    No App... (apps are sooo 2014 (pun intended) - what you found is not ours and not in this generation)

    Just a webpage:

    - Put PC and Phone on same LAN
    - Find out IP of PC (or click Mobile Jog Widget under Wizards and Tools)
    - Point browser on phone to http://ip-address-of-the-pc-running-control:3000/jog (or scan the QR code under Mobile Jog Widget under Wizards and Tools)

    Where to go:

    Example of window inside control: (Your IP will obviously differ...)
    jog widgety.PNG

    and Screenshot from phone browser:

    ah I see. I figured it was probably an obsolete app of some sort because the UI was super generic and didnt look like anything yall would have put out recently. Thanks!

    Question about the 3Dview, I only see a flat 2D picture after I load gcode. Is there some set of keys I need to use?

    Use your Mouse. Click and drag with right button (orbit), middle button (pan) and Zoom with mousewheel.

    DUH! I work in IT and have been doing so for over 25 years. I keep telling people that if you're not careful, PC's will make you stupid. (middle button)

    Thanks!
