What is a post processor?
« on: November 21, 2021, 19:27:23 pm »
Hi. Sorry for my bad English, I'm from Poland :D
My plasma machine use code like this.
Code: [Select]
3 // header
000000170 // header - project number
4 // header
5 // start free ride
+500+500 // Go to  +/-X  +/-Y
6 // end free ride
29 // start cut
53 // start cut
+1000+0+1000+1000+ // Line #1 - circle
+2000-0 // Line #2 - From this place X +2000 Y 0
+0-1000+1000+0+ // Line #3 - circle
-4000-0 // Line #4 - From this place  X -4000 Y 0
54 // End cut
38 // End cut
5 // start free ride
-500-500 // go to +/-X  +/-Y
6 // end free ride
99 // end project

1000 = 100mm
1 = 0.1mm

This machine uses relative coordinates. For example, a line 400mm long can be written like.
+1000 +0
+1000 +0
+2000 +0

Circle =  +1000 +0 +1000 +1000 +   = X Y X Y  +/- = X circle center / Y Circle Center / X end of line / Y end of line / + clockwise  or - counter clockwise

Can anyone adjust a post processor in CamBam to generate code like this?


@ edit

Yes post processors can be edited to change the output or geode. I know nothing about plasma cutters or it required geode so I can't  help with specifics bur I'm sure cambam could do it if you are willing to do a little research.

I think the answer is yes. Cause your request is very specific, I suggest to read the manual
and adapt an existing postprocessor.
best regards
