Mach4 - 3D Printer Mode ??
« on: November 02, 2015, 02:06:03 PM »
3D printer mode has appeared in the latest Mach4 version... what does it mean?

Does this mean that you can use Axis E and not have to remap E-Axis (extrusion) to A-Axis?

I'm not expert at 3d having not 3d printed, but curious as to what it means (I was considering buying a printhead for my setup and giving it a go)

.... is there a manual / description on what this mode will do?

Does it do something different to the Mach3 plugin here and Slic3r?

Thanks,

I thought I read that the g-code interpreter is slightly different for 3D printer mode.
