Wrapping post help

Postby crpoj13 » Sun Sep 24, 2017 7:07 pm

I have an issue with my post I need my post to put out a feed rate on each line and I cannot figure out how to tell post processor to do this. I'm running Mach 3 I'm not sure if there is a setting in mach3 which will enable this to work or not any help on this would be great thanks.

Not sure if I understand, is this what you're looking for:

What I'm looking to do is in my posted G-Code I need there to be a feed value on each G1 line. What's happening now is the very first G1 line it puts out a feed value but every other G1 line there is no feed value, so in mach3 when Irun a file once it gets to a G1 line without a feed value mach3 just sits & does nothing.

In my other cam systems there is a feed rate on each line of code and mach3 runs as expected.

Example: G-code to cut two boxes and a circle:

Are you saying that the hi-lighted values don't appear in your G-code?

What PP format did you select to save as?

Think I solved it. It turns out that it needed the G94, I had a G93 and with this code a F value is required on each G1 line.

In most instances, the F remains set until another F changes it. It isn't usually necessary to have it in each line. Dale

G94 is units per minute

G93 is inverse time feed rate mode

Vectric software is not capable of producing G93 code. At least not that I am aware of. :)
