I am very new to this, I have everything setup and have my final sled cut.
Now to cut my own stuff…
I have a simple file that I want to cut out for testing and I am having a hard time getting the step downs into the G-Code.
I started with Easel, have all the tooling paths and steps configured. But Easel doesn’t spit out the Gcode for me, just a svg.
So I load the svg into Inkscape, use the extension to create the Gcode, but no steps are there.
Do I need to make a Gcode file for each depth?
Is there a tutorial out there for gcode creation using the free tools that I have not been able to find?
I want to be able to specify my paths and step downs for multiple components. For example, I want to fully cut out one component all depths, before moving to the next one.
Tab creation would be nice too.
Hopefully I just missed a simple step. Thanks in advance for your help.
PS. Do you all work in mm or inches? is one easier in general in terms of programming?
