DotG post processor for Mach3 Laser operation.
« on: February 19, 2018, 04:36:55 AM »
This is my DotG post processor for Mach3 laser operation.

Because the M11/M10 commands only operate upon axis movement and because DotG only produces it’s 'dot' output when the X and Y axis are stationary an imaginary B axis has been used to enable correct operation.
Within Mach3 the B axis is enabled and set-up with low step value - the Velocity / Acceleration can then be set to determine the ‘dot’ burn time.

I really need to start looking at this again.  never got to the point of using the M11/10 commands.  Thank you for the post

For those that are interested in DotG - I spent some time translating the User Manual and Post Processor Manual form Hungarian into English and these .pdf documents can be downloaded from here: http://dotg.weebly.com/download.html
