    I'm curious about your installation. Do you need to add an additional user space module as with the Shuttle or just edits to the HAL files?

    No edits to hals, the projects you've seen are staying in generic-hid, just like plugging in a keyboard or mouse. As we've discussed before, it keeps you out of a lot of tweaks and settings that are probably plaguing development. My goal is to start simple.

    So your pendant looks like a keyboard + mouse to PP and thus no special drivers are required? That sounds like a winner!

    We're working on it. The small three button is about ready.

    I apologize for the radio silence! Yes there is progress, albeit slower than I want, but it is happening. A lot of changes over the last week or two. The biggest challenge has been finding an enclosure to be exactly what I want. Unfortunately, its not out there. Deciding to go to a custom 6061 machined enclosure (I've got a CNC milling machine right?) has been the biggest change, and probably the biggest relief, now that I can do what I want. You are welcome to see the latest on the design with the attached files. This PDF (https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1n...ew?usp=sharing) should be to scale for an 8.5" x 11". If you are ambitious enough; you can print and cut it out with scissors, I do this alot... it will give you a feel of the sizing and ergonomics I am shooting for. I apologize for the lack of details as most of the artwork is done in another format. If you have any questions just ask!

    Here are my latest notes:

    -The buttons around the MPG are X, Y, Z, COOLANT, STOP, PAUSE, START, ZERO around clockwise
    -The selector switch will have .0001, .001, CONTINUOUS, DYNAMIC
    -The three buttons next to the selector are FEED, RPM, MAXVEL select
    -The navi wheel controls JOG OVERRIDE slider, the center button selects RAPID/FEED speeds, and the outer arrows control directions.
    -The buttons on the side of the navi wheel are Z+ and Z-
    -I may add the JOG OVERRIDE control to the override group, I still want to play with some things.

    Thanks,
    Pete

    I had a little free time to work on the pendant. Here is the start of artwork. I am hoping, if it doesn't cost too much, to put LEDs on all the selection modes. There is still a lot changes to do, but its taking shape. I am machining out the housing this week hopefully.
