I have a traditional CNC, and now I have recently started working with rotary CNC woodworking. My machine has X, Z, and A axis. I am currently using vcarve pro 9.5. Both my machines run on LinuxCNC.
My issue – when using rotary gcode straight out of vcarve, the rotary speeds are all over the place. Often VERY slow, but then sometimes it will suddenly go crazy fast.
I understand that as of version 9.5 vectric products now can work with G93. I currently run my gcode through a free product called “Rapid Rotary” (there is a nice youtube video showing the issue, and showing the software). This software does a good job converting the code to work with the G93 command, and if I cannot get the PP to work, I will still be ok. I would much prefer elimination that step, and having more control using the vectric PP.
I have tweaked my PP for basic changes, but I do not understand how to change the PP to work with the G93 command.
Is there already a PP out there I can tweak to work with LinuxCNC, or can someone explain how to convert my existing PP to work with G93.
