PCB Engraving
« on: January 18, 2008, 04:58:41 AM »
I am desiginig PCB in Protel software. This can generate gerber files of PCB. I want to milling it using Isolation method. I have 3-axis CNC machine controlled by MACH3. Is there any procedure to convert protel gerber file to mach3 code?

Thanks

Sanlee

Hi Sanlee,
This bit of software does what you want, I have used it a few times, but with CNCpro and not Mach3. However the Gcode will work in Mach3 I am sure.
