Looking for a CNC post programmer

Postby Kentmill » Wed Apr 04, 2018 10:57 pm

Does anyone know a good CNC Post programmer that I can pay to help me figure out how to run Vcarve on a Boss Router [EZ Router made, different coding]?
Thanks!!

Do you have an example of code that does work without issue?

This is from another program [CabinetVision] that I run on our CNC currently. This works great.

You should be able to get the output you require from the generic "Gcode ATC Inch" post processor. You may have to eliminate a couple minor callouts in the header

That is very generic G-Code.

Just about any of the G-Code posts would work.

I know, its very frustrating because I can't get it to run on the CNC. I do think that it has something to do with my Z axis. I keep getting crazy Z limit warnings and what does cut out is way of on depth.

To clarify in the "I can't get it to run" are you referring to the g-code example that you posted (from the other program) that "works great" or are you referring to the output of the "Gcode ATC Inch" post-processor from Vectric software?

Looking the "Gcode ATC Inch" it has both things missing from your sample (e.g. G90) and things in addition to what's in your sample (e.g. G17) so they're not what I'd call directly comparable.

It wouldn't be much of an effort to alter "Gcode ATC Inch" to produce what you've posted.
