Saving multi tools in one file for Linuxcnc

Postby Couvelacnc » Tue Dec 05, 2017 1:03 pm


I'm a beginner in CNC, using Vcarve Desktop on Windows 7 and Linuxcnc for the machine.
I've got a file with many changes of tools during the work.
I've searched in this forum and on the internet to know how to save multitools file for Linuxcnc.
Without success.

Any idea or post to go ahead ?
May be is there a post-processor that I could use for Linuxcnc that could do the job ?

Thank for reading and may be replying.

This will only work in 2 conditions.

1) Someone has developed the macros for LinuxCNC that are required for the toolchanges
2) A Vectric Post processor is developed that uses the commands in those macros.
