thanks for giving my little program a try.
GrblGru only displays machines in the selection box which are entered in the machine dat AND of which the 3D models are available.You made the entry in the machine.dat with the help of the machine manager. You can also check and change this with a normal editor (e.g. Notepad++) in the file “C:\ProgramData\GrblGru\machine.dat”.
I suspect that you have not loaded any 3D objects. The file with the 3D objects is in the folder “C:\ProgramData\GrblGru\Models”. So if you have e.g. created a machine “5axes_4” GrblGru searches for a file “5axes_4.tco” in this folder. If this is not available, the machine does not appear in the selection box.
In the appendix you will find instructions for creating the 3D model.
You cannot create a new machine type yourself. I have to do that. If you can send me a 3D model (step, iges), I will try to make a new type out of it. The model should be very simple and only represent the type. Once I have created the kinematics, you can create a more detailed model.
