I wanted to add some more to this, but do to limited time, this is as far as it'll get.

There are 2 brains required. One for the spindle override, so it matches the FRO, and one for the Offset buttons. Make sure both are loaded and enabled. If you're code doesn't contain a spindle speed (like S5000), the LED may  not work correctly. One workaround is to put an S********* in your initialization string.

place all the .png's in Mach3\bitmaps\Aqua\

and Aqua.set in Mach3\

brains in Mach3\brains\


This version is the same as the last I posted, with the addition of the offset buttons changing color to match the current offset.

Enjoy. Smiley

100 hours.  Shocked

That could have been spent building your router.   Grin

Someone at CNC Zone posted a video of their machine, with a few seconds of the screen in action. Smiley

Here are the Photoshop files, if anyone wants to modify these screens. It's a 20+MB download, though.
http://tinyurl.com/pps585

There is a main file for each page, with each control on it's own layer. I turn most of the layers off to export the .png. Look at the actual .png files in the bitmap folder to see how I did it.

Because of the gradient backgrounds, buttons aligned left to right can share the same background. So you should find a single file for each horizontal row of buttons (in each control section). You can change the text and export a different .png for each button. You'll notice that there is duplicate text on buttons with the drop shadows. One under the highlight, with the drop shadow, and one above the highlight, without the shadow. This keeps the shadow below the highlight, and the text on top where it's more legible.

You'd have to modify the Photoshop files and use a screen designer to modify the controls on the screens. If you just want to remove some things, it shouldn't be too hard.

Update. Smiley

Added some buttons to the jogging area. Added a + and - to adjust the slow jog %, and for the incremental jog, added 3 buttons. Inc. cycles through the increments set in General Config. + and - increase and decrease by .1 on my machine. Not sure if this is settable anywhere?

CV Button. On the Settings page, the G64 "button" was just an LED. It's now a button that toggles between G61/G64.

Last thing, Pause LED. Not sure if it works, because it doesn't work in the version I have installed, 3.043. Can someone let me know if the pause button flashes when paused, and what version you're running if it does. I've heard the Pause LED works in the lockdown versions, but not the development (maybe just some?) versions.
