Notes:
1. In this session, Calypso Ventures, Inc. will present new abilities introduced with the MachStdMill 2.0 release. This session will concentrate on the new GUI for Turn operation and the new Mill-Turn module, which enables an MSM user to do turning operations with a vertical mill.

2. Software we will be using for this class:
• Klaus’ “MachScreen”
• “RealDraw Pro” graphics software

Goodies
• I will give everyone my “Resource” docs on Mach3, specific VB script calls, organized OEM codes, and programming manuals via wireless peer-to-peer shared folders. If you don’t have wireless capability on your laptop, bring a jump drive.
• I will show a Mach3 “Flash Screen” and briefly touch on Flash Screen design.

Class Requirements if you want to fully participate:
• Download a trial or buy RealDraw Pro from www.mediachance.com/realdraw/index.html
• Download MachScreen from http://www.kd-dietz.com/klausphp/pag...criptions.html. On that page, click on Program Downloads, then click on MachScreen.

Disclaimers
• The Wizard part assumes you have some familiarity with VB script. We will not have enough time to teach VB script.
• Graphics examples will only be shown for RealDraw Pro. No claims are made for any other graphics program being compatible for dual graphic state LEDs.
• Questions will be answered for the topics we are covering, but questions outside of that will have to wait until the end of the class for a Q & A session – assuming we have time at the end for the Q & A session.

3. Jyoti’s history includes: Director of Development at Makino in Japan, Product Development for LeBlond USA, Spindle Design for Hardinge, R & D for Ford Motor Company, Consultant for Milltronics, and Consultant to Smithy for the Granite machine and CNC bed mills.

4. Wally is an electrical engineer by training and has developed as a software programmer through the years. He has extensive experience with CNC programming development in Europe and the Middle East. He is the lead programmer of EZ-Trol.
