Here's a modified version of my other screen set for a single Z axis router.

 I haven't really tested it, but I think everything is working.

There is no toolpath on the Run screen. The reason for this is that CPU usage is about 75% lower without the toolpath on the screen, and when your cutting, you're usually looking at the machine, not the screen. This should make this screen run better on slower PC's than the standard screens.

Unzip all the .png files to Mach3\Bitmaps\Router\ and put the Router.set file in the mach3 folder. It's setup for spindle to use Output 1 and Coolant Output 2.

Let me know if there are any issues and I'll fix em up.

Also, here's the Real Draw Pro files if anyone wants to modify the Screens (you'll need RealDraw Pro).

VERY nice... I love that screen Smiley Nice and simple... If you would like we can put that screen on the web for you when you are happy with it Smiley

Thanks for showing us all your work, very few know what time is involved with a simple screen like that Smiley The more simple it looks the harder it was to make Wink

Thanks

Brian, you mentioned on the Yahoo group about possibly adding a router screen to the install. Were you talking about this one?

Looks good Gerry. You should request your screen be added to the official screen download section.

The Pythagorean theorem: The sum of the areas of the two squares on the legs (a and b) equals the area of the square on the hypotenuse (c). a + b = c.
