process to update Tormach.

To use a version put here simply copy the zip file to you mach folder and unzip the files into the Addons folder. You should wind up with everything the zip file in a folder called Newfangled under Addons.

There are 2 problems in 2.78 that affect Tormach users, a tool table description error and a path problem on the edit processes. I promised to fix these and get a Tormach version posted, but I have not done it yet. 'real soon now'
