I’m experimenting with Solidworks CAM using the Hawkridge Post Processor. When I run the file, it asks for the tool and does the homing routine and the like. When it starts the cut though, it the motors make a pretty ominous sound and it doesn’t look like the spindle is moving, so I shut down the machine right away.
I don’t know GRBL or GCode very well, but the code is using “I” and “J” commands for contours. Not sure if GRBL supports this. Also, noted that lines N45 - N700 don’t have a “G” command at the beginning, then subsequent lines have “G1” and “G3” commands sprinkled in. I’ve posted the Gcode if anyone would like to take a look and share some insight.
Has anyone successfully used Solidworks CAM with this Hawkridge Post Processor?
