Trying to track down a working Linux CNC post for Mastercam X6. Looking at the APSX Spyder benchtop cnc that uses Linux CNC.

If anybody has a Spyder CNC would be interested in your thoughts on the machine?

Cheers

I am a self declared mastercam expert.

I made on at my job, I commented out the % and the program number and it runs good sofar. Ive done 3 axis stuff sofar

I used mpfan the generic fanuc post . If you were to post what you want the code to look like I can most likely get it to work. Fancy TCP logic would be over my head

Hi

I made a linuxcnc post for a friend some time ago, for X5 if my memory is correct.
3 and 4-axis and lathe with some restrictions, no tcp. Based on fanuc post(s).
I'll try to remember to dig the archives when I got home

Edit: added the modified posts.
