Re: Little holes in my work

Photo?? is it at the end or start of the cut? Changes in direction? is it where the gcode steps from one line to the next? Do you have an example code you can post (just delete a chunk out of the middle if you are previous about your work).

Re: Path Rules and Code Snippets

Any idea how I can do that with the path rules "On Small Shapes" and "On Small Circles" so if I wanted a code snippet before M3 and after M5, it would do it automatically.

Re: Z axis speed setting for THC.

you can add it to the post processor file so that an extra text box is added to the tool table. I would suggest you have a look at the candcnc post processors installed as default. at the start of the code befor oninit() there is a section that defines additional thc voltages that the candcnc postpr...

Re: Router bit raises instead of lowers

check all your axis are moving in the right direction.....

normally z+ is upward and z- is downward

X+ is to your right
X- is to your left
Y+ is away from you
Y- is towards you
