Novice User - Need Help Generating G Code for CNC Router
« on: August 05, 2020, 16:56:01 pm »
Good afternoon, I just downloaded the software and am trying to generate g code from a bitmap image.  I upload the image into the software and I see the machining lines and everything but when I right click to generate the g code nothing happens at all.  I tried to look on youtube for some tutorials and nothing was helpful.  Any help would be appreciated.

Hello

With the Bitmap object ?
http://www.cambam.info/doc/dw/1.0.0/cad/bitmap.html

You must first add a MAchining Operation and set some values like feedrate, tool, depth ... etc ; maybe an engrave MOP if you want to engrave the contour of the digitized lines.
