Drag Engrave - Disabling Spindle

(Mark Decker) #1

Attempting my first engraving with a spring-loaded drag diamond bit.

Although I have an S0M3, the spindle remains on (at a very slow rpm) when I start the job.

How can I get the spindle to be OFF?

Nevermind … I just deleted the S0M3 that Vectric produced in the gcode.

You could also add an M5 command, after the M3, to turn the spindle off. However, deleting the M3 command is probably the best approach.
