CamBam drill sequence & Universal Gcode Sender

Post by johndoe » Fri Nov 07, 2014 11:08 pm

I created a drill sequence with Cambam. The sequence simulates properly. However, Universal Gcode Sender (1.07 and 1.08) executes a straight line. Any help to get the drill sequence to drill is appreciated.

Cambam Code

G21 G90 G64 G40
G0 Z3.0
( T0 : 1.0 )
T0 M6
( Drill1 )

G81 is not supported by GRBL. You can configure CamBam not to use it in its output.

did you figure out how to configure cambam to not use g81? i understand i go to my post processor settings, and I see where i can edit commands g81-g83, yet i don't understand how to configure not use these at all.

Try setting the Drilling Method to Spiral instead of Canned Cycle - this should generate the correct code for you.
