i try to make a new vakuum desk for my router, and need to drill about 2000 holes for that.
Because FC needs a very long time to create a array for 2000 holes, i made only one hole, create a drilling path from it and made a Array with path.
The resulting gcode works (tested on LinuCNC) but the whole code contends much unnedet lines.
FC shows this output for the array:
The big amount of rapid movements are only a display problem. If i import the FC gcode at the machine, the done path will be shouwn correct, from one hole to the next.
The gcode Path WB creates looks like that:
The code don't need the lines between the the different drilling lokations. If i reduce it to:
both codes are working, the machine makes the same operation.
It works on that way to, and if it's more easy to programm... why not.... But repeading only the operation, without the only one time needed commands and comments, minors the code very much... in this example from about 16000 to 2000 lines.
