I read your post on this subject from Oct 2005. I also have a Gerber Dimension 200 router and am trying to find a way to run newer software on this machine. In April 2003, I was on the MasterCAM forum and I asked whether anyone there could assist with this issue. I received the following reply from Steve Landkamer in GA USA:
'...hope this helps with the Gerber Dimensions it works with the Sabre 404 router. This is what I found out yesterday when I had my hands on a Sabre 404.
With a Gerber Sabre 404 series router the control can be set to receive g-code. The option is in the “Program Setup” area on the controller’s pendant. The communications settings that should be used on the PC side are 9600,E,8,1 with software handshake(I used CIMCO Edit). The control is in a DNC mode when sending g-code. The codes that I found that work on the control are: G00, G01, G02, G03, G90, G20, M06, M05, M03, M30, and S & F. The G18 & G19 plane codes are NOT allowed.
I hope this helps others in the future.
So, my question now is this: Assuming I can adjust the controller to accept the G-code, does your V-carve software output the G-code Steve describes and will it function correctly? Thanks for your input.
