CNCjs - What post processor

i use vectric to create my toolpaths.
As sender i use now CNCjs. Do i need to select a different post processor now? Or still the x-carve one.

Thank you.

Yes, that is correct. You will still use the x-carve post processor. I kind of like to think of it as being: You are driving an X-Carve and you are telling the software what type of vehicle you have.

A post processor is just a set of commands that tell the x-carve how to move. Some cnc controllers can interpret more commands than others. This way, you are sure to only send commands that the X-Controller recognizes.

You may find that some post processors are compatible in that they send the same commands but are named differently. While certainly not necessary, I would highly recommend understanding basic g-code commands and what they do. For example, search G28 and see what you come up with.

Good luck!

If you are using spindle control will the standard X Carve PP install the m3 and m5 commands?
