M3 Automation
« on: October 02, 2014, 12:05:58 AM »
Hi all
I've been using VCarve and Mach3 for a while now but I've always been starting the spindle or what ever I'm controlling manually.

I want to now move to automating this process, can I set the M3 and M5 to be loaded when Vcarve produces its tool path or do I have to add these to the gcode once it's saved as the txt file? Or do I set it in Mach3?

I use the Gecko G540 stepper driver if that makes any difference...


Thanks

Yes, it's as simple as that.
