    Got a sneak preview of the changes? Especially the support of rotary machining (incl. graphical preview) and making the transformation matrix "stick" when the program is closed like the old software?

    Re: TNG Progress

    Graphical preview of rotary axes is implemented.
    Transformation stay active when g-code program is reloaded. It can also be persistent between software restarts.

    Re: TNG Progress

    Couple of questions...

    Are the change notes posted somewhere? I didn't see them on this forum or the Planet-CNC.com website.

    Also, if V2 is still in beta, why isn't V1 still available for download? I would think that users like myself could potentially need to revert to V1 if issues are found in V2.

    Everything is changed so change log isn't really applicable.

    Status is beta until cycles are completed.
    Untill then you can get link to previous TNG version from our support.

    Is G76 implemented, because TNG v2 is throwing this error - "Word 'I' without command that uses it"

    Re: TNG Progress

    Thanks, just downloaded and tried in simulation mode. Looking good so far. Will try tomorrow on the machine.
    Questions and some beta findings:
    - Same license info as for the V1 version, I guess?
    - The whole speed calculation and lookahead thing seems to have changed. Should I just use the defaults that came with the download?
    - I am missing the button from the old CNC-USB software to set all positions to zero. Can I get that somehow back?
    - Whe I click "Check for updates" it tells me that I still have the 2018 version and should update to the 2019 version, although I definitely have the 2019 version. So, the update check does not work properly.
    - The helpfile/user manual and g-code manual menu items do not work.
    - It shows "Revert to V1" in the machine menu. Does that mean "Revert to TNG V1" or is it "Revert to CNC-USB" ? I would hate to update if I don't have the option to go back to CNC-USB if something does not work for me.

    G76 is a cycle. There are some issues with cycles and we need a week or so to finish them.

    Re: TNG Progress

    - Same license as TNGv1. If you have old CNCUSB license then write to support to get TNGv2 license.

    - Defaults lookahead/blend settings should be fine for most users.

    - There is a button to set XY work position to zero and Z work position to zero because usually work position is set separately for Z. However in TNGv2 you can create custom buttons and/or change behavior of most machine related commands.

    - Check for updates needs to be updated. I simply forgot.

    - I will check why manuals don't work. There should be 3 manuals in setup file.

    - Revert to V1 means go back to Mk1 CNCUSB. Make sure you follow instructions how to properly use this.

    Re: TNG Progress

    Hello,
    I downloaded TNG V2 beta but the software installation is not clear to me; I noticed that the executable contained in the download is executed directly without installation ... maybe because I have already installed the V.1? Perhaps the contents of the zip should be copied to the V1 folder replacing the original files? in this case, is the software localization still possible with the txt files contained in the lang folder?
    Thanks
