I run a author 430s, I had to combine two different posts to get both tool changing and arcs to work. Send me an email and I will send you a copy when I am back a the office.
Hope it will help

HI.... thank you for the replies..

Timvax.. Have you tried the Morbidelli posts that Vectric already provide?
no sorry ... i have not .. but if you could please point me in the direction of where/how
i would gladly try them....
thank you.

Dave.... yes will e-mail you .. and again thank you for your help....


just to clarify... the firm i work for bought a MORBIDELLI 430 for the manufacture of furniture units
and have bought the software to do such... and its great..
i have always made craft work using a scroll saw and they are more than willing for me to use
the Morbidelli as such as they are keen for me to learn of its other capabillities..
yes i am a complete novice but i am willing to learn...

thank you
john.

Here is the post that I have modified and have been using with my Morbidelli author 430s.
It seem to work good on my machine.
It will accept arcs and tool changes.

Hi John
When you have calculated your toolpaths, you'll need to post them.
When you click on the "Save toolpath" Icon, you'll see a dropdown box that tells you what post processor you're going to use. Change this to one of the Morbidelli ones & give it a go (cautiously of course!)

If you scroll down the list in the dropdown you should come to 3 Morbidelli posts....

HI.. Tivmax.... i have only downloaded the trial version to see if it was compatable for the Morbidelli
the only dropdown list i see is on the left of the page and it is not listed there
i can only presume its on the right of the page in the full version...

Ron.. i did try to add KWDI's code, but as i state above i only have the trial version .. so dont think i can add the code.. i could be wrong though..

Thank you all for helping it is appreciated ..
john.

The trial version of PhotoVCarve will only let you machine the sample files that come with it but otherwise is the same as the retail version.

There appears to be some confusion in this thread because the pictures and descriptions posted are for Aspire rather than PhotoVCarve.

Also the Post Processor that KWD1 has posted appears to be from VCarve or Aspire as it's uses commands that are not supported by PhotoVCarve and will cause errors if loaded.
