    How is it that Vista pendants work on LinuxCNC but not PP?

    I don't know. I spent some time on it and never got it to work.

    I see in pictures now and then a jog wheel on new mx models. Maybe something they are working on. The pendant works well, I do have years of practice. As others mentioned conversation and midi will go long way, again with practice. Some things like gears on 4th axis are way quicker to setup, touch off and do the math with midi moves then to ever try and cam real gear models in the cam software I use any way. You can still do it with 2d ops and rotary translations in cam, but cutter profiles and other data is not there for complete simulation and Brute force is the way to make a few fast.


    I take this back on cutting gears. I found the one setting in 2d ops that was always causing a problem when generating the g-code. Code posts out correct and compact like it should now.
