There is a new option in the Post Processor that you have to enable to get pauses for spindle speed changes:

As one added bonus, at some point in the future when gSender displays the toolchange comments in the toast message, you’ll also get more information about the tool (tool number, description and comment field instead of just Txx):


I’ll give this a shot later but what is really needed is a spindle dwell command. Someone has posted one before that included the dwell added.

That would be fairly easy to add. Did you say someone did that already? If so, do you have a link? Either way, if I add it, can you test it?

I made a quick change to add a dwell after a spindle change. If you want to test it, it’s at:
