Just trying to help as that's from the website where it's sold, and figured it might not "look" good as a preview there to buying this.

I'll go back to my corner now...lol  :P

My friend (a machine manufacturer) just mailed me abt this screen.he said that there are some errors in it.

This screen is sure Dam good,and we don't mind if it costs more than the basic software.but at the same time we expect the screen to be complete bug free.

i hope some one can help us here.bcz iam also planning to go with this screen.

Hi Fever16,

100% any issues or bugs found are fixed, one on one phone support is available at Mach Motion as well.

Give a call or email for support, we love to talk about Mach, CNC machining as well as suggestions and enhancements you would like to see.

Our mission is to make the very best CNC GUI available.

Mach Motion has added a large number of enchantments to the screen since Version 1.2.0, which in turn may have some of their functionality turned off by default.
This is a result of the "Stored Settings" available in the screen. Your settings are not "overwritten" when installing an update or reinstalling the screen, so we have added an option in the installer to "Restore Default Settings".

We are almost done with the documentation for the screen and will have it available locally in the screen as well as via the web.

LED 1813 set to "0" will turn on the keyboard via VB.

Here is a list of some commands you can call to the screen via VB:

iam sorry for my late reply.
and thanks for the response.

as far as the setup is concern.we received MachMotionPro1.0.1A.exe at first via email.later it got updated to MachMotionPro1.0.2B.exe
we had issue with both the versions.
in A:
1.wizards not working
2.not able to add tool length
3.not abe to load keyboard from sub menu.
and in B:
1.same as above wizards not working
2.keyboard not at all working(even at mdi)
3.not able to load G-code

so currently we are running the system using old A version.

and VB method never worked to bring up keyboard(tried on B version)

so when ur going to release Version 1.2.0.i need to solve all these issues as soon as possible.
