RhinoCAM and ShapeOKO

Post by MikeM_MikeM » Thu Jun 05, 2014 9:09 pm

Hi,
I have a problem, I have a few models in Rhino

And I want to generate the G-CODE from RhinoCAM, but I do not know how to configure it. (I know how to work RhinoCAM because I cut with another CNC)
When I Created the .nc, I preview in UniversalGcodeSender, and see lines in all directions.

I think the problem is the "POST PROCESSOR" I do not know which is compatible with Shapeoko.

I use:
Rhino 4.0
Rhino Cam 2.0
And in "Post processor" I have: Mach2-MM
(Yes, I use mm.)

Help please.
I Have international kit "Shapeoko 2" purchased from inventables. :)

I would also love to be able to use RhinoCAM with my Shapeoko.

RhinoCAM is a very powerful toolpath generator! I love it!

Cheers!

Try selecting a 'generic' postprocessor instead of one for Mach, as it will probably be more suitable for the GRBL controller.
Unfortunately, the postprocessor element is one of the more complex elements in the tool chain if there is not a usable one available.
Do a little experimentation with the ones you have available in Rhino, you may find a suitable one.

Hi,

I am also struggling to get a post processor for rhinocam.

I am usuing a TinyG and can't find a PP anywhere.

There also doesnt seem to be a generic one included with Rhinocam

Any Ideas?

Cheers
Tom

There are over 350 PostProcessors available on the RhinoCAM web page.
I would take a look over there and see if there is anything useful.
They are also just text files, so you can look at their content and tweek settings that are not working appropriately.

I have created a post processor for using with Rhinocam and TinyG.
See attached, (the forum wont allow the file extension .SPM on the upload, so please change .txt to .SPM when you download)

I have tested it for a few weeks and it works well.

Please let me know if you can think of any improvements

I added a G21 to the top of your file after the G90 and this is what I get in ChiliPeppr. It looks ok and is ready to mill without other changes.

Or, is this not what it's supposed to look like?

Looks good man,

You only really need to set the mm mode once i think,

but to be safe, no harm in adding g21
