One thing I might mention is you may want to add a button ( or edit an unused one)
and modify it to be a script button with the M3 command in it.

Hi Art . I was busy too , with my garden and flower greenhouse (think is right word for).
You right , i didn't think how easy can be . Always was a issue when some error's occur
and Estop fail in time of cutting something in one line or even on engrave , was impossible
to switch to MIDI run M3 and back to default stored fail point .
That simple " button" seem to be the best and easy solution to that.
Buttons are for Cut/engrave, M3, compressor&exhaust , and red laser XY lines for piece alignment
on laser table.
Thank's many beers commin' :thumbup:
Bobby

Hi Bobby:

Thx. Buttons are definitely the way to go for special commands or tweaks. I wouldnt have had so many
screams at Mach3's screen designer if I had had the idea of such smart buttons back then. :)

I hope the summer is going well. Im hard at simulation development and wrapping my head around
all the 3d math again. :)

Well when you get stuck, that ask for a fishing break , is always welcome and effective :)
I like math but only linear part , the rest of :sick:
Back to Auggie , i found a issue and i test it many time to be sure it is . I put the screenshot below.
As example , if i want to write something to a piece and the curve are very sharp is a good idea to
disable the "automatic" power adjustment on corners or sharp curve.
For that i need to :
Press ImageDither button ON
Press DistCord button ON
Presss DistCord button OFF
and after that work flawlessly
If i only push the DistCord button , nothing will happen .
Also that work only in that order, if you mess you need to start over again.
That buttons have a script or are integrate in main Auggie development ?
Thanks
Bobby

Hi Bobby:

I will note to correct that next time I'm in there. I knew there was a bit of weirdness there, they are internal calls, so there
is nothing you can do for that.

( I had to learn much of the math again as you lose if if you dont use it. Unlike gearotic, Im trying to make Ticker do actual
physical simulations as Auggies experimental module did. Only with better graphics , interface, gravity and such. Id also like
gears that can run around other gears instead of simple meshing.. I had forgotten how complex it all is when you try that,
but it is fun to do, Ill say that much... :)

Thx
Art
