Hi, Phill.
If you wanna check CNC Panels from big players at market check the simulator (trial) from here:

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.


Reverse-run can be a full tab. I can see the usabliity.

Morever, I think thats a good idea to show material selected and some properties. I can make some place for it. I will post.

This only uses 3 colors

So changing them would not be any problem
We can do this in settings or whatever.

QtSASS can be used with either QtPyVCP or QtVCP, and would make it extremely easy to customize the colors.

I have seen from past experience, dark base with bright fonts gives better visibilty.

I think integrating color changing will ruin the experience. Users will more frequently try to change colors.
What can be done, there could be a colors.conf file containing three hex color codes for the theme.
It will save theme setting option in UI.

I think it would be better as a swap between the jog panel. We can't (yet) jog while paused so the jog panel is not required when paused plus it is handy to see the preview when using cut recovery.

I like the idea of at least having the selected material on the main screen, maybe even in a corner of the cut path rendering screen. The rest of the settings could stay on a settings tab to minimize clutter.
