GRBL Post Processor

Postby hooked » Mon Aug 22, 2016 10:46 pm

Hi,

I am using the default GRBL post processor on my home built cnc. I want to slow down the first rapid move from the home position to the first cut position and I'm figuring I do this in the post processor file but I'm not sure how. I have opened the file and looked for the obvious. I have read the PP guide but cant quite get my head around what I need to do.

Thanks in anticipation for any direction given.

Cheers

Daryl

Me again,

As soon as I walked away from posting the above......it came to me. I probably have to alter the rapid feed setting in GRBL.

Cheers

Rapid move speed, along with acceleration, is set by your machine controller.

EDIT: We were typing at the same time, yes you figured it out.
