Is is possible to have a post processor make calculations to come up with a number?
I have a Cobra with recoil, and I want the linear speed of the A-axis to match the speed of my Y-axis.
So what I want is my post processor to assign a separate feedrate to the A-axis that would be calculated as
For now, I put in a line "[N] F 10000 A", where I can make that calculation myself and manually change the '10000' to whatever angular speed I need. But it would be nice to have the post processor make that calculation automatically, so I don't have to edit the G-code for each tool that uses a different speed.
"[N] F ([FC]114.65/[WRAP_DIA]) A", where everything in the parenthesis would be calculated automatically.
