ShopBot odometer: System Log Interface
Overview...The odometer is a very rudimentary
interface for the ShopBot system log to show some of the info that's stored
Notes...It will ONLY work if you've installed the ShopBot software in the default install location..."C:\Program Files\ShopBot\ShopBot 3", and will not work with the DOS software. Also make sure that the "Write System Log" option in the [VD] menu is set to 1 "Write", or data will not be saved when files are run. And most importantly DO NOT use the values generated by the odometer for estimating purposes...it doesn't have that high of a confidence level at this point!
update 7/03/09: Odometer is now Vista compliant for version 3.6.1 or later of the ShopBot control software
update1/04/08: The option to create reports in txt format and csv format for opening in a spreadsheet have been added, but they are very basic and the formatting is...well...rough. With some refinement it has the potential to be a helpful business tool, so any feedback will be appreciated
