GCodeBackPlot issues was created by bcorley
I am migrating from gtk/Glade to QtPyVCP and have some issues with the GCodeBackPlot widget.

I am using:
linuxcnc 2.8
Debian 9.13
pyqt5.7

#1. I would like to get rid of the grid lines in the zView

#2. The cone scales with the XY footprint of the loaded program. In Z view, on large footprint programs, it covers a large percentage of the cut path. Can I make it smaller and possibly translucent?

Thanks,
bcorley

The grid lines can be spaces further apart (or removed entirely) in the ini file. Just change the grid increments and remove the ones you dont want or all of them to get rid of them completely.

As for the tool obscuring the toolpath when viewing from the Z direction, this is an exact problem i have been finding also and would love a solution to

Set the tool diameter in the tool table, i am pretty sure the GUI will change it's appearance depending on the tool dimensions and shape.

So, I commented out GRIDS under [DISPLAY] - no help, still shows grid lines. Was this the right parameter?

For the cone size issue,
I added 'CONESIZE_BASESIZE=0.1' in my [DISPLAY] section - no help.
Could be that I am not using Axis, (I've made a custom GUI from scratch)? If so, what does Axis set based on this ini value?

Further, this is a plasma machine and I don't use the tool table. However, I tried sending an mdi of 'T1 M6', (T1 has diameter of 0.125" in tool table), but nothing changed. I cleared the program then reloaded it and the cone still becomes huge, ignoring the tool diameter set in the tool table.

I attached a screenshot of the GUI. I was able to send an mdi of 'M61 T1' and the tool did change!
Now if I could just get rid of those pesky grid lines.

Hi,

I am migrating from gtk/Glade to QtPyVCP

I know this is a little late but I am thinking of doing the same with my custom lathe gui. How difficult is it to go from glade to QtPyVcp? Can you reuse your handler file in anyway?
