MACH VERSION R3.042.020 - MACH3TURN
« on: December 01, 2008, 09:34:17 PM »
HELP  ???
Just updated to R3.042.020 and seem to have a little problem with the graphics screen in MACH3turn, namely can't see the part
very well. This is also happening with another computer which has R3.042.18 on it. Never had this problem in any of the other
revisions.    a turn bug?   any suggestions?

Hey Rich, I think this is a known problem. Would you post the code that is generating the error?

Can you zoom in?  I think you hold down the left mouse button to zoom and hold down the right mouse button to pan.  My display will look like yours when I have a tool change and the carrage has to move all the way to the right to make the change.  I can zoom and pan and I am using the same version you have.

Strange happenings.
 
One file will not soom out at all - 9 itemfp_hcir

One file can zoom out all you want - 5dxf_NOCLR ( in fact with this file i zoomed out until i only saw two end points of two lines and then it locked the computer up - can't duplicate that again - hate to pull the plug out of computer)

This file will only do a limited zoom - 5dxf_noclr_wprofile (say half as much as the other / same file but it has a finishing cut added to it)

And the graphics display varies widely.

Yes it is a known problem, its to do with arcs I think, your extents will be all screwed and that is why the display is so distant.
I think Brian is working on it. Afraid I cant remember what version it started with, I think 015 was this way as well.

Yup Rich, this is a know issue. I had a look at your code looking for some obvious things but didn't see any. I understand it is being worked on. Not sure when it showed up.

Thanks folks,
Just a reflection,
Can you imagine the new user going through a learning curve, which is bad enough,
and then he's going bonkers wondering whats wrong or even reading this post and saying .....well which
version is most appropriate and solid.
I know that there has been a lot of work put into fixes, but sometimes fixing the faucet and breaking the pipe
leaves the owner with no joy. Sort of like driving a car blind folded. So on a scale of 1 to 10 this one is a 10.
Just thinking of the newbie ( hey that's me ). ;)
