touch probe file converting to g gode??
« on: November 30, 2009, 05:03:31 PM »
I'm looking for a way to edit the code generated by the digitizing wizard (not plug-in) to a more usable format.  The file Mach generates is missing the x, y and z characters and simply separates the coordinates with a comma.

I could generate a point cloud in my cad program if the code was simply edited to include the X, Y and Z letters in each line..

Here's an example

Here's what I have to start with from Mach

-6.032136,1.419120,0.835333
-5.907102,1.419120,0.822000
-5.782069,1.419120,0.803333
-5.657035,1.419120,0.776000


This is what it needs to end up as so my cad/cam can read it.

X-6.032136,Y1.419120,Z0.835333
etc..

Any suggestions?

if you go to the Config menu then Ports and Pins then Mill Options then digitizing you will see a box that if checked may put X Y and Z letters in for you
