Has anyone noticed and bug when selecting between post processors in version 10.5. Using the same post processer as I used in version 9.x for a Diamond Drag Bit but now in 10.5 the spindle turns on.

I.E: Engraving on image on a piece of Acrylic and want to use a upcut ...

Re: Why can't I read my post processor (Please Help)

Thank you to all of you who responded extension of .pp works great. But it still does not let me read it as I am getting a error message now.

Re: Laguna IQ Post Processor

Thank you, I did find the document on post editing and now have it printed out and also have commented out M03 and M05 lines. However, I'm having a problem now with the vectric software not recognizing it as a post processor file. I did save it as a text file so I will have to do some research as to...

Re: Laguna IQ Spindle Cooling

All fixed up. I connected a small piece of hose to the in let on the spindle and could not force any air through so I used some small wire air brush cleaners to go in and it worked. Loosened up some junk and then put the compressed air to it again and it blew junk out of the spindle. Hooked it back ...
