Edge Probing and

Postby X3msnake » Mon Dec 18, 2017 5:08 pm

Greetings

I have a Stepcraft Probe

I am trying to use it to probe the edges of a work in order to compensate for any angle diference on the work placement on the jig

I see UCCNC does not support plane rotation how can I do this then, What am I missing?

Best regards

The UCCNC does support plane rotation on the XY plane, it is the G68 and G69 codes.

Ok

Is there a roadmap to implement this in a near future?

What other solution can be used to rotate the toolpaths (maybe a plugin)?

Is there a good tutorial on how to integrate other softwares with a plugin for the UCCNC


I know of a open source software that would be able to do this G-Code Ripper, my knowlage in programming is basic but i think i could cook up a plugin if i can learn how the plugin implementation works...

G68 is already implemented. You'd just need to write a macro to do your edge probing and do the rotation.

As I said rotation is already implemented, so there is no roadmap, because the software already supports toolpath rotation.

There are C# and VB plugin templates which install with the UCCNC into the Plugins/Examples folder.
