Re: Machine speed gcode not generated correctly

Each file stops the spindle at the end. I run them manually. Even if they were run automatically with no intervention, not starting the spindle at the beginning of the 2nd and succeeding files is a problem. I have attached the files (after changing the extension - .nc files aren't visible :( ); the ...

Re: making finishing paths more efficient?

It's not so much the depth as avoiding entire areas. Consider milling a sign - the roughing cutter won't be able to cut between letters (and only roughly around those letters), and I want a finish pass to ONLY cut between letters and refine their shapes.

making finishing paths more efficient?

Hi all, I have a few projects in mind where I'd like to have a roughing pass with a largish cutter (up to 1/4") and then finish with a small cutter (around 1mm). As an experiment I put together a quick test where there was a large pocket in the model and then a couple of small blocks extruded f...

Re: LinuxCNC question

Thanks for the info! Based on this, I think I'll stick with (most likely) a GRBL-based system. Since this is a hobby and - like everybody else - money is limited, the cost of a LinuxCNC based system seems to be a lot more than I'm interested in investing.

LinuxCNC question

Hi, I have a quick question - it appears that LinuxCNC requires a linux installation with the the real-time options to operate. Is this correct? How much horsepower would be required of the machine? I saw on the website that USB is not considered acceptable as communications. Am I correct in conclud...

Re: PathShape question

File v3 is more intricate - so much that I can't even delete the job to try and recreate it.
File v4 is very simple - and the engrave operation is empty. Edges were selected then the engrave operation selected.

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance

Re: PathShape question

I want to be able to engrave arbitrary shapes - such as borders - along with text. The gcode in the pathshape is not really usable (by including it within the engrave skeleton code) without massive editing. For example it simply generates the code for a single pass at height 0. I normally use multip...

Re: PathShape question

Is there a way to directly incorporate it into the engrave operation?
