Setting up cam expert for my machine

Postby amada laser » Thu Dec 03, 2009 10:44 pm

Hi all , I have an Amada laser 667mkII with OM Fanuc controller .
I have attached a small snippet a typical g code , it is a very different animal to the code that I am getting out of cam expert .
Q . is there a way to configure the code that will be generated with cam expert ?
I am keen to start using my mac for the task rather than my Windows PC.

Yes, you will have to adjust the file machines/gcode.cxm or make a copy of it.

Searched for 'motion control' and got this thread, will start new thread if need be, cheers.
