Shapeoko pp for photocarve

Postby Bbbert » Fri Sep 29, 2017 9:57 pm

I am trying to cut a bmp in photocarve and I don't see a post processor that works for Shapeoko xl....I have a pp for the carve program but I can't find a way to add it. How about a little help for a new guy.....thanks

Use the GRBL (inch) or (mm) post processor. It should work for Photocarve. I have used it for both VCarve and Aspire.

Define "do anything"?

With the demo you can only cut the demo files that are supplied with the program. You can preview any of your own files but not produce cut files for them.
