hi

looking to know if any one knows away to that be used to stop an axis being drawin the in axis preview/backplot window. something to add to axisrc file or such..

as i have a W axis on the lathe but its quite pain when W axis moves and on backplot its draw on same section as the Z axis, so would be nice to get rid of it from being drawn when its moved etc..

untill someone can find some time to improve the backplot for multi turret lathes & slantbed lathes..

thanks, rob

I don't know how to stop just one axis but you can use special comments to hide all or part of the g code.

GEOMETRY= in the INI file might do the trick. If you leave out the W it might be ignored.

(However, the comment thee says it only has any effect when there are rotary axes, so it might well not work)
