Re: #GCODE #gcode
Ah, so that brings up a question. Does the drill bit have to match the hole size or can one use a smaller bit? I'm not sure I need more than one size hole but eventually I will probably dive into bigger projects.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Not really sure I followed but if the drill fine has multiple drill sizes in it, does it pause to change drill bits?

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.
