automating M8/M9 commands on mastercam

Recommended Posts

Hello - I'm currently using Mastercam to generate gcode for a CNC machine with a print head end effector. The idea is to turn on the print-head for the toolpath and then off for the traverse paths. I'm currently doing that manually by editing the g-code but I'm interested in automating that process in order to generate complex prints. Is there a way to do so through mastercam?

Yes with a custom post processor this should be doable. Contact your reseller and they should be able to get you a quote on it.

If you are using Mastercam to program DED, FDM, and other extrusion additive or hybrid machines. You should be using the Aplus Plugin. Very easy to do what you are after with Aplus.
