What replaces G79 for Mach3?
« on: September 11, 2007, 05:22:27 AM »
Hi all,

I am trying to create some g-code from VectorXT for use in Mach3.
The problem is the post processor is placing a G79 before the coordinates for the drill hole. I am using an isoacv10 post.
Is there a replacement just for this G79 or is there a good Post processor for use with Mach3, latest lockdown version.

Thanks

Thanks Graham. I ended up using a different post that did something similar, replacing the G79's with G82.
