Here's an introduction to a new project that Ger21 (http://www.mycncuk.com/members/8582-Ger21) (Gerry) has been working on, It's a screenset for UCCNC, which is a CNC control software program from CNC Drive (http://cncdrive.com/UCCNC.html).

Currently being beta tested, and hopefully available soon, It's designed to be run on a HD monitor, adding auto zero and probing functionality along the way.

This looks cool, makes things a lot less cluttered if you don't happen to need all 6 axes that UCCNC supports. Does anyone know if it will work with the AXBB-E integrated controller/BOB please?

Funny you should dig this post up - I have just started installing and testing UCCNC and am on the verge of buying the 2017 screenset, but it doesn't state compatibility with the latest version... Is there any chance you can update us on the current situation Gerry?

Sorry guys, I missed this.

Here's the deal.
If you install the 2017 screenset with an AXBB-E, it won't work. The reason is that each controller actually has it's own screen, and the AXBB-E did not exist when I created the screenset.
I have a screen file that works with the AXBB-E, that uses a copy of the UC300ETH-UB1 screen, but the diagnostic page is not correct.
But there are some other issues involved here.
The AXBB-E requires the latest test release of UCCNC, which contains a lot of features that are not supported by the 2017 screenset. It **should** work OK, but you won't be able to use any of the new features.

I'm working on a new screenset that will support the AXBB-E, and the next full release of UCCNC. But I can't finish it until the actual version is released, as new features keep getting added with each test release.
One other thing to note, is that the next release of UCCNC contains a very thorought probing plugin, which is integrated into the screens. This will NOT be included with my next screenset, due to the way the plugin and screens were done.
But my screen will have it's own probing routines, which I plan on expanding, to be better and more powerful.

And I do have an AXBB-E, which I'll be using for testing the new probe routines.
