CAM export: IJ relative/absolute value in G02 G03

Postby AMWILL » Fri Mar 21, 2014 12:36 pm

Newbie from Italy.
qcad pro 3.4.6.0 on windows 7 pro.

CAM export writes G02 and G03 strings using the relative I and J.
Is there a way to force CAM export to use absolute i J values ?
my hurco CNC requires that format and I'm stuck.
Thanks

Please save the two attached files into the directory "scripts/Cam/CamConfigurations" (overwrite the existing file "GCode.js").

When converting a file to G-code, choose the configuration "GCodeAbsIJ" to generate G-code with absolute I and J coordinates.
