I was talking to manufacturer about purchase of machine with a side rotary and 180 degree rotating head.
My concern is that I use Vcarve pro but it does not have postprocessor for Syntec controller (Rotary axis).
I asked the manufacturer about the postprocessors and they told me, because the machine is 4 axis, it I did not need postprocessors ??
I know I can produce gcode for rotary but I am not sure I can produce code for 4th axis with vcarve.
My take on it is , with the side rotary, it is not true 4 Axis, just 3 Axis with y axis modified to rotary axis ?
Adding the 180 deg rotating spindle makes it true 4 axis ? Thus needing the 6mb controller ?
Do I need postprocessors ?
