Re: VCarve Desktop gcode for Shapeoko XL

What exactly are you trying to evaluate? I find Vetric to be very supportive. They’ve answered all my questions satisfactorily and I’ve used VCarve exclusively for Shapeoko projects.

Re: VCarve Desktop gcode for Shapeoko XL

I did get the bitsetter working with VCarve after Vetrix sent me an updated postprocessor that supports M6 gcode commands for multiple tools. I haven't tried opening CC JSON files with VCarve, but I doubt they'll work. It would be nice if the VCarve format was published like CC's JSON.

Re: VCarve Desktop gcode for Shapeoko XL

I actually had to update the postprocessor (from VCarve) that includes support for M6 tool change commands. Otherwise, the Bitsetter wasn't going to work properly with gcode files that contain multiple tools.

VCarve Desktop gcode for Shapeoko XL
