Universal G-Code Sender?

Postby jglazer » Mon Oct 10, 2016 1:48 pm

Can someone please post the procedure on how to use VCarve with Universal G-Code Sender? I have tred the G-Code post processor as well as a few others and they just made my X-Carve go funky.

What post-processor/settings should I be using?

Thanks!!

Really? Not the g-code ones? I didn't see GRBL but I didn't look for one.

Well the GRBL export is close and I can sorta see my carving but its no where near useful. Any other ideas?

Define "no where near useful"?
As far as I know, Universal G-Code Sender is running GRBL, so a GRBL post should work.
What's the problem?

in V-Carve 8.5, there are two X-Carve PP's, one Inch, one MM. Try those and see if it resolves the issues.

Thanks Elevation, I never thought to scroll down and look for "X". Yes this works fine. The GRBL one is screwy but the X-Carve PP was perfect. Thanks for pointing me to the obvious! :)
