Post by bgriggs »

Does anyone know of a postprocessor for the Torchmate Growth Series machines without an ATC?

You could edit the ATC one and remove the TOOLCHANGE section if it's not needed/causing problems.

Thanks Adrian,

We did that and got it working. We had to adjust the Z axis velocity slower, because the torch moves faster than a router but that was the only detail we needed to adjust.
