Some of us without the ability to set the plasma cutter up via RS485 might have something like "2mm mild steel, 5.2 bar, 40 amps" for the name. I thought cycling through the data would save screen space.

I was not able to get this . can you clarify this?

Yeah, I got you. What I can do is in G53, It should show Homing icon, But in work offsets, this should be limited to zeroing x and y only.
I will post asap.


rodw wrote: Also, that zero button might need a configuration option so that it also zeros to a laser pointer position before setting the offset. I find that pretty important

I dont have laser at offset. But still I can see what i can do.

Can you please post the names and sizes of the fonts you are using? I was not able to extract that info from the SVG.

@rodw. I have made the tile bar with material info.


ANOTHER OPTION

@phillc54 I have added the Reverse run( when paused) as you asked, i can surely rename to cut-recovery.


I would suggest an option for just using material name only on the main display and keeping the other settings on a separate tab. The issue I see with these options in my own case is I have quite long and descriptive material names and there isn't room to see the full name there. For example here is one of mine: "Stainless Steel - EDGE START - 45 A - 5/8 IN". I've made mine descriptive so I can quickly identify the correct material, what those mystery settings actually are are from my manual and don't compute between my ears anyway! Being able to just quickly see that the correct material is selected when a program is loaded is all I'd personally be concerned about at that moment. If I needed to deviate from the manual's recommended settings I would be poking around a settings tab anyway. Just my 2 cents.

How about a combination of your two options? A title bar that has the material name, then the individual settings on separate lines in the corner?

Excellent! Thanks for the font info.
An SVG files it most convenient for me to work from, since I use mostly open source software. I doubt many people will be able to open an adobe xd file.

In qt designer how responsive windows work.
how software will change shape in different resolutions?

90% modern touch monitors are 1080p.
most common resolution is 1366x768.

I like AgentWD40's idea. What I was proposing was to be able to cycle between the two views by pressing a button.

So back to G54/G53 offsets, that looks good. So I know some of Kurt's screens let you click on a X,Y or Z DRO and set the offset from a popup numeric keyboard. To be able to do that would be nice. I hope Kurt can also build that in.

So the toolpath title is tge way to go.
Only selected material name (e.g. Stainless Steel - EDGE START - 45 A - 5/8 IN) will be shown.
Clicking on it will toggle further description on the toolpath corner.
How that sounds
