Hello,

I have a question. I have quite a large work envelope on my machine.
When i Mill small parts I would like to zoom in. But the zoom ist more or less centred to the whole work envelope, so the part will move out of visibility.
I tried move the shown are with the mouse or touch, but its tilting then.
Is there a way to move instead?

Thanks Patrick

Not sure about other GUIs (they may or may not be the same), but in Axis left mouse click on the display and drag moves the view center, left mouse click and drag while holding the shift key rotates, the scroll wheel on the mouse or left click and drag up/down while holding ctrl key zooms in/out.

If you are using the 3d perspective view, sometimes moving the center can also appear to rotate the screen as well, try using one of the 2d views instead.

this is because of the clipping range set too low

do you work with metric unit system?
what are your work area dimensions?

i can increase that here
github.com/kcjengr/qtpyvcp/blob/master/q...ackplot.py#L294-L303

Thanks for the report

Hello,
I completely misunderstood your first post :ohmy:

Ok started adding the focus path feature but ironically broke the clipping range :/

Yes I want the zoom to focus on the part. Focus on the path maybe won’t work because for tool changes the machine moves to the origin.

But there must be a solution to move with touch. I saw it in a video. When I try to move with touch it is rotating

Many thanks for making and improve qtpyvcp

maybe it's a stupid question but how do I use it.
lift click tilt, right click zooms but I haven't figured out ho to change the focus of the zoom or move the plot?

Thanks Patrick
