Back again :)

Not related to G49 but to the code used here.

I'm looking to try drag engraving, so i need the spindle off.

Fusion can't post with a zero spindle speed, it faults and aborts.

So, my thought is to set a speed of 1rpm in Fusion - the mill cannot do this.

Then edit the file load script a little to search this time for "S1 M3" and comment that out.

Does that sound workable - there is no way a proper job can be loaded to run at 1rpm so that should be ok, I also cannot think of any other time that "S1 M3" would appear in code???

Sounds good to me. Edit and delete would be fine too.
Bit poor about Fusion though.

Cheers

Yes, there are a lot asking for fusion to do static spindle posting, may come one day.

Are drag engravers any good?
Never used one :)

I tried using an MYOG drag engraver once, but the tip snapped off. I was probably mis-using it.
