GBRL Post Processor

Postby BAC133 » Fri Feb 08, 2019 3:51 pm

Hi. I have just downloaded Photo VCarve but I note there is not a GBRL Processor. How do I go about getting this processor and how do I add it to the Processor list. Appreciate any help.

I e-mailed them. Got the GBRL pp in both inches and millimeters. My problem was copying it to the list. Tried for hours but couldn’t get it. Frustrating.

PhotoVcarve is a bit of a pain when it comes to Post Processors as it's an older program that pre-dates a lot of the security updates in Windows and Windows really doesn't like people copying files into Program Files folders these days.

Did you get it to work in the end?

Hello dah79,

Please find the attached post processors.
Please copy the appropriate file to the "PostP" folder of PhotoVCarve.

This is usually located at "C\Program Files (x86)\PhotoVCarve\PostP"
(Assuming a 64 bit edition of Microsoft Windows).

Or if using a 32 bit edition of Microsoft Windows

This is usually located at "C\Program Files\PhotoVCarve\PostP"

Once you have copied the new post processor, exit the application and restart it.
The metric version of the new post processor will be labelled as "Grbl (mm) (*.gcode)"
The inch version of the new post processor will be labelled as "Grbl (inch) (*.gcode)"
in the list of post processors. Please give this a try with your machine.

I hope that this helps.


Cheers,

Mark.
