I’m a little worried that I can’t use my own CAM with the Nomad, despite the advertisement of “If you have a favorite CAM program and work flow The Nomad 883 will work with it. Carbide Motion can read gcode from any CAM program so you’ll never be locked into proprietary software.”
Specifically, has anyone generated g-code for the Nomad 883 from Fusion 360’s CAM workspace?
Shooting in the dark, I’ve tried mach3, grbl, Generic EMC, and haas. None have worked. I receive “Error in line 3: Unsupported G Code.”
Ed Ford mentioned in another post that the Mach3 and LinuxCNC post processors are similar to the Nomad, because they are both based on the NIST RS274/NGC standard.
Unfortunately, I read at CNCzone.com that implementers of the NIST RS274G standard often want their own extensions and those extensions make the code incompatible across other machines. For example, Mach3, while based on NIST RS274G, may not work with Nomad, also based on NIST RS274G, because the extensions are different.
Any corrections to this information? Suggestions? Solutions?
