    Is there a way for a macro to request user input values? I would like for my macro to request through a dialog window my current tool diameter during a zero plate multi-axis probing. Something similar but simpler to dialog window in the built-in Z probing.

    Hey mark & Peter

    Ive discovered a problem then using OB Control

    when I run a finishing pass on the design im working on of Holiday presents, Using a 1/32 ball nose bit, 12mm per second feed and standard settings from Aspire 9.5 for everything else, the first 50 lines or so go fine but then the sender and machine crawl to a pace where it takes 20 mins to complete 1 line.

    Question for the developers. I use a laptop for work with my smaller CNC along with the Blackbox Controller. Is their an option to put the bottom view onto one of the sides? It would be a lot easier than turning my laptop sideways.

    Thank you.
