I’ve got a Nomad 883 on order. While I’ve used MeshCAM in the past - even wrote a post processor for one of my machines - and will use it when my Nomad 883 arrives, I’m used to using different CAM tools.
Towards that end I’m setting up to write post processors for SharpCAM and Bob CAD-CAM (V27).
I downloaded the supported G Codes file (from the documentation section) and MeshCAM build 26 and took a look at the Nomad post processor. I’m… surprised.
I see that the Nomad supports G02/G03 but those abilities appear to be commented out in the post processor definition.
While the documentation says that the lack of ARC definition will result in linear feeds the resultant G code file would be MUCH larger than a G02/G03 for circle and circular pockets.
Is there a reason for not sending G02/G03?
