Drag knife gcode

I’m trying to use the Donek tools drag knife box maker and the code looks fine but Carbide motion doesn’t like it because it doesn’t have feed rate stuff, is there an easy way to fix this?

Edit in the feed rate along with the balance of the preamble at the top?

You know, if a bunch of people asked nicely at support@carbide3d.com maybe we could persuade the powers that be to add support for a drag knife to Carbide Create…


In correlation to the fish/fishing-pole analogy…Where did this code come from? Did you just copy and paste it (looks that way), it there some software that is generating it? Because there are other things missing (several modal gcodes and a proper ending (closing)

Donek tools has an excel sheet that will generate gcode based on the size of box u put in.

I’m having a hell of a time finding an easy way to do this. The processing seems easy unless you have no idea how the coding work IE like me.

I see…but what Post Processor (GRBL Friendly) are you using to post your file?

There are some other tools for this:


Nothing. I’m generating the code directly from the sheet

@WillAdams The wiki is how I found the excel sheet in the first place.

It seems there is no easy solution here at this point.

There are a few easy options. All you need to do is find a CAM program that you already use and import it. OR purchase the Fusion add on for $10… There are a few YouTube videos for support.

Did you try the dxf2gcode utility?
