Hello, happy community !
Crossfire pro is installed, but not ready for production yet, as some compressor power issues arose, preventing good cuts. It is a hobby side project of a friend I am helping with, and you bet we can’t wait beaming through the sheets !
Meanwhile, I am practicing on the workflow. The table is connected to a Windows laptop, on which were installed all of the suggested software, which seems to work fine, albeit I did not yet test adding G-code to a simple design made in Fusion 360, and just tried the cuts manually from Fire Control.
I need your lights on how specific is G-code made from F360 to feed Fire Control, and what exactly is a post processor doing…
In fact, since I am using linux myself, I installed FreeCad to design the parts of an assembly project to be cut, and there is a Workbench module to create and export G-code…
Does anyone know if or how this produced G-code could be used in Firecontrol ?
Is a post processor a kind of translator of G-code to specific Fire control script ?
Well, thanks for any hints
Oh, and I was eventually given the incentive to write this after receiving an email stating that free version of F360 was now nerfed, something I saw quite a lot happening in the past, and I would really prefer using open-source software.
