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

( T0 : 1.0 )
G21 G90 G64 G40
G0 Z3.0
( T0 : 1.0 )
T0 M6
( Drill1 )
G17
M3 S1000
G0 X25.5935 Y189.8358
G98
G81 X25.5935 Y189.8358 Z-2.0 R3.0 F15.0
G81 X30.6735 Z-2.0
G81 X20.5135 Z-2.0
G81 X15.4335 Z-2.0
G80
G0 Z3.0
M5
M30

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.
