I am trying to help a friend set up his cnc to be able to use Vectric products. He has an essentially a home built machine using uccnc controller software. I cannot find any post processor for this controller software. When I try to vcarve text the letters are not round but hexagonal. Can anyone help with what post processor he should be using? Thanks.
I should also add that if I create a circle vector it cuts fine (not hexagonal). But, if I take the text (the letter O) and convert it to vectors, the machine still cuts it with hexagonal and not round. Perplexing?
It's your CV settings in UCCNC, not the post processor. If you are working in inches, the default CV values are in mm's, and need to be changed. If the error settings are set to .01, try changing them to .003
