Bit Setter

Post by Jeff » Sun Dec 22, 2019 12:38 pm

Yesterday I watched a video on using the bit setter. I asked weather it would work with Vectric Vcarve Pro .Thersponce was no. The gcode vectric wrote does not allow you to save 2 different tools the same file.
What he did say was that some one Here had did some to the gcode to make it work with the bit setter.
Would and body know where I might find that post.

Yes, the BitSetter works with Vectric software, you just need a post-processor which supports tool changes, please see:
