Re: #GCODE #gcode

Ok, if I read this right, you want to know if you need an automatic tool changer to use pcb-gcode?

The answer to that is NO, pcb-gcode outputs separate gcode files for etching, drilling, milling, etc.
The drill file will have multiple drill sizes in it, and you need to have a method of setting the Z0 for each drill size.

I have customized my user-gcode.h to do tool changes and uses a touch pad for tool length compensation.

If one does not have automatic tool change can the output be just etching or drilling.
