I'm attempting to run sheet cam on the openbuilds black box controller to operate my plasma table. I have tried to use both of the attached post processors but with similar results. After importing a simple dxf file, creating a plasma tool, and operation, I am able successfully run a simulation in Sheetcam; However, when I post process and attempt to run a simulation on the BB controller I don't get the same result. I have included a copy of the gcode after post process below. In this example I am using the GRBL THC with scriber.scpost. The first problem I'm having is the simulation seems to lock up at line 2. I believe this is due to the F1. I have manually changed this to F1000 and it seems to get going. The second problem I'm having is ,I have a series of holes in a plate, and the tool moves to all the lead ins, but fails to travel around the circumference of the hole before moving to the next lead in. I suspect that I have a conflict in settings, as several folks seem to be able to make these post processors work. In the interest of full disclosure I haven't bought the license yet for sheetcam because I wanted to make sure i could get everything working. The code I've been generating is less than 180 lines so I am assuming this is not the problem. I'm hopeful one of you can help me sort these issues out.
