Thankyou Kurt, I admire your work.

I don't think it would take more than a few hours to get the bulk of this done in QtPyVCP or QtVCP.
Did you do the mock-up in inkscape? If so can you share the source SVG?
I used Adobe XD.
Surely I can share svg.
It is attached.
If anyone want to give suggestions, I am open for suggestions and criticism if any.

svg itself was not attaching so i zipped it
1. I think it needs a torch enable button. I use that a lot.
2. Consider separating cycle start from machine power to avoid unintentional triggers.
I really like the touch friendly flat interface, no annoying tabs like Gmoccappy has.
Reverse Run is only useable while paused so you could swap out the jog panel with a reverse run panel when a job is paused or you could make it a cut recovery panel with these functions:

1) I liked your idea, so I changed that.
2) For the moment we will have to sacrifice reverse-run. How much reverse-run is important?
Phil's idea of swapping out the jog panel sounds like a great idea.
The other thing that needs to be displayed is the Plasmac material that is selected.
Somewhere we need to be able to see all the cut parameters for the selected material but maybe they don't have to be on the main screen.
Maybe you could shorten the preview and place the material name, cut height, pierce height, pierce delay and cut speed either above or below the preview on one or two lines. Clicking that line might open a selection window or tab and show the rest of the settings.
